Ambient lighting from lampshades

Lamps and lampshades enhance your room by turning a simple lamp into a work of art. The size, shape and proportion of the screen should be considered in relation to the base and function of the table top as well as the color, style and material of the shade.

Practical uses of lampshades

Lampshades serve different purposes. Lampshades are not just a decorative element in a room, but protect your eyes from the direct glare of the light bulb but direct and focus the light on where it is needed. While adding color to your room, they dissipate heat from the lamp. Lampshades are very effective for filtering and scattering light to change the atmosphere between soft and sharp.

Different types of lampshades

There are different types of lampshades that correlate with different functions. The light emitted from the top of the shadow bounces off the ceiling to provide ambient light while the light emitted under the shadow provides a light that focuses on the surrounding areas. The shade of the lamp also emits additional light. Light shades let the light pass through them while darker shades tend to block the light. Higher cylindrical shades light up by creating a narrow funnel of light while shallow drum-shaped shades provide wide scattered light. Bell-shaped shades are very popular because they provide elegant light and are best suited for table lamps with a curved base. Other shades are Empire shades, Coolie shades, Oval shades, hexagon and octagonal shades, Tiffany shades and Art glass shades. Tiffany shades have hundreds of pieces of colored glass in beautiful and intricate patterns that create a style statement on your table. In the same way, art glass shades are designed from a tempered glass that can be shaped into any shape or design in vibrant colors and several shades.

Match the correct lampshade to the lamp base

The base of the lamp determines the shape of the lampshade that fits perfectly. A curved table lamp base is best complemented by a bell-shaped screen. Rounded or cylindrical bases tend to fit rounded shades. A thin lamp base looks good with a drum, rectangular or pyramid-shaped shade. A square base will be better with a square shade. Sometimes a colorful exotic shaped bass will look best with a simple and ordinary lampshade.
