The job of a lampshade is to complement the lamp. Rounder lamps require rounded shapes, such as drum, oval, empire, coolie, and bell. For squarer bases, shades need to be more angular, such as square, rectangular, hexagon, and pagoda.
The best step to take first is to determine the function of the room at hand. Does it require a certain amount of light for safety reasons, or will you require enough light to read, and where in the room will these activities occur in the room. What fixed lighting is already built into the space is also something to consider at this point.
If you are trying to add warmth and color to a room, colored and patterned lamp shades are perfect. Many people tend to gravitate towards white or cream colored shades where a colored lamp shade is more appropriate. The warmth is created by the way the shade can disburse the light. But not only is color an important aspect of the perfect lampshades, the shape of the shades is also critical. Having a lamp shade that is either too big or too small for the light fixture can look odd and out of place. It is important that you match shape of the shade with the shape of the floor lamp or table lamp. Don't try and use the same shape on all your lighting fixtures. Pick each one out individually and don't panic if you can't find exactly what you are looking for.
