Chandelier Shades

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Outdated rooms in your home can easily become creative and exciting spaces with the implementation of a chandelier. When looking for one for your home, pay attention to wattages, because some chandeliers may generate too much light for your liking. You may become a bit discouraged if the chandelier design you want seems unable to produce the desired effect that you want. But don't despair - chandelier shades can help! With the use of a shade, the light of your chandelier will become softer, adding a warmer ambience to the room.

Some advice to consider before purchasing a chandelier shade, however: Try it before you buy it! You don't want to waste money buying a shade for your chandelier only to discover that it looks terrible. Check with the store from which you are looking to buy to see if they have a return or exchange policy, and keep your receipt in case you need to switch the shade with a different one. If you can obtain a sample shade, try it out on your chandelier before purchasing it.

There are two primary styles to choose from when looking for a chandelier shade. One of them surrounds the whole chandelier, while the other ones are much smaller and cover only one bulb. Think about the style and mood you want to express in your room, and then opt for a shade that compliments it.

Older homes may benefit more from modern stylings than busier, fancier designs. You can also use shades to update and balance a chandelier which may have looked awkward by itself against the backdrop of your room. You can choose from varying shade lengths as well, allowing you to cover all or part of the chandelier.

Full shades tend to block out the chandelier, so that you can only see it if you are standing beneath it. Because of the full coverage, the light emanating from the chandelier will be softened significantly. If you still want to be able to see part of the chandelier and keep some of the illumination, half-shades would be an appropriate choice.

Chandelier shades which cover each individual bulb are more popular than the others. These are used for softening the glow in the room, and can be attached easily by clipping them onto the bulb itself, or the fixture surrounding the bulb. Some shades are so unique and dramatic that people may assume you've simply installed a brand-new chandelier.

These shades are commonplace in fancier restaurants, and you may have been looking right at them and not even known that's what they were! Many times they are used to maintain ambience while dining, and offer just enough light to comfortably view the menus.
