Lamp Shades Decorate a Room


When redecorating a room, don't forget about your lighting. While it may seem that you will have to purchase all new lamps for your new décor, sometimes all you need is a new lampshade. Replacing a lampshade is a lot cheaper than purchasing a whole new lamp.

I find it is easier to wait until your major room components are in place before selecting new lampshades. Let the theme of your new room eveolve, then select lamp shades that either compliment or contrast with your theme. For example, a wild safari room with a zebra rug on the floor, might be well-served by a simple solid-color lamp shade to help offset the boldness of the rug. However, in a less wild décor, such as a simple, clean, contemporary design, a bold lampshade would add visual interest to the room. Don't be afraid to experiment!

Lampshades come in a variety of different shapes, textures, and materials. These are your grandmother's lampshades! Materials can range from paper, to fabric, to natural materials like tree leaves, to fur, to plastic. And designs can range from sold colors, to patterns, to abstract designs.

Before you head out to your lampshade store or place your order online for a replacement shade, be sure to take a look at your current lampshade. Lampshades come in a variety of different sizes (usually measured around the circumference of the shade) and mounting styles. Some shades mount directly to the base lamps while others mount to a support bracket that surrounds the bulb, while others still clip directly onto the light bulb.

Be brave and daring with your choice of lampshades. They are easy to replace if you hate your choice, but a simple lampshade can add that punch of drama to a room.

He feels the home is just a blank canvas or stage that we choose to live in!
