If you are the type of person who constantly seeks change, a clip-on lamp shade may be the perfect option. Clip-on lamp shades are a wonderful, inexpensive way to update a room. As you do your spring cleaning this year, you may notice that you are feeling tired of the same dull lighting. With clip-on lamp shades, you can instantly and inexpensively change the appearance of your lamps to celebrate a new year.


They can also help you celebrate any occasion. If you frequently throw dinner parties, updated lamp shades can create a delightful new setting that guests will enjoy. Throw on some opaque lampshades to set the room for a cosy, intimate discussion. Alternatively, brighten up the room with a translucent shade that lets plentiful light seep through. Many hosts update their tablecloths and window decorations for every occasion—why not lamp shades too?


Wire Assemblies


Different Types of Lampshades


The two most common lampshade assemblies are Spider and Uno assemblies. Both have multiple spokes that attach to the base of your lamp. They adjust up and down, but they are not designed to be changed frequently. These assemblies are best for permanent home fixtures. The third type of lampshade assembly is the clip-on lamp shade. As the name suggests, clip-on lamp shades are designed to clip directly onto a standard or flame type light bulb. They consist of a wire assembly secured snugly around the light bulb. Clip-on shades come with an adapter that makes each lamp shade easy to remove. They are the most flexible type of assembly. You can easily slip a new lampshade on the clip adapter to update your lamp’s appearance.
