Diffusing lamp shades are helpful since they can create a soft atmosphere similar to indirect lighting on nearly any light fixture. Look for any fixture with a semi-opaque shade to get the diffused effect. Diffusing shades are also a good way to incorporate color into your lights. A rich red shade will have a warm, cozy glow while a soft blue will feel serene and spa-like.
Tip: To maintain versatility, go for a neutral lampshade and add color-changing LED smart bulbs that are controlled via a smartphone, wireless dimmer switch or a smart voice assistant. With Philips Hue you can also set your smart bulbs to match your sleep schedules.
