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.
If you will separate them in terms of their design will be easy just by looking at them. But lamp shades may also be differentiated depending on how they light a specific room. For instance, task lighting can be made by a clear glass globe which will let almost the whole light pass through. On the other end, ambient lighting will prove to add more mood rather than brightness. Accordion lanterns made of colorful mulberry paper that generally cast a pinkish glow, on the other hand, will create peaceful surroundings.
The more ornate the lamp, the simpler the shade should be and vice versa. Pleated shades look more traditional while flat shades work with almost any decor. However, pleated shades are hard to keep dusted, so smooth shades are an optimum choice.
