Rules for buying floor lamps in glass

The height of the shadow

Floor lamps have become an attractive part of the living room and the most important thing with the floor lamps is the lampshade. Choosing a lampshade seems easy, but the challenging part is that the lampshade must fit with the bottom of the lamp and the interior of the room. There are a number of glass screens in stores and the online market and it is your choice to choose the one that suits your needs. The lampshades are like hats and if they are too small or large it looks stupid. Thus, the perfect size of the lampshade is important.

The height of the shadow

There are some rules of thumb. The height of the screen should be three quarters of the height of the base. The base width of the screen must be equal to the lamp height from base to luminaire. The screen should be half an inch wider than the base and it should be on both sides so that the lamp looks balanced. If you are confused between two sizes, you always prefer to choose a larger size. The size looks different in the showroom and with you. Preferring the larger one will be helpful.

Place for lamp

Be sure to check the space where you will place the lampshade when choosing the glass floor lamp. If the room is too large and empty, a large floor lamp will support instead of the messy one. The glass floor lamps are available in various lampshades, including empire, drum, oval, square and straight empire shapes. The Empire and the straight lampshades are the classic round shapes. When choosing the right shape, you must take into account both the room and lamp position and also the lamp base. You need to match the bottom of the lamp and the screen to get a cohesive look. The round lampshades are very popular when it comes to glass floor lamps. The square shades are also popular because they can be placed against the wall, which is advantageous in limited space.
