Choosing a certain model of lampshades is usually a matter of personal taste; yet, the level of room formality as well as the other decoration items are important in influencing the choice. Lampshades materials vary from brass, plastic, and porcelain to textile patterns such as linen, satin, silk, velvet or satin. Here too, colors and design also depend on personal preferences particularly since the offer is so wide and the choices almost limitless.
For anyone who wonders about the proper size the ideal lampshades should have, the general rule has it that there should be at least an inch distance between the bulb and the shade as such; otherwise the risk of causing a fire is pretty high and no bulbs with a wattage higher than 75 should be used. From the aesthetic point of view, the size of the lamp shades needs to be harmoniously matched with the base; nevertheless, there are modern models that break this rule for artistic purposes.
Whenever you want to clean the dust off the lampshades try to use some form of vacuum brush or even a blow dryer so as to make sure that no dirt is left behind; devices that function on suction principles could also go well for the matter on the only condition that the cleaning process be a light one. If dusting is not enough for efficient cleaning, then, you’ll have to turn to a spray or another form of a chemical cleaning device that gets inside the texture and eliminates even the nastiest blotches.
