Floor Lamps by Finish or Material 

Brass has been around for many years and is a good material for a wide range of styles 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.


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 more lively accent whereas matte finishes add a more calm accent. 

Let’s talk about light fixture finishes, various finishes, and how to choose when designing your next lighting upgrade.

It’s important to think ahead, and not just what “looks good”. When thinking about lighting, the finish is as important as the type of light fixture. Your main goal is to impress! And to make your home inviting, right?


Designer fixtures offer many finish options that are categorized into three categories:

  • Wood and/or natural materials
  • Metals
  • Painted or enamel surfaces


Go Natural With Wood

Metallic surfaces offer many beautiful finish options, including the elegance of brushed nickel, polished chrome, or or the richness of oil-rubbed bronze floor lamps. Lighting fixtures with polished finishes add a brightness to any space, and brushed or rubbed finishes provide soft color and warm detail. Metal surfaces are durable, yet some materials like  nickel and brass may need polishing from time to time. Some metal light fixtures have a lacquered finish and need very little maintenance.


Painted or Enameled Finishes Blend In

Floor lamp finishes

Enameled and painted light fixtures and floor lamps help you achieve several purposes. They coordinate well with ceilings and floors to provide great illumination without the fixture being too obvious.

Light Fixture Finishes For Different Spaces

Different spaces in and  around your home have different purposes, so the finish, and color tone of your lighting fixtures finishes are important. Dining rooms, living rooms, patios and decks, provide great space for relaxing or entertainment, so think outside the box a little with your lighting designs. 

Lighting Up The Bedroom

There’s no other space more personal than the bedroom. The type of  floor lamp or light fixture finish chosen should reflect your best tastes. Consider oil rubbed bronze or antiqued copper which are warm metals, combine that with a Victorian table lamp, adding a romantic appeal. Materials such as wood or  natural stone create a relaxing look and feel that’s ideal for a restful oasis. When you choose lighting fixtures for a child’s bedroom ceiling lighting provide great ambient light. A colorful fixture with a colorful coordinated enamel shade is a fun way to decorate a child’s room, and ceiling lights keep hot bulbs out of reach from curious kids.

Lighting Up Your Dining Room and Living Rooms

Lighting up these important rooms with beautiful lighting fixtures that impress and enhance the room’s decor. Floor lamps and table lamps finished in polished or brushed  metal add an impressive richness and create a contrast with the wooden accent pieces and upholstered furniture. Add ambient lighting to these areas using enameled or painted ceiling fixtures that blend in with the background. A cut glass or polished metal fixture hanging over the dining room table focuses attention on the gorgeous central lighting feature.


Finishes do a lot of things for a room; they can add a smooth shine or interesting texture, they can give the room a contemporary or traditional look or a rustic look and feel.  A very shiny finish like chrome or a polished finish on a floor lamp can add a light reflection and actually brightens a space even when the lamp isn’t turned on. Use a floor lamp with an earthy bronze or coppery finish or a rough plaster finish for an Old World look, or a very shiny glossy finish for a sleek modern style room. Gold or brass has traditionally been the finishes of choice for an elegant look but today nickel is also considered very elegant.

Floor Lamp Materials and Finishes Evoke Style

Which material you choose depends on your other furniture and the style of your room. If you have mostly light woods in a contemporary room you might want to add a flash of brass or nickel to jazz things up a little  – or you might want to keep your metals uniform and go with a metal you are already using.
