Ship Lights

Maritime-style is a brilliant character builder. Metal cages protected the glass in rough seas, but they come in handy in family retreats, too, where beach gear and games roll in and out like the tide.

This month’s issue of Coastal Living has a great article, Summerhouse Style Guide, “From pretty painted floors to colorful marine collectibles, here’s a look at some of the classic ingredients of these nostalgic weekend retreats.”


Do you want a Coastal Beach House look?
No matter where your house is, used indoors or out these lights work!

Here is the lighting they recommended.

Cage Wall Sconces

These cage wall sconces are still used in many factories and industrial settings because they are so durable. The bulb is protected by thick glass and a metal cage. They come in wall and ceiling versions.

Bulkheads

Bulkheads also have heavy glass protected by a metal cage. They come in a lot of different sizes and finishes.

Some are more expensive than others. The more expensive ones often have thumbscrews that look great and make it very easy to change the light bulbs. But with as long as the new PL and LED bulbs last, this isn’t a big deal.

These are less sturdy than the bulkheads or cage fixtures. The cage on these is more decorative. It might protect a little, but it is mostly for looks. Sometimes they come with a glass or plastic lens protecting the bulb, but it is not a thick heavy lens like the industrial bulkheads or cage lights.
