When deciding on brightness, people need to figure out what the primary purpose of the lamp will be. This could be mood lighting, reading, decoration, or safety. For decorative lighting, an opaque fabric shade can be chosen. It illuminates the space from ceiling to floor. For reading and other tasks, a translucent lampshade will diffuse light. High quality paper or fabric shades are ideal.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
For table lamps, a lampshade should be two thirds the height of the base. For floor lamps, follow a four to one ratio. The widest part of the shade should be half an inch wider than the widest part of the base on each side. It should modestly cover the lamps' harp and bulb socket.
