How to Pick the perfect Size of Shade for your Lamp
For table lamps, the height should be approximately 60% and 80% of the height of the lamp base. For example, a table lamp base that’s 20 inches high should have a lampshade between 12 and 16 inches in height.
For floor lamps, the height of the shade should be between 30% and 50% of the height of the lamp base. For example, a floor lamp base that’s 60 inches high should have a lampshade between 18 and 30 inches in height.
Your lampshade should be at least 2x wider than the widest part of the base. Calculate this by measuring the widest part of your lamp base and multiplying it by two.
Note: If your lampshade is tapered, the bottom of the shade follows this criteria.
In addition, the diameter of the shade (or bottom of the shade, if it’s tapered) should not be greater than the height of the lamp body, i.e. from the bottom of the lamp base to the bottom of the electrical socket.
