Question: Can you put a dimmer switch on a floor lamp?

Can you add a dimmer switch to any lamp?

A dimmer switch can be installed anywhere that an existing on or off switch is in place. Replacing the current toggle switch with a dimmer switch will allow you to change the lights’ brightness, so long as you are using a light bulb that is compatible with the dimmer you have chosen.

Can a plug in light be dimmable?

Yes, a smart plug can be used to dim the lights but it must be a specialized, dimmable smart plug. The best dimmable smart plug is the Z-Wave Plus Smart Light Dimmer Plug. You’ll also want to ensure the bulb you are dimming is capable of being dimmed (preferably NOT a Compact fluorescent light bulb).

Can I put a scarf over my lamp?

Do not drape clothing (scarves, hats) on top of lamp shades. It doesn’t take much for the clothing to ignite from the heat of the bulb.
