When you think of a lamp, probably the first image that comes to mind is a typical lampshade in the established triangle form. But one of the lighting options available to you today is lamps topped with square lamp shades. And if you look hard enough, you will find that these lamps and their modern shades will work in most rooms in your home. Lamps are a great addition to any room as they are every bit as functional as they are decorative. Sometimes you will find that there is a room with a particularly dark corner or a small nook that you would like to start using for reading. In those cases, it makes sense to buy a lamp, but rather than just buy any old lamp, you should definitely give consideration to the many different styles of lamps that are available out there now.
For example, if you have a highly visible shelf or end table that is in need of a lamp, instead of just immediately running out and getting the first lamp you see with its normal lampshade, you should consider getting a lamp that has a bit of personality or flair to it – one that will also enhance your room. Square lamp shades can provide just that little boost of interest and creativity that your room may be lacking. The square shade is interesting for sure because it is so different and unexpected when you consider the usual lamps you will find available out there.
A square lamp shade does require a little bit of extra room around it. Whereas a normal triangle shaped lamp fits easily in most corners, you must ensure, preferably by measuring the area, that the corners of the square lamp shade will fit into an area without knocking into the wall or furnishings around it. However, this is a small consideration and in most cases you will be able to choose these shades and give the design of your room an extra level of visual interest and a piece that is not only highly functional but also very stylish.
