Its all about the lighting

When it comes to lighting up a room in style, a professional lampshade can make all the difference. But how can you ensure that your lampshade looks perfect and polished? Follow these expert tips to create the ideal lampshade for your space.

Choose the Right Size and Shape

The first step in making a professional lampshade is selecting the correct size and shape. The size of the lampshade should be proportional to the lamp base, typically with the bottom diameter being about twice the size of the lamp base. The shape of the lampshade should complement the style of the lamp and the room it will be placed in.

Here is a quick size guide -

20cm diameter with a height of 20cms to 30cms are suitable for small bedside lamps, nurseries, a group of pendants for a hallway.

25cm diameter with a height of 20cms to 30cms, are great for small feature lamps especially a modern mid century look, bedside lamps and office table lamps.

30cm and 35cm diameter with heights of 20cm to 30cms make lovely lound lights and good for any area in your home, again as a small group of pendants or as a pendant in a child's room.  This size is suitable for most existing small to medium lamp bases.

40cm diameter with a height of 20cms to 35cms are great feature lamps, suitable for a floor standing base as-well as a medium to large table lamp.  Great on tall boys and as hanging pendant lights.

There are also 4 sizes in our empire/tapered lampshade kits.
