Home lighting can vary from home to home, depending on the type of home design you choose. Lamp shades are a great way of diffusing light in rooms where lamps are used as source of light. To add sophistication to your lamp, get a lamp shade that will not just add an aesthetic appeal in your room, but that will also enhance the quality of light you get.
- When choosing a lamp shade, first look at the shape of your lamp base. If it is circular, go for circular lamp shades, while if it is square go for square lamp shades. For those lamps that hang from the ceiling, getting a shade is much easier as it can go with any shape. This also applies to candle stick lamps.
- The color of the lampshade should complement the look of your room. When choosing the color, keep in mind the function of the lampshade in your room. For a more relaxed look, darker colors will be suitable, while if you need to have more light in the room, go for lighter colors.
- For lamps that stand on the desk, it will be ideal to measure the height of the lamp base. The lampshade should be ideally be two-thirds the height of the lamp base. This will ensure that the proportions of your lamp are balanced.
- You can also choose to bring out your inner creativity using your lampshades. You can thus use shades that come in pleats, floral or even the pendant shades. Just be sure that the colors complement your room décor.
