How to Choose Lampshades

Some people may figure a lamp and a lampshade are inseparable from lampshade manufacturing on. This is not true. Many times, we may find the lamp to be desirable, but the lampshade just does not go well with our interior; the color is not wanted; the material is different than what is expected; etc.

The great news is that you don't have to maintain lampshades; you can decide to purchase replacement lampshades for table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, etc. You can purchase silk lampshades, fabric lampshades, plastic lampshades, etc.

Consider some tips while choosing on a lampshade that is best for you:

- Some choose lampshades that will fall about one-third to two-thirds length from the top of the lamp. There is no 'rule' when it comes to lampshades, but for aesthetic reasons, you may want to choose a shade that can completely cover the metal components at the top of the lamp.

- Traditionally, a consumer will keep in mind the shape of the lamp in regards to the lampshade; a round lamp is complemented by a circular shade, an angular lamp is topped with an angular-shaped shade, and so on. This does not need to be a rule either; yet, a contrast theme is suggested to be implemented throughout the room if the shapes differ.

- Lampshades come in a variety of colors, yet their function should be considered before selecting a hue. A darker shade will not give off as much light. You may want to decide on a lighter color if the lamp is used for reading or viewing purposes.

- As previously stated many lampshades are available to the consumer such as fabric lampshades, clip-on lampshades, hard-back lampshades, and more. Think about how the material will endure and need maintenance before making a purchase. Some shades may attract more dirt and dust than others, as well as be more difficult to clean due to its contours.
