Need help deciding floor lamp shade size (cross post)

8 years ago

Hope it's okay, I'm cross posting this from the Lighting Forum because that doesn't get much traffic.

I'm looking at this floor lamp. I can get it in either 12" or 14" diffuser sizes and correspondingly sized shades. The wattage allowed is the same for both. Does it make a difference regarding how much light is thrown out into the room which size I get? My room is 160 sq ft area with 7' ceilings (not high). Aside from looks, is there any difference?

I'm getting the parchment shade.
