Lampshades come in all shapes and sizes and can be paired with the right sized lamp base when fitted well. The right lampshade can provide an accent to your home's décor. You must know how to measure one to make sure it fits your lamp well. You also need to understand which fittings are ideal for different lamps. .
As a general rule of thumb, measure the height of the lampstand from the very bottom to the top (excluding the bulb holder.) We recommend dividing this measurement by 3 to get your ideal diameter / width for the lampshade.
Lamp shades are sized by measuring cross the diameter at the bottom of the shade - so if the shade diameter measures 25cm across the bottom, then it is known as a 25cm shade.
When it comes to floor lamps, they should be 58 to 64 inches tall . The bottom of the lamp shade should not be lower than the eye level of a seated person. It can be at or above eye level.
The width of the lampshade (diameter at the bottom) should be roughly equal to the height of the lamp base . The height of the lampshade should be about two thirds the height of the lamp base. The lampshade should be the wider than the widest part of the lamp base.
To install a ceiling light without wiring, look for plug-in pendant lights . These are single lights that hang by a cord from the ceiling and plug into a nearby outlet.
Install 2 ceiling hooks or a ceiling hook and an anchor . Situate this anchor or hook where you want the light to hang from and screw it into the ceiling. The other hook should go in the corner of the room in which you plan to run the cord down to the outlet.
To install a wall-mounted light, you'll use a ceiling box and wire just as you would for a ceiling light . Most sconces mount with a center stud so you can level the fixture even if the box is not level.
There are various stylish ceiling fan designs, and they can help provide energy savings in the summer as well as winter. Installing a ceiling fan where a light fixture exists is an easy option for updating your home's decor while also increasing its energy efficiency .
Ceiling fans often come with a mounting flange beneath the fan motor that can accommodate an optional light kit. In many cases, you can replace the light kit that accompanied the ceiling fan with a different style of light .
