Milk Glass Lamp Shade

Buying Guide

Yes! A milk glass lamp shade does give good light; however, it does depend on what kind of light you need in the particular space that you’re lighting. A milk glass shaded lamp tends to give off a lovely soft light, perfect for ambiance and winding down in the evening. It might not be the perfect type of lighting for a more utilitarian office area, or as the only source of light in a large room with no windows. Ultimately, milk glass lamp shades are a great tool to light a room in a specific way, but shouldn’t be the only option you consider based on the purpose of your specific room.

You should use a LED type of bulb with your milk glass lamp shade. LED lights produce a white light that brings out the true color of the lampshade.
