Lamp Shades add to the room décor by two purposes of looking good as a decorative item and, with their light, make décor look good. You can consider these factors while choosing a new lampshade for the living room and bedroom, i.e., whether to select for plain or enhancing, dimension, figure, and color.
Decorative Lamp Shades:
You must think about your lamp base before buying it. Plain lampshades should be accompanied by decorative bases, having painted ceramic base and even plain base can be more exciting and can give a decent look to your room. Using shades having bold prints all over the lamp base creates a strong color clash and end up seeming like chaos.
The Size of the Shade:
You can find a shade that is small enough, and your shade lamp is going to look odd, especially if it is a tall and floor footing base. You should find a shade that is significant so that the whole thing will appear ratio. First of all, consider the position of the beam shade and its closeness to the walls and spaces where people can walk. Don’t have that kind of shade which is too wide, as the shade will come on the walls and it won’t look nice. The height of the lampshades should be about 2/3rd of the height of the base, and the width of the shade should be an inch wider than the broadest part of the base. Always use discretion and common sense, along with this rule.
The shape of the shade:
You should never mix and max the shapes and the shades. It will make your lamp look a bit strange. For round lampshades, the finished base will look great, and for a square lampshade, the square base will look great.
Color of the shade:
The shade must match the base and universal décor of the room in which the lamp will be positioned. Keep in mind that the darker color will not allow a lot of light to pass about the room, and too light shade will affect the glow being too bright.
The material of the shade:
The last thing to consider is the material while trading lamp shades. There are some materials which draw more dust, so while buying keep in mind that you don’t buy that material as they are very delicate and need to be handled well. Instead, you can opt for glass shade, which is easy to clean as they can be detached and cleaned in the water.
