LAMP SHADE GUIDE
How to choose the right lamp shade?
It can be difficult to find the right shade for the lamp base, here are our tips & recommendations on how to think about the choice of lamp shade. Everything from size, shape, color and material.
Choose the right bracket, here are our different types of brackets:
SHADE WITH CLIP
This bracket fits best on a bulb-shaped light source
SHADE FOR CHANDELIER BULB
This bracket fits on all chandelier bulbs
SHADE WITH RING
This bracket is mounted directly on the lamp holder
SHADE WITH RING ON TOP
This bracket is mounted directly on the floor lamp bulb holder (intended only for lamp holders with bracket pointing downwards)
CHOOSING THE SIZE OF THE LAMP SHADE
The height and width of the lampshade and lamp base should not be the same. To calculate the height, you can do this by dividing the lamp into three thirds, where the lamp base is 2/3 and the shade is 1/3. This means that if your lamp base is 40 cm, the shade should be half the size, which is 20 cm in this case.
The width of the shade should be twice as large as the lamp base. That is, if the lamp base is 10 cm wide then the shade should be around 20 cm wide, ie 10 cm on each side when placed on the lamp base.
MIX AND MATCH WITH COLOR
Matching with similar colors creates harmony in the room. Blue with blue shades and green with green shades. However, it does not have to be the same tones, it can be colors that complement each other, for example warm colors such as red and orange.
If you have red pillows on the sofa, please combine with an orange lampshade. Just as with pillows and curtains, lampshades are a great way to get a more daring and lively color in the room that breaks off and creates contrast. Test with a color that stands out among the interior design at home. The possibilities are endless!
