Elevate your space with glass lamp shades, from traditional to sleek. You can upgrade your shades on all kinds of light fixtures– lamps and even ceiling fixtures, flush mounts to pendants. Many shades are interchangeable and can be used on a variety of bases like chandeliers, sconces and more.
Tips on How to Replace your Shade
Glass lamp shades are an easy DIY update. There are a couple of things to keep in mind to ensure your replacement goes smoothly:
1. Determine what type of glass shade holder you have. Is it a fixture-type holder that uses screws to stay in place, or is it a straight-type shade holder?
2. Make sure your glass lamp shade is the appropriate size for the shade holder, or "fitter," on your lamp or fixture.
Choose endless variety of shapes, sizes and styles of glass lamp shades. A frosted glass lamp shade creates a beautiful diffused light, an ideal choice for bedside tables or cozy reading nooks. Seeded glass lighting shades pair wonderfully with Edison-style light bulbs for a modern-industrial throwback, while patterned globes and shades add the perfect pop of color to an basic fixture. Even a simple white globe lamp shade can completely change the look and feel of your fixture.
A replacement glass shade can give new life to an outdated ceiling fan. A new pendant shade can freshen that fixture over the kitchen island. Used as an accent to brighten any room, glass lamp shades can provide a soft light, delicate detailing or vibrant color your space has been missing all along.
