When it comes to lighting, there are endless options available to you. From table lamps and floor lamps to chandeliers and pendant lights, there’s a style of lighting that will fit perfectly into your home. But what if you’re not sure where to start? Well, we’ve done the legwork for you by compiling our favorite finishes in every kind of light fixture. Below are different types of fixtures that we think look great in every room of your house—from living rooms and kitchens to bedrooms and bathrooms!

Finish: Brass

Brass is a warm, inviting finish. When you think of the rich look and feel of brass, you can imagine how it would add warmth and texture to your space. It’s an even better choice when paired with other materials like wood and glass.

If you have a style that leans towards mid-century modern, then this may be your best bet. Brass fixtures tend to feature clean lines as well as clean finishes, so they’ll look right at home in any design scheme. If you’re looking for something more modern or contemporary though, there are still plenty of options for you!


Finish: Black

This is one of the most versatile colors in your lineup. Black has been a mainstay in interior design for decades, and it’s no wonder. Black adds drama, making it an excellent choice for most design styles. It can also be paired with nearly any other color without looking out of place.

If you’re looking for something modern or industrial to match with your black decor, think about adding some metallic elements or even wood accents!

Finish: Polished Nickel

A polished nickel finish, though not as common as other finishes, is often considered a safe and sensible option. It looks great with most decor styles and truly shines when paired with bold patterns, colors, and decor pieces.



Finish: White

White is a good choice for any style. If you’re looking for a classic look, white will give your space an elegant and timeless quality. A modern setting could be brightened up with white fixtures; if you want to create a minimalist space, white makes things appear light and airy. For traditional or rustic settings, white adds an element of refinement without being too ornate.


We hope that this blog post has been helpful to you. We know how important it is to have the right lighting in your home, so we wanted to share some of our favorites and why we love them!
