Why are modern-day lampshades important and what are their functions?
They can be freestanding, wall-mounted, or fixed to hang in certain areas of the home such as in the kitchen or dining room.
There is a great selection of options available for lampshades. Lampshades are made in a variety of materials ranging from paper shades to glass globes, and are symmetrically shaped in forms such as the popular lampshade drum, cone, barrel, or square. These shades come in various colors and may be trimmed with lace or ribbon.
Replacement lampshades, however, offer more than aesthetics to a room. Lampshades may be used to direct light for personal reading or can be used to provide general lighting to large rooms or walkways.
Colorful custom lampshades can provide tinted light that offers a sense of serenity or romance to a room. Often this type of shade is used in a bathroom or bedroom to aid in relaxation. Some shades even offer the ability to emit fragrance to a room as the light warms the scent or oil.
