The right lighting can change a room from bright and cheery to warm and subtle simply by a turn of the knob or switch of a button. So choosing the right lamps and lighting fixtures is something you will want to spend some time and money doing. If you are remodeling your home there are some key accessorizing details you should consider such as window treatments whether they are blinds, shades or shutters, decorative pillows which can add some color and design to the space as well as floor lamps, table lamps and their lamp shades. The lighting in the room can change the mood and atmosphere in mere seconds but you need the right lampshades to create this effect. Most interior designers will recommend a lamp shade that is not white or off white. With the right lamp shades, you can create a visually stimulating effect with the space. So if you want to make an impact with your room's décor, picking out the right lamps and shades would be a great place to start.
It is advised that you choose a lamp of appropriate size. For instance, in a narrow table a small-sized lamp would look best. On the other hand, a bulky table will need to have a larger-sized lamp. It can also help if you take the necessary measurements which can ensure that the height of the lamp will be perfect for the area you are going to place it. Also ensure that the bottom of the shade should be even with your cheekbone when you are sitting on a chair. The light should also fall on the page you are reading.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
Contemporary lamps come in various types such as table lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps, shaded, and chandeliers. Also available are ceiling lamps, hanging lamps, pendant lamps, and wall sconces.

They come in attractive colors, designs, and textures with distinctive ornamentation and colorful embroidery.
