It can be very difficult to find a high quality coastal ceiling light. Not only does this type of light need to provide a good amount of light output to illuminate an area, but it also needs to be able to withstand the harsh elements that comes with coastal & exposed environments. At Lightahome, we have been working with manufacturers to develop a range of coastal lights and we will only include a light to our coastal range if it has been thoroughly tested with such harsh elements. Our coastal ceiling lights have been salt water tested and are mostly made from solid brass. Over time this will acquire a natural patina, adding character to the ceiling light, however this can be polished back. As with our entire coastal lights range, we suggest rinsing down with fresh water occasionally to remove any salt deposits from the environment.
