The first thing to establish is what is chrome? Chrome is created when a thin layer of chromium is electroplated onto a metal object. Electroplating can have the dual purpose of helping to make the metal look more aesthetically pleasing, while also preventing the metal underneath from corroding. As a result, the chrome fixtures of vintage wall lights are actually very tough and scratch-resistant; yet have a nice shiny look that makes these modern chrome wall lights suitable to the contemporary and classical interior design styles. Other popular metals that you will see used on wall lighting fixtures include bronze, brass and nickel. Brass wall lights are very hardy and will last for many years with little chance of corrosion or leaking occurring naturally. However, brass can also require regular polishing to ensure that tarnishing isn't an issue. Nickel offers a soft warmth that chrome does not; but it is also more expensive than chrome. Bronze has a unique aged look that makes it very interesting to the eye, but in a lot of cases it can be used as the metal underneath a chrome coating. In fact, chrome itself has a number of intricacies. You can usually find either wall lighting with a matte chrome finish, or you can find polished chrome wall lights. Matte is the standard chrome look and offers a shine, but polished chrome offers a shine that is much more reflective. Neither is better than the other; it's really up to how these materials fit into the surroundings.
Chrome wall lights contemporary styled are suited to a number of different locations in and around a house including the bathroom and garden. Chrome also fits in with a number of different interior design styles – from contemporary to vintage 1950s. As a material, moreover, it is reasonably priced due to it not being as expensive to produce as wall lighting fixtures that are painted or anodised.
Given how much rain and moisture we experience in the UK climate, chrome is the perfect material for wall lighting outside of a front door, back door or greenhouse. If at any point the chrome begins to flake, peel or chip, it is extremely easy to track down chrome paint to give it a brand new shine – all without corrosion and without the need to replace the fixture. Whether it's for your bathroom or outdoors, you can find chrome lights suited to indoor or outdoor use at The Wall Lighting Company Ltd.
