For interior design enthusiasts, lampshades are key elements in the layout of a space. However, certain mistakes are frequently made when choosing and maintaining these lighting accessories. In this article, we'll go over common mistakes to avoid so that lampshades blend seamlessly into your decor.

Ignoring the ideal size

It is essential to choose suitable sizes for your lampshades for the luminaire for which they are intended. Inadequate dimensions can unbalance the aesthetics of the room and affect the diffusion of light. It is therefore recommended to measure the height, diameter, width and length that are suitable, as well as the associated bulb to ensure perfect harmony.

Fleeing the quality of materials

The choice of quality materials is essential for the durability and appearance of the lampshades. Lower quality materials are likely to deteriorate over time, presenting problems such as fading, tears or warping. It is essential to ensure that lampshades are made from durable materials that are suitable for their use.

The lampshade should harmonize with the overall style of the room. It is best to avoid mixing contemporary style lampshades with traditional decoration, and vice versa. Consistency is a key element in creating a harmonious overall aesthetic.

Regular maintenance of lampshades is essential to maintain their appearance and durability. Dust, dirt and stains can build up over time. It is therefore recommended to follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning, using appropriate methods depending on the material of the lampshades.

Neglecting lighting

Lampshades should be chosen according to the desired lighting atmosphere in the room. Translucent lampshades will diffuse soft light, while fabric lampshades will create a warm, subdued atmosphere. It is therefore important to take into account the desired lighting effect.
