Selecting the right lamp shades are always a simple and practical way to improve both lighting fixture and interior decoration. Even though most lighting fixtures already come with shades, it does not mean you cannot buy replacements, such as drum lamp shades or ones in different colors. Whether you plan on buying lamp shades for floor lamps or ones for desk lamps, follow these tips to guide you when shopping.
Choosing the perfect design for lamp shades will require you to take several design elements into account first. For the choice of color, it is absolutely true that it should complement the choice of color in the room. Choose either bold colors to stand out or a more subtle one to blend with the surroundings. And aside from the color decision, the lamp shade is ideally to fit with the base as well. This will require you to view both of the base and shade as a pair rather than separated items.
And one important aspect you also need to take into account is how your choice of lamp shades can fit in the interior room. For example, you may need to choose smaller lamp shade for a bedside table lamp, especially if the table itself is also small in size. The same also applies when your bedroom has tight space available to get in and out freely of your bed. On the other hand, if the lighting fixture is going to be placed next to an accent wingback chair, wider lamp shade can make a more suitable choice.
Determine if the lamp shades will perform only for ambience, for function, or even both. Therefore, you can also make a difference by choosing the right color for the lamp shade while it diffuses the light from the bulb to provide a relaxing ambiance. Light toned lamp shade is recommended if you wish for more light diffusion in the room. On the other hand, to create an ambiance or mood in the space, consider using darker for the shades.
Remember that safety does matter, even in the use of lamp shades. Make sure the shade fits proper distance from the bulb, considering all bulbs produce heat. Use the size harp to adjust the lamp shade. You can also adjust the distance by using a variety of sized fitters sitting above the light bulb. This will ensure that the lamp shade adequately sits for safety, as well as to prevent the lamp shade from getting burnt.
