LAMPSHADE GUIDES


How to measure a lampshade

When you buy a shade for a new lamp or for a lamp that you already have you need to make sure to choose the right size.  

You can use a tape measure to determine the bottom and top diameters and also the vertical height.


How to clean a lamp

First of all, it is important to check the type of lampshade you have.

Water can be used to clean a shade only if the fabric of the lampshade is stitched onto the frame.


How to choose the lampshade style

Finding the perfect lampshade can seem impossible.

Lamps come in every possible shape and color, and so do their lampshades.


How to choose the fabric of lamp

Lamps come in almost every conceivable design, color, and size, adding warmth and character to our homes.
