Choosing the right lampshade can make your home look more beautiful and coordinated, so how should you choose the right one?
1. Choose the right size lampshade
Lampshades are a bit like hats, if they are too big or too small for the person wearing them on their head they can look silly, if the correct proportions are maintained the effect will be harmonious and stunning. As a general rule, the height of a lampshade should be approximately three quarters of the height of the base and the width of the base of the shade should be roughly equal to the height of the lamp from the base to the fitting. The sides of the shade should ideally be at least half an inch wider than the base to keep the whole lamp looking balanced.
2. Choosing the right shape of lampshade
Lampshades come in different shapes and when choosing the right shape you need to consider both the base and the room and location of the lamp. Round lampshades are usually more popular, but a clever advantage of square lampshades is that you can place them against a wall, so they can be useful if you have limited space.
3. Choosing lampshade designs and colors
Lampshades come in many designs and colors and you can always find something to complement and enhance the décor of your room. Here are some tips when choosing a design and color.
● The right amount of transparency
If you need ambient light in the room or if you use a lamp for reading, choose a translucent shade. However, if the lamp is only for decorative accent lighting, then a dark opaque shade will do.
● Bold use of color
Lampshades are a great way to introduce a bit of color into an otherwise understated room. You generally don't have to worry as much about matching existing colors and materials as you do with curtains and carpets, so don't be afraid to experiment.
● Comfortable options
If your room has a cozy corner, then a translucent ivory shade will be the perfect choice to provide soothing light.
● Mix and match lampshades and bases
Of course, the best way to find the perfect lampshade is to try out many different shades with your lamp base until you find the one that feels right. '
