If you are looking for a way to brighten up a room and improve your light fixtures, glass shades could be exactly what you are looking for. Buying some stylish lamp shades for a room is a fast and convenient way to update your fittings.
With many glass lamp shades available, there is no need to remove and replace the existing light fixtures. You just have to remove the existing lampshade and replace it with your new one. Provided you are good on a ladder and have someone to hold it for you while you are up there, this is a job that you can easily do yourself. If you were to choose to replace the entire fixture, you would need to call in an electrician to do it for you.
There are many different types of glass finish available. This allows you to decide on the kind of illumination you want to have cast in your room to achieve either a muted or bright effect. Clear or acid etched glass allows most light through, whereas opaque or Alabaster glass blocks some of it, creating a softer and more diffused effect. You just need to decide how brightly you want your room lit and make your choice of shade accordingly.
