How to Choose the Best Lampshade

Table and Floor Lamps MI Lampshades are a great way to give any room in your home a style boost, and they’re easy to switch out. However, if you’re not an interior design pro, you may be “in the dark” as to how to pick one!

Here’s how to choose the best lampshade for any room in your home:

Complement or contrast

Consider the overall style and color scheme of the room, and decide whether you want the lamp to stand out or blend in. For example, if your room is decorated in shades of gray, you could pick a lampshade in the same hue or go for a bright pop of teal or orange.

Pick the right size

Your lampshade should be about two-thirds of the height of the lamp base, plus or minus an inch. Proportion is key, so get out that measuring tape.

Know your shapes

Think outside the “big and round” box and consider lampshades in a variety of shapes. For example, the elegantly sloping sides of a bell-shaped lampshade can complement a curved base, and a drum lampshade will have a contemporary look.
