Finally we come to the Accent Lighting.Few shades are used in this category of lighting because their purpose is to beam light onto a feature, a counter top, any point of interest you want to draw attention to. Most accent light is used for under the cabinet lighting, directed track lighting over fireplaces or attached to a picture frame, positioned to illuminate the beauty of the piece.
Fabric lamp shades do have different practical uses. For example if one wants to read a book by the bed then the shade should allow enough light so that the text can be read. Certain shades which are used only for decorative purposes do not shine enough light for reading. So before purchase consider how you want to use it. Burgundy pattern shades are better suited for decorative purposes.
Lamp Shades are an amazing interior design tool which and with a little thought can change the look of any room. It may be a simple matter of physically changing the shade or the more creative option of designing one your self.

Lamp shades are quite easy to maintain. Before attempting to clean your lamp and its shade, be sure to unplug the cord first. Take off the shade from the lamp. If it is made of fabric, use detergent and warm water to wash it (check if the fabric is color-safe). Just dip the shade in sudsy water and then rinse in clean water. Use mild detergents only; dish-washing liquids are fine. The cloth will stretch and sag while wet. It should tighten up again when it gets dry. To dry, hang over a bathtub or hang from an outdoor clothesline. You can also pat dry with a thick bath towel until it is almost dry and put it back over your lamp. The heat from the bulb will finish drying it out. If you are cleaning a plastic, plastic-coated, laminated, parchment or fiberglass shaded, merely wipe it with a lathered up cloth or sponge. Rinse with a clean damp cloth and then wipe dry.
