There are so many different kinds of lampshades to choose from nowadays, it’s no longer just your average paper shades in a range of different colours. How can you possibly decide what it is that you want?
You don’t have to! Clashing being a big no is a thing of the past, so why not mix and match different colours, patterns and styles to add a bit of quirk and fun to your home.
Before choosing a lamp, you need to look at the proportions of your room and where the lampshade or lamp is going to go, as you don’t want it to be overbearing to the room or get lost into the ceiling, so ensuring you get the perfect size to suit you is essential.
It should be easy to judge the shape and size of your lamp/shade if you don’t already know the specific sizes, but you also need to review the vertical location width and length as this will determine whether your chosen product will fit in the desired space perfectly.
What style are you looking for in your home, contemporary, traditional, antique, funky and more – it’s important you know what you want the lamp to portray before looking. As well as this, do you want it to be a statement piece in the room or just work to point towards the real statement piece.
Now that you have the practicalities out of the way, you can start seriously looking into the colours and patterns best suited to you.
