The Fabric is Worn

If the fabric on your lamp shade is looking worse for the wear, it’s probably time to start looking for a new lamp shade. Over time, fabric lamp shades can fade, become stained, and even tear. The seams can even start to split and come undone. Let our lighting designers know how they can help today.

The Shade is Outdated

If your lamp shade is dating your space rather than spicing it up, it’s likely time to begin looking for a new lamp shade. While some lamp shades are timeless, such as Tiffany shades, others are not so, such as bold brass coupled with an old design. If you’re looking to update your space, start with a new lamp shade.

It’s Time for a Change

Perhaps, you are just ready to change up the look and feel of your space, or your Bozeman, Montana, home is undergoing a renovation. In that case, changing out your lamp shade can be an easy and affordable way to keep most of the lamp’s hardware and just replace the shade. Our wonderful lighting designers can’t wait to help!

The Mood is Not Quite Right

Lighting contributes a lot to the mood of a space, which is why you see ambient lighting in restaurants more so than task lighting. The lamp shade on your lamp should contribute to the mood you are looking to create, not detract from it. If you are noticing your lamp shade is just not vibing with the rest of your space, check out the wide selection of lamp shades at Distinctive Lighting today!
