So you want to replace the shades on your chandelier or you want to make a chandelier from scratch?

Here's our advice on how to size the shades! 

  • use fabric shades
  • use torpedo style fitters
  • use torpedo style  bulbes
  • select shades based on the bottom diameter of the shade
  • the shade's bottom diameter should be the same length as the candle sleeve. (ex: for a 4" candlesleeve use a shade with a 4" bottom diameter)

That's all! I hope this helped. It's short but this is usually the math.
