Designed to diffuse the glare of a naked light bulb, light shades are available from Lights2Go in a wide range of colours, fabrics and styles to become a key element of your decor. While often chosen for their decorative qualities, the level of transparency is also important as this dictates how the light disperses through the room. There are different types of shades available including drum light shades which are cylinder shaped and usually open at the top and bottom, throw light upwards and downwards to offer the brightest option for ceiling lights. Cone shades are similar to drum shades but with a tapered shape. Cone shades become 'uplighters' when inverted, casting light towards the ceiling to reduce shadow and glare. Uplighters should be avoided in rooms with low ceilings, or exposed beams. Pendant shades feature a more sculpted body and designed to create specific lighting effects through their shape, pendants fit onto ceiling fittings to deliver a more focussed light source. Lights2Go offers lampshades in several colours and styles and sizes from small candle shades to clip onto bulbs up to larger shades to fit onto standard lamps.
