Glass lamp shades are great decorations for the house. They come in a variety of colors and designs that will aid in the overall look of the house. Since they are made up of glass, the light will reflect from them and create a luminescent appearance. They can be placed either indoors or outdoors depending on what kind of lamp you have.

There are actually many types of glass lamp shades, sometimes called glass shades, that are available on the market. These variants are best placed in certain parts of the house. Here are the different types of glass lamp shades:

1.       Stained glass lampshades- this type of lampshade is normally seen outdoors. They are usually available in an art deco or antique design. Since the glass is stained, the lighting that it provides is soft rather than glaring. The most popular stained glass lampshades are found on Tiffany Lamps.

2.       Chandelier lights- commonly seen in big houses, the chandeliers are usually made of glass to give off lighting reflections. Some chandeliers even have hanging glass reflectors so that the lights will have a wider area of reflection. Chandeliers are mostly classified as hanging lamps.

3.       Torchiere lamp shades- the torchiere lamp shades are the floor length ones that can be seen in bedrooms and in the living room of large houses. The most common designs for this type of lampshade are the glass dishes that reflect the light upward so that it can illuminate to the ceiling. The color of the lights that are usually used are yellow or white.

4.       Cased glass lampshades- the light bulb in this type of lamp is totally encased in glass. That means that instead of reflecting to a certain area, the light glows and give of lighting to its surroundings. Normally you will see two shades of colors: the light inside mixed with the color of the glass gives a different color, while the emitted light from the whole lamp gives off another color. The cased glass lamp shades are normally seen in side tables of the living room or the bedroom. Some people also place these types on their office desks.
