3 Easy And Interesting DIY Lampshades To Make For Your Home

Posted: January 29, 2016

Strategically placed lights and lamps can really add to the atmosphere in your home. Here are 3 unique ways to decorate your home with these DIY lampshades.

I did not know until recently that lamps and lampshades are priced so exorbitantly! However, irrespective of the prices, my love for lamps is not going to decrease! After all, how can one appreciate the beauty of a home’s interiors, if not for proper lighting? Though concealed rights which sit conveniently in your false ceiling give the required amount of lighting, lampshades increase the aesthetic beauty of a room.

In case you are planning to go for concealed lighting for most part of the house, don’t forget to add those elements of drop lamps at specific points. If not for main lighting, they can at least be used as mood lighting which is enough for you to access a space comfortably. Once the lamps are on, you don’t need to switch on the main lighting unless you are reading, writing or working on some intricate crafts. Mood lighting is always perfect to get the evening conversations going!

So how do you do it without spending much? Check out these cool ideas to make your own lampshades and make your rooms come to life! Let us look at 3 such DIY videos now!
