Summary

Finding the best rattan lamp shade can be difficult, because there are so many options to choose from. The paradox of choice is definitely something we all experience on a daily basis, and it’s important that if you are choosing multiple lampshades for your house that you have a think about what you’re looking for in terms of aesthetics and whether it’s in line with your budget.

We discuss some of the things to look out for when purchasing a rattan lamp shade.

Maintenance

We talk about maintenance a lot on the Konservatory site, because it’s something that is crucial to think about when making any purchase. Luckily, rattan lampshades overall are very low maintenance as they require most of the time a quick wipe with a damp cloth, as the material is very durable. In some unique cases there may be a more complicated design, and you need to take that into consideration if low maintenance is your #1 priority. We recommend going for sphere or tear drop style lamp shades if you are looking for low maintenance, as anything with too many edges will take longer to clean.

Shape

The reason why shape is important is because if you have a smaller space the shape of any of your furniture will dictate how that room not only looks, but how it feels. If you’re looking for a lamp shade that is going to look elegant but not overpower a room, you may want to look at a tear drop style as it feels elegant and won’t look odd in a smaller room.

Colour

Picking a colour can be difficult, and we always recommend to devise a ‘colour palette’ of your home when picking any type of furniture. Make a note of the 4 main colours you see throughout your home and ensure that the lamp shade you’re purchasing will complement those colours, and it will look in tune with the rest of your home.

Flexibility

No – we don’t mean if you can bend it. What we mean by flexibility is if you could use that lamp shade throughout the whole home. If you’re looking to buy matching lamp shades to create a continuous flow of style throughout your home, it’s worth finding a design that would work in any room, hallway or space.

FAQ

Are rattan lamp shades fragile?

If they are tightly woven, then they shouldn’t feel or be fragile. A lot of rattan lamp shades will be made with varying material such as plastic and bamboo, which overall are very sturdy. The lamp shades that will be more fragile are the ones that have thinner or spaced out weaving, and you should be careful not to accidentally damage these.

Do the lamp shades come with electrical fittings?

Yes, they will come with the correct fittings but you will have to buy the light bulb yourself. There may be some designs that have less flexibility on fittings than others, so it’s important to check before you buy.

Can the lamp shades fit other pendants?

Some may be able to, but you must check before you buy what the dimensions are and whether it will fit bulbs that you already have.
