Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you're looking to make a statement or for something more everyday, our range of floor and table lamp shades and ceiling light shades caters to every taste. Big or small, bright or white, there really is something for every light fitting.

How to fit a lamp shade

Fitting a new light shade couldn't be easier, especially with one of our easy-fit shades. Before putting your new shade in place, you'll need to remove the light bulb. This is so that the lamp shade ring can slot neatly onto the light fitting. Many of our modern lamp shades have a reversible gimble - the metal cradle that attaches your shade to its inner ring. This means that your light shade can be fitted onto a table lamp or the hung from the ceiling as a pendant lamp shade when the gimble is reversed. With the shade in place, screw your light bulb back into the fitting. This will keep the shade snug and secured.

How to measure a lamp shade

To find the accurate diameter of a lamp shade, get a tape measure and record its width at the widest point. This will be the measurement given in the product description. It is also a good idea to measure the diameter of the ring to ensure that your new light shade will fit onto your existing fitting.

What size lamp shade do I need?

If you're unsure what size of lamp shade you need, there are a few simple tips to try out. Generally, the diameter of a lamp shade should be double that of the lamp's base if you're measuring up for a table or floor lamp shade. Our collection includes a variety of small table lamp shades, making it easy to find a perfect fit for even the most compact of lamps.

To ensure that the proportions of your lamp look correct, a table lamp shade should be approximately a third of the height of the lamp. For a floor lamp shade, this measurement will be slightly different. Depending on the style, a shade that is between a fifth and a third of the height of the lamp base will look proportionate.
