Homeowners who are looking for an easy way to change the look of their living spaces for the spring should consider the cost-effective option of lamp shades. According to The Oregonian, changing the shape of a lamp shade will allow you to manipulate the light in the room to your advantage and will instantly perk up your décor.

Many interior designers say that if you have a certain decorative accent that you'd like to incorporate into your space, then you should base the entire room around it. You could opt for some brand new shades, or use an old one as a blank canvas for a craft project of your own.

A good rule of thumb when choosing lamp shades is that the shade height should always be one-third of the height of the lamp. This will help to create a uniform appearance and will ensure that you provide warm illumination throughout your space.

Window blinds and shades are also inexpensive options to renew the look of your home. Roman shades could be the perfect complement to your new lamp shades. They come in a wide range of colors and styles, and the textured look will add a timeless aesthetic.
