One easy and affordable way to change up the look of any room in your home is by simply switching out (or adding in) a lamp shade. Lamp shades come in a slew of shapes, styles, and colors and we have narrowed down some of the best options that will keep your space looking clean, neat and somewhat unobtrusive.

Included are a couple of white and “antique” white options that you can get in pleated or linen-type materials that are classic, always in style and would look great in any room. These lamp shade options come in sets of two and can be easily placed on a table or standing lamp.

These shades are light enough in color to lighten and brighten any room and will fit in with any modern, contemporary or classicly styled environment.
