Colourful lampshades

Put Your Shades On

Summer is finally here! So, say hello to the sun, get the BBQ going and put your feet up, with a nice ice-cold drink. Whilst we love to do all of that too, our favourite thing to do during Summer, at Lighting R Us, is update our shades. Wait… did you think we meant these? 🕶

We absolutely love Summer in the lighting industry, as it’s all about bright and bold colours. It means we can bring back those items we have been itching to fish out all year! Our favourite? Lampshades! The best thing about lampshades, is that they can make any table lamp look fresh and brand-new. It’s a great money-saving tactic too, especially if you are one to change your home décor frequently. You want to change the colour of your bedroom and purchase new bedding, but your current bedside lamps won’t match? No problem, buy some lampshades to match the colour-scheme and voila! We know table lamps can be expensive, and lampshades are mostly a fraction of that cost. It’s a no-brainer if you ask us

Lighting brand Oaks Lighting have taken steps to branch out with colour across their lighting ranges. Among many things, Oaks are known for their variety, also offering great value and quality. The best-selling Madison range is a prime example of what summer is all about when it comes to lighting. Coming in 10 different colours, there’s one to suit every room! Well, expect the same for their fabulous lampshades! We’d say you are, without a doubt, spoilt for choice. Look below for some inspiration.
