Choosing appropriate lamp shades
There are certain things which should be considered while choosing the floor lamp shade. The first and the most important consideration are choosing the lamp shade with proper height. You must choose the lamp shade which is two third of the height of base. This is necessary so that the balance of top and bottom weight is maintained. There is much hardware in the floor lamps like the wire frame around the light bulb. So make sure that the lamp shade does not expose the hardware underneath.
The shape of the floor lamp shade should be chosen such that it matches with the base. If the base is round then the round shade will suit best. If the base is square or angular then the square shade will suit best. In short the shade of the floor lamp should be chosen such that it complements the base in best manner. If you are choosing the floor lamp for the purpose of reading then the translucent shade is more preferable as it provides the ambient light. An opaque shade is the best option when you are using the lamp only as the accent light. If you are having the room which has antiques then the pleating lampshades will give the traditional look.
