If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
Choosing a lamp for a bedroom involves picking one which may add beauty to the private room. The size of a bedside lamp usually depends on the height of your night table. Yet when your bed is tall, the lamp should not be over than 30 inches. When choosing a lamp for reading, the light should fall just right on the reading material. The base of the lamp must not be flimsy or bulky. There are other things which need to be placed on the table such as the alarm clock or glass of water so an adequate size of lamp base must be chosen. Bedroom lamps must be placed as close as possible to the wall to make room for other items.
Colour choices in lampshades will depend on personal preference, the lamp style and colour, and the decor in the room. Multi-coloured or hand painted lamps should be paired with a muted or single colour shade. For single colour lamps, shades can range from complementary colours to crazy prints.
