The rectangular lamp shades you choose to put on your lamp bases can do one of two things. They could create a great look for your lighting or they could ruin a perfectly good lamp. You should therefore consider these factors when choosing new shades: whether to opt for plain or decorative, size, shape and colour.
Before buying, consider your decoration of rectangular lamp shades. Plain bases can be made more interesting with decorative, patterned shades and decorative bases, particularly painted ceramic bases, should be accompanied by plain lamp shades. Using shades with bold prints or colours over a decorative lamp base can create a strong color clash and end up looking a mess. Then the size of the shade. Get a shade that’s too small and your lamp will look strange, especially if it is a tall, floor standing base. Get a shade that’s too big and everything will look out of proportion. Think about the location of the light and its proximity to walls and places where people might walk. Don’t have a shade that’s so wide it’ll be in the way of walls and the surroundings.
The colour of the rectangular lamp shades is also must be considered. The shade should match the base, of course, but also the general decor of the space in which the lamp will be placed. Bear in mind that a darker colour will restrict the amount of light cast around the room and too pale a shade could result in the light being overly bright, defeating the object of the use of the lamp for subtle additional lighting. Finally consider material when buying rectangular lamp shades. Some materials attract more dust than others, although all lamp shades will become dusty regularly. Glass shades are the easiest to clean since they can be removed and washed in soapy water, whereas paper shades cannot be wet and may therefore have to be replaced more quickly than other materials.
