The Art of Personalization: Creating Your Custom Lampshades

The trend of personalizing interior spaces has seen a significant rise, with custom lampshades becoming a focal point for designers and homeowners alike. Known in the industry as "customers' own material" (COM) shades, these unique creations allow for an unparalleled level of personalization in home decor. But while the idea of custom lampshades tailored to individual tastes is exciting, the process has traditionally been anything but straightforward. It is often described as tedious, confusing, and time-consuming.

Simplifying the Customization Process

At Lux Lampshades, we've recognized the need for a streamlined approach to creating custom lampshades. Our mission is to demystify and simplify the process, making it accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Here’s a step-by-step guide to placing your order, designed to take the hassle out of customization:

Step 1: Select the Bottom Diameter of Your Shade

Start by choosing the ideal size for your space. The bottom diameter of your shade sets the stage for the overall dimensions and ensures that the lampshade will fit perfectly in its intended spot.

Step 2: Provide Full Size Details

Once you've selected the diameter, type the full size of the shade into the comment box on our order form. Before we start production, we'll touch base to confirm all the details of your order, so as to capture your vision accurately.

Step 3: Place Your Order and Await Your Kit

After placing your order, keep an eye out for a special package from Lux Lampshades. Inside, you’ll find a unique shipping bag complete with a prepaid shipping label. This is where you'll place your chosen fabric and any additional trims you'd like to include in your design.

Step 4: Fill Out the COM Form

Complete the COM form included in your kit. This form is crucial as it contains specific instructions and preferences for your custom shade. Place this form in the bag along with your material.

Step 5: Ship Your Materials

Take your packed bag to a shipping carrier, typically UPS or FedEx. The prepaid shipping label makes this step hassle-free.

Final Step: Relax and Let Lux Handle the Rest

Once we receive your materials, the rest is in our capable hands. We pride ourselves on meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail, ensuring that your custom lampshade is nothing short of perfect.

Elevating Your Space with Custom Shades

The ability to use your own material for lampshades opens up a world of design possibilities. Whether it's a fabric that matches your curtains or a unique pattern that you've fallen in love with, COM shades allow for a level of coordination and customization in interior design that off-the-shelf options simply can't match. We are committed to turning your fabric into a statement piece that not only lights up your room but also showcases your personal style.

Unleashing Creativity with Ease

The journey to creating your custom lampshade should be as enjoyable as the outcome. To this end, we've fine-tuned the process to ensure that your experience is smooth and straightforward, from the moment you select your fabric to the unveiling of your finished shade. Custom lampshades offer a unique opportunity to infuse your space with a touch of personal flair, and we're here to make that possibility a reality for every customer.
