Lampshade Size Guide

Lampshade size guide.

I appreciate that it is difficult decision selecting the right size shade for your home or as a gift especially with such a wide variety of shades available.

Here are some tips to help you select the right shade:

You need to consider the size of your lamp base, you need to get the proportions right, general rule of thumb

  • Height of the shade is generally ¾ height of the base. The bottom of the shade should be wider than the widest part of the base.
  • Floor lamps generally take a 40cm (16”) or a 45cm (18”) shade
  • Consider the base if the base is bold in colour you may want a muted shade to compliment and not clash and vice versa if base is plain and simple you can consider a decorative or bold statement shade.
  • Individuality can often result in unexpected surprises and it reflects your character and a distinctive style in your home. So, don’t be afraid of colour or bold prints
  • Latest Trends, be careful as these can be seasonal & can come and go quite quickly, consider the longevity of the shade and the versatility its great to be able to move the lampshades around your home.


These are only guidelines and occasionally you will come across a lamp that will call for an oversize shade or a smaller than regular size shade.

And always remember…
