Glass Lamp Shades

Decorating your home often involves deciding how to add the right amount of lighting without compromising on design. With numerous options available for lamps and lamp shades, the number of looks you can create is potentially unlimited.

Make a statement with a bright, bold glass shade, or go with a more classic, etched glass motif. Whichever you prefer, a glass lamp shade can diffuse light efficiently and provide a design element you may have never considered.

The major purpose of any lamp shade is to temper the intense light provided by a bare lightbulb, shielding the eyes from its extreme brightness. In addition, it can diffuse or reflect light creating a certain ambiance in your living room or bedroom, or be tilted in a way as to highlight something such as artwork. For many, however, it serves more profoundly as a decorative addition to the room.

For home offices that require task lighting opt for a shade with a wide, open base such as an empire or bell-shaped piece, as it directs the light downward over your workspace. For ambient lighting in living areas or bedrooms, hurricane, oval, or round shades help diffuse the light more effectively.

A good lighting rule is to choose a lamp shade that allows enough light to shine through for the location. Too thin, and you may have too much intense light. Too thick or opaque, and you render the lamp useless. For this reason, a glass lamp shade may well be the perfect choice every time. Glass shades diffuse light,protect the eyes from sharp rays, and create a unique design element all at the same time.

Fortunately, glass shades come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and designs. From hourglass-shaped shades to the more traditional and classy stained glass pieces, you have many choices. Stylish, fashionable, decorative, and light-enhancing, these shades can dress up any room.
