Once you find the perfect lampshade, you want to get as much use out of it as possible. With the proper care, you can extend the life of your lampshade and continue to enjoy it for many years. The following tips help you care for your shades and keep them in their original condition:
- Dust Regularly
Not only can dust affect the condition of your lampshade, but it can also negatively impact the indoor air quality of your home. At least once a week, use a duster or a lint roller to remove the tiny particles of dust that have accumulated on your shade. Keeping up with your dusting will drastically improve the aesthetic appeal of your shades.
- Clean Thoroughly
It is just as important to clean your shades as it is to dust them. Whether they are custom or ready-made lampshades, find the best method of cleaning for your particular shade. Since they come in a variety of materials, it is important to use the right cleaning technique for each individual shade. Many fabric shades, for example, can be cleaned with dishwashing detergent mixed with water. Talk to the lampshade experts about the best methods for cleaning when you purchase your shade.
- Change Periodically
The beauty of buying custom-made lampshades is that you have a few great options to periodically change up your décor. Give some of your lampshades a rest by changing them out with others. If you alternate between a few lampshades, you will never get bored with your décor and all of your beautiful shades will last much longer.
