Keeping everything in proportion is vital so your lamp isn’t dwarfed by a giant shade or unbalanced by a small one. Should you be in a dilemma when your lamp is in between two sizes of lampshade, choose the larger of the two as proportionally it sits better and distributes more light. The perfect sized lampshade should hide the fittings underneath without encroaching upon the lamp base itself. Bear in mind where you will be positioning your lamp in the room; will there be plenty of space around it, or will it be in close proximity to a wall, a piece of furniture or placed near the path of frequent footfall? If so, it makes sense to choose one with a narrow profile and pair it with an equally narrow shade, then it’s less likely to get damaged. And don’t worry if you order a shade on- line you can return it for a full refund minus return shipping.
