Square pendant light shades come with a standard sized fitting ring, for standard pendant lights. Putting your lamp shade up is simple to do, and won't take very long at all.
Step 1: Prepare
Before you start, make sure that your light is off - if you can it's best to turn off the electric at the main fuse box. Then just remove the light bulb from your pendant fitting.
Step 2: Remove bottom
After that you'll need to unscrew the bottom of the fitting. Most pendant lights will have a black, tabbed ring to make this easy to find and once you've got it all you need to do is twist - for pendants that don't have a black ring, the line where the two parts split should be easy to find if you look closely. When the bottom part is completely unscrewed you will be able to see the exposed thread underneath.
Step 3: Install lampshade
Now simply put your lampshade over the exposed thread on the fitting and then put the bottom part back on again. The lampshade should now be held in place.
Step 4: Test
Last but not least, put the bulb back in, switch your electrics back on, and try the light - it's that easy.
Your shade will come with an adaptor that is removable so that you can adjust the size of the fitting ring.
To give your custom ceiling lights an authentic feel we use a Stiff Translucent textile which is ever so slightly textured. You can choose whether to have the painted frame with the fitting located at the top or the bottom of the shade, and it will be backed with a fire rated inner lining. Your custom design will be printed in full colour all the way up to the edges of the frame so there won't be any gaps, unless you have intentionally put them in.
As is the case with many of our products, these custom pendant light shades are part of our quantity discount scheme. If you order more than one at the same time, not only can you create beautiful custom hanging lights for more rooms in your home, but you can take advantage of a lower price as well.
For Your Safety: Inner layer is a BS standard fire rated material - BS EN 60598 - 1:2008 650 Glow wire test (clause 13.3.2) only. For the smaller sizes - 20cm round and oval - the maximum wattage is the 40w bulb. For all other sizes, use 60w-100w bulbs but we recommend cool energy saving bulbs for all our lampshades.
If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.
Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.
Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.
Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.
Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.
Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
The textile we use is Stiff Translucent and slightly textured for an authentic feel. Backed with a fire rated inner lining, the shade is then attached to a white painted metal frame that will either sit at the top or bottom depending on which style you've chosen.
Handmade to order by our team of skilled craftspeople, your photo lamp shade is truly one of a kind. Printed using our specialist process, the colours and quality of the print won't peel over time. Your shade will come with a removable adaptor to alter the size of the fitting ring.
Consider using bigger images so that they still look stunning even from a distance. As the square lampshades come with four sides that can be customised separately, you could try using a different theme for each side. For example, you could use a photo (or a photo collage) for each of the four seasons, or a side for each family member, to create a personal touch. If you want to use the same design on all four sides, there is a handy "Copy Side" button built into our online design tool.
The custom made lampshades are hand made to order, and as such, no two are ever the same. This means that they are perfect for all over the house, however, we think that the contemporary square design looks amazing in living spaces such as living rooms and conservatories as it gives the room a really modern feel to it.
