Why you need a ceiling lampshade
1. Light distribution
Ceiling lampshades help to reduce bulb light glares and shadows by diffusing them.
The result? An even light distribution in a room that allows you to easily accomplish your tasks without straining your eyes.
2. Aesthetics and decor
There are many beautifully designed and colored ceiling lampshades to enhance the aesthetic appeal of any space.
In addition, you can use them to create symmetry or focal points in a space.
3. Bulb protection
Ceiling lampshades also protect light bulbs from dust and damage, which helps extend the bulbs’ life and reduce the need for frequent replacements.
How to choose the right ceiling lampshade
When selecting a ceiling lampshade, there are several factors to consider:
The lampshade size should be proportional to your space and light fixture.
It can seem out of place and disrupt the room’s balance if the shade is too large or small.
As a rule of thumb, we make ceiling lampshades with a width of not less than 30cm and a height of not less than 15cm.
Your ceiling lampshade should complement the shape of your light fixture and space.
For example, a bell-shaped lampshade would look out of place in a modern minimalist room.
Therefore match your interior design, style and size of your space with the right lamp shade.
The lampshade’s material should complement your room’s style and the light fixture.
A fabric lampshade would look out of place in a room with industrial decor, while a metal lampshade would look out of place in a room with a rustic or bohemian vibe.
Whatever lampshade you choose, the color should complement your color scheme.
A lampshade in a bold color can add a pop of color to a neutral space, while a lampshade in a neutral color can complement a bold color scheme.
How to fit a lamp shade
Follow these simple steps to change your lampshade with ease:
1. Assess your ceiling light fixture and ensure it’s switched off.
2. If a light bulb: Unscrew the bulb, delicately attach the lamp shade and re-screw the bulb back into place.
4. If a tip or finial screw on top: Unscrew the tip, attach your shade, and re-screw the tip.
5. Then, turn the light switch on to see how it looks and lights up.
