Lamps are a great way to enhance the lighting in a room while adding to the decor and atmosphere of your home. Buying a small table lamp is always fun, but sometimes you just want a new lampshade for your existing lamp. Lampshades come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes and it often gets a little stressful to choose the right one. Small table lamps can be placed on your bedside tables or on the side tables in your living room. Small table lamps are sometimes used to mark a work of art or a decorative object.
Fittings for small lampshades
There are different types of fittings but two types of light bulb clamps that are often used in table lamps. The two light bulb clamps are the long and narrow light bulb clamp and the regular clip that is more rounded in shape. The luminaires include washing machine, chimney fitter, reflector bowl fitter, euro fitter and sanding or threaded UNO fitter.
Choose the right shape of the shade for a small table lamp
There are some general rules when choosing a shade for a table lamp, but there are also exceptions. A round lamp with a round bottom should have a round lampshade while a square bottom looks good with a square shade. The same applies to the size, smaller shade for a smaller base and a larger shade for a larger base. If you are replacing an old lampshade, it is best to take exact measurements of your old screen by checking the length and diameter and then buying a new shade with the same dimensions.
Once you have decided on the size of the lampshade, you can choose a pattern from the large selection. When it comes to a decorative lamp with a lot of color, a subtle shade that matches one of the lamp’s colors will give a distinct look. If the bottom of the lamp is smooth, try a shade in a light color or one with a little ornament or a fringe. Vivid colorful shades on oriental lamps can add a little color to your room. Art glass shades and Tiffany shades can add a little class and style to your home due to their unique look. Lampshades come in countless shapes and sizes in plastic, fabric and glass.
Having small table screens is thus a great way to provide lighting options and add color to your home. A new lampshade can bring new life to your lamp and your room as well.
