During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
Those little touches are what can really make or break a room. When thinking about shopping for that replacement lamp shade, make sure you keep in mind the decor your room has at the moment. You certainly would not want to get a country lamp shade when your room is more techno or modern looking.
How to Make Victorian Lamp Shades
Preventing Damage: Ensure that the operating voltage of your plug in hanging lamp is in the recommended range. Very high voltages will overdrive your lighting system. Although it provides more brightness, it actually shortens the lamp's lifespan overall. Going overboard by even 1 volt can reduce the lifespan of your hanging ceiling lamp by half.
There are many different types of materials that are now being used for the replacement lamp shade so you may want to take a close look at those as well. The more options you have and the more you look at, the better your decision on a replacement lamp shade will be. Just keep an open mind and see what you can come up with for your lamp.
