There are different shapes available such as oval or drum and also hexagonal, bell or some hybrid style. They can be hard or soft as well.

Drum shade is also found more in pendant lights and on chandeliers. This is more popular as they feature clean lines, with unique schemes. There are other shades that also resemble the drum shades to a great extent and they are empire, floor-lamp or coolie. However, even with drum shade in the ceiling light you must consider the material type used.

Consider the space of your room available before deciding on the drum ceiling light. A big room looks good to hang such lights. Also take into consideration the height of the room and the shade so that it conceals the bulb. The base and the fixture should be compatible.
