Our advice Buying Guide

Glass student lamp shades come with an unmistakable design. They are bold and impactful. A glass student lamp shade also serves a useful function of providing the appropriate amount of light for reading and/or studying.

These days, glass student lamp shades have blossomed into many different variations. The abundance of choices is always a good thing, but it also comes with a downside: picking the right one can be confusing. To help you with that, this article is going to be a buying guide.

How to select the right size shade for a glass student lamp?

Lamp shades work similar to hats. If a shade is too large or too small, it will look silly. To help you find the right size, below are a few rules of thumbs to keep in mind.

  • Take note of the proportions. The lamp shade's length should be around three-fourths of the lamp's base.
  • The width of the lamp should be roughly the same as the height of the base. If following this rule of thumb results in an abnormally wide lamp shade, then you can find something smaller. Just be sure that the width of the lamp shade is at least half an inch wider than the lamp base width.
  • If you have a hard time deciding between two lamp sizes, then it's better to err on the side of the larger one.
  • Keep in mind that these are just rule of thumbs. Thus, it's okay to break them if it "feels" right.

When choosing the right lampshade size, there are two things you need to consider. The first one is the size of the lamp's base, which was covered above. The other thing to take note of is the room itself.

Your primary concern is the size of the room where you will be placing the glass lamp shade. If the size of the room is small, then don't go for a big shade as it may cramp up the room.

On the other hand, if the room is big, then don't pick something that is too small as it will make the room feel bare.

How pick the color for a glass student lamp shade?

Glass student lamp shades come in many different colors. You can start by deciding if you want white or colored.

If your goal is to get the maximum amount of light and you have little care for aesthetic value, then your best option is the white-colored shade. If white is too dull for you, then you can pick a colored one.

When it comes to picking the right color, take a cue from the style of the room. In interior design, specific styles have their own color signature. For example, Scandinavian is fond of shades of gray. Rustic or farm-inspired tends to feature shades of brown.

Once you know the interior design style of the room, it's just a matter of sticking to the color shades that are associated with the room's theme.

So, that's it for now. You can add more filters to narrow down your choices further. As of the moment, you can start with the key points above.
