How to Recover a Lampshade Using a Shade Cover

Dress a shade 

lampshade cover steps


Simply purchase a new shade-on cover in an exciting fabric and at a size that matches your existing lampshade, slip it over the shade and you're done! Updating your room’s décor, renewing an old lampshade, or providing a burst of color takes only minutes when you use a Shade Cover.

They are form fitting, removable and stretch to fit most lampshade sizes. They give your lamp and your room a whole new look, it is like getting a whole new lamp! Shade Covers also protect brand new lampshades and keep them fresh for years to come.

How do I pick the correct size?


1) Choose from either cone or drum shape to match your existing lamp shade:


Cone Shape


Drum Shape



2) Measure your shade. There are three dimensions you will need:

      a) Top Dimension - measure across the top of your shade.

      b) Bottom Dimension - measure across the bottom of your shade.

      c) Height or Slant – measure from top to bottom of shade along the outside edge
          in a straight line.



3) Shade Covers are sized Small, Medium and Large. Once you have your shade measurements, use the chart below to select the closest size and shape:

CONE SHAPE

TopBottomHeight
Small4-6"10-12"8-10"
Medium6-9"14-17"10-12"
Large8-11"15-18"13-15"

DRUM SHAPE

TopBottomHeight
Small6-8"6-8"6-8"
Medium10-14"10-14"8-10"
Large12-15"12-15"10-12"



For example:
You have a drum shaped shade and it's measurements are 10" across the top, 12" across the bottom and 11" slant height. Look at the sizing chart and you will see the drum size you need is "medium".




4) Now pick the style you would like and order the correct Shade Cover shape & size:

How do I use my Shade Cover?


Installing a Shade Cover is easy as putting on a T-Shirt. Remove the shade from your lamp base. Pull the stretchable Shade Cover over the top of the shade pulling down until it is securely in place. Reinstall the shade on your lamp. Instructional video


How do I keep my Shade Cover looking nice?


Lampshade Shade Covers are extremely durable and go on and off with ease. They can be vacuumed in place, taken off and shaken and are machine washable in cold water, NO BLEACH. Tumble dry on low heat and replace on shade.
