A lamp shade is that part of the lamp that covers the lightbulb and diffuses the light. However in this article when we mention a lamp shade we will also refer to the lamp models. The lightning system in a house not only provides light so that we can do various stuff after the sunset, but it is part of the interior and has aesthetic and decorative features.
You can find a variety of lamp shades on the market. They vary according to their shape – conical, ball-like, cylindrical and many others. There are floor lamps, desk or table top-mounted lamps, suspended lamps.. The last ones are the most popular choice. . The materials that lamps are made of vary, too. Metal, glass, paper, fabrics and even wood.
Choosing the right lamp shade can be quite a challange. It would be easier if you first decide where you need the light to come from. Are you going to put the lamp by the bed, on a drawer, on the floor in the corner or to be pendant on the ceiling. This way you cut down some of the options.
On one hand it provides light for our home and it must be quality and functional. On the other hand it should fit our interior. As we said, lamp shades have not only practical use, but they can be part of the decoration. We usually need only one or two lamps in a room, but we have more, because they are a beautiful accessorie. So, when you buy a lamp shade think of it as an improvement of your home. It can be in the same style and color theme as the rest of the interior, or it can be more original and play the role of an accent.
