Basic Hardbacked Lamp Shade Shapes:
How to Measure a Shade When shopping for new lamp shades on our site, you’ll see shades listed with different measurements. These measurements are always listed the same way: (a) the distance in inches across the top (could be one measurement if round or square, or two measurements if oval or rectangular), (b) across the bottom, and (c) the vertical slant (or the vertical height if applicable). If you are replacing an existing shade, measure the old shade using this same method with a ruler or retractable tape measure.
Here are the shade measurements you’ll need:
A – Measure the top diameter.
B – Measure the bottom diameter.
C – Measure the vertical slant (down the flat side on Squares, Ovals and Rectangles).
