Guidance in choosing the right shade carrier
The general rule for choosing a size of shade carrier is that the bottom of the shade carrier should start around 1.5" (38mm) above the bottom of your lampshade, this is to hide the electrical fittings. The easiest way to work this out is to place your lampshade on a flat surface then measure the height of your lampshade from the duplex fitting, straight down to the bottom. Subtract 1.5" (38mm) from this and that should give you the rough size you need. but the ultimate choice is yours and will depend on personal taste and the type of lamp you are fitting the lampshade to. This advice is just offered to help you decide, it is not a guarantee it will look perfect.
If you are still unsure what size you need, please feel free to email us with the dimensions of your lampshade and maybe a picture of the lamp and we will try to advise you on the most appropriate size.
