How to measure a Lampshade
Deciphering lampshade measurements can be a little tricky but the system can be beaten – just arm yourself with a measuring tape (or ruler) and a little know-how…
A. Top diameter – measure straight across the top of the lampshade
B. Bottom/ Base diameter – measure straight across the bottom of the lampshade
C. Vertical slant – measure straight along the slant (side) of the lampshade
D. Height – measure straight up from bottom to top. *The easiest way to take this measurement is by placing a straight sided ruler inside the shade
That’s your lampshade good and measured. Simple!
