Brass is popular and has been around forever, and is a great material for a wide range of dstyles from traditional to modern. Chrome and nickel have a sleek, clean, shiny look that is perfect for modern and contemporary style rooms. Wood floor lamps are warm and inviting; these are natural for the more traditional styles, contemporary or even coastal. The newer fabric and glass lamps generally go better with more contemporary or modern styles.
THE FINISH MATTERS
Once you’ve decided on the right style – it’s time to choose a finish. Floor lamps come in various colors but also various finishes. Floor lamp finishes include brass, bronze, copper, wood, chrome, nickel, to name a few. And, whether the finish is glossy or matte that also makes a difference. Gloss finishes add a livelier accent whereas matte finishes add a calmer accent.
Light fixture finishes have various finishes, and we show you how to choose the right one when embarking on your next lighting upgrade. Think ahead, not just what “looks good”. You should think seriously about the finish because it is as important as the type of light fixture. Your main objective is to impress! And to make your home as inviting as possible, right?
Designer fixtures will offer many types of finishes that come in three categories:
- Wood and/or natural materials
- Painted or enamel surfaces
Go Wood, Go Natural
Wood as well as other natural materials will offer a more calm appearance – that’s just right for a more casual decor. Most natural materials will have warmer hue that are lovely for casual living areas. Wood and Stone also have variations that will add an appealing visual to ceiling fixtures or floor lamps.
Metal surfaces will offer various beautiful finish options, including the posh-ness of brushed nickel, polished chrome, or the opulence of oil-rubbed bronze floor lamps. Lighting fixtures with a polished finish will add a bright spot to any space, and brushed or rubbed finishes provide a more warm detail. Metal materials are durable, although some materials like brass and nickel may need polished every now and then. Some light fixtures made from metal have a lacquer finish and need less maintenance.
Painted or Enameled Finishes Blend In
Enameled or painted floor lamps and light fixtures achieve different purposes. They go well with floors and ceilings that provide great illumination without the fixture being too noticeable.
Light Fixture Finishes For Different Spaces
Different rooms around your home will have different purposes, so the color tone and the finish of your lighting fixture is important. Living rooms, dining rooms, patios and decks, provide areas for relaxing or entertainment, so think a little more about your lighting designs.
Lighting Up The Bedroom
There’s no area more personal than your bedroom. The types of finish you choose for floor lamps or light fixtures should reflect your personal tastes. Oil rubbed bronze or antiqued copper are warmer metals, combined with a Victorian table lamp, will add a romantic appeal. Materials like wood or stone will create a relaxing feel and look that’s ideal for a cozy oasis. Choose ceiling lighting for a child’s bedroom and you’ll provide great ambient light. A bright colored fixture with a color coordinated enamel shade is a great way to decorate a child’s room, and those ceiling lights will keep those hot bulbs out of reach from those curious kids.
Lighting Up Your Dining Room and Living Rooms
Lighting up your rooms with beautiful fixtures that are designed to impress and enhance your room’s decor. Table lamps and Floor lamps finished in brushed or polished metal add glamour by creating a nice contrast with wooden accent pieces and upholstered furniture. Add ambient light to these areas using painted or enameled ceiling fixtures that will blend in with the background. Polished metal fixture or cut glass installed over your dining room table will focus attention on the beautiful central lighting feature.
FINISHES AND MATERIALS EVOKE STYLE
Finishes make all the difference; they add an interesting texture or smooth shine; they can provide the room a traditional or contemporary or a rustic look and feel. A shiny polished finish like chrome on a floor lamp can add a reflection and brighten a space a little more, even when the lamp isn’t on. Buy a floor lamp with earthy bronze or a copper finish or rough plaster finish which provides an Old World look, or go for that shiny gloss finish for a more sleek and modern style room. Brass or Gold or has traditionally been a go to finish for a more elegant look, but these days nickel is also considered more elegant.
Floor Lamp Materials and Finishes Evoke Style
The fixture material you choose should depend on the other furniture and style of your room. If you have plenty of light woods in a contemporary style room you may want to add a bit of brass or nickel to liven things up a little – or you may want to keep the metals similar and go with a metal you are already using.
