On top of our impressive selection of lamps, we also offer lampshades, such as bell lamp shades and drum lamp shades. Lampshades are great for dimming the overall lighting of a lamp — perfect for when you’re trying to add a soft glow to a room.
But how do you find a lampshade that is sized correctly, doesn’t clash with the other objects in your home and works effectively? We’ve provided a few tips below to help you determine what kind of lampshade you should choose for your lamps:
- Measure the space where the lampshade will go, and choose a lampshade that will fit within that space. As a general rule of thumb, the height of your desired lampshade should be about three-quarters of the height of the lamp base. Its width should be about the same measurement as the lamp base. When in doubt, go larger.
- Choose a lampshade material that will help you achieve your lighting intention. Lampshades are made of different materials in order to provide customers with a variety of choices, depending on their lighting goal and design. A heavier material will dim the room more than a lighter one will.
- Determine what color and design you want the lampshade to be. This all boils down to your personal style and design preference. Keep in mind that less light will shine through when you choose a darker color.
- Mix and match your lampshades and bases. Luckily, lampshades aren’t a permanent installation. If you choose a lampshade you grow tired of, you can always replace it with a new one!
