When you’re looking to make a style statement with a traditional style light fitting or with a sleek complementary accent to a room, gold and brass ceiling lights can often be the answer. Gold and brass are an elegant choice of material that can suit both classic and modern décor styling, and both gold and brass ceiling lights are suitable for nearly every room in the home – as long as you choose the right style to match the décor.
Aren’t gold and brass ceiling lights the same thing?
While gold and brass are both metallic finishes that can add warmth and sophistication to any space, there are actually several differences between the two. Gold is naturally occurring element with a distinctive yellow hue, while brass is an alloy made primarily of copper and zinc, which can be polished to a golden shine.
When it comes to gold, there are many shades to consider beyond bright and shiny yellow gold. Brushed gold, for example, offers a matte effect that is both modern and sophisticated, while antique gold can create a vintage-inspired look that is rich and luxurious. There are also rose gold ceiling lights that feature a slightly pink-toned glow, for a soft, feminine light.
Similarly, brass offers a range of finishes to suit your design preferences. Polished brass, for example, can add a timeless, classic look to a room, while satin brass has a subtler, more understated effect that is perfect for contemporary interiors. Matte or brushed brass can look softer, and more textured, while antique brass creates a vintage feel that is both elegant and charming.
No matter what your preferred finish or style may be, all gold and brass ceiling lights share the benefit of helping to bounce light around the room without glare, so they’re perfect for brightening darker spaces, and they are warm and inviting.
Which rooms can gold and brass ceiling lights be used in?
Gold and brass ceiling lights can be used in all types of rooms throughout the home, adding glamour and sophistication to a home. In bedrooms, gold or brass pendant lights can create a warm and inviting ambiance, while a gold chandelier with sparkling crystals can serve as a stunning centrepiece in a dining room or living room. For traditional or vintage-inspired spaces, lantern-shaped brass ceiling lights look timeless and elegant, and will simply never go out of style.
Gold and brass ceiling lights can also be used to enhance the décor of rooms with specific themes or styles. For example, rooms with nautical themes, such as bathrooms or beach houses, can be lifted further with polished brass ceiling lights that evoke the look of classic marine hardware. Don’t forget, when shopping for brass or gold ceiling lights for bathrooms, check the safety rating and ensure that the fixtures are designed to be used in damp environments.
The versatility and style of gold and brass ceiling lights mean that they remain popular for any room in the home. Whether you’re looking for a bold statement piece or a subtle accent, our selection of gold and brass ceiling lights will almost certainly have the type of lighting you’re looking for.
What style of décor do gold and brass ceiling lights work with?
Gold and brass ceiling lights can complement a range of interior design styles. In traditional settings, they can add opulence and glamour, while in modern spaces, they can be a bold contrast against a minimalist backdrop.
For a classic look, pair gold or brass ceiling lights with rich, warm colours and sumptuous textures like velvet, silk, or brocade. Ornate furnishings and decorative accents like candles, mirrors, and artwork can also enhance the elegant feel in the room.
In a modern space, try pairing gold or brass ceiling lights with cool, neutral colours like white, grey, or black – the contrast between the warm metal tones and the cool palette can be striking visually. Similarly, incorporating clean lined furniture, abstract art, and geometric patterns can help to balance the ornate qualities of the gold or brass lighting fixtures.
The key to incorporating gold or brass ceiling lights into any décor style is to create a cohesive look that balances the light fixtures with other elements in the room. By considering the overall style and colour palette of your space, you can choose gold or brass ceiling lights that complement your décor and create a harmonious, inviting ambiance.

Are there brass and gold ceiling lights with LEDs?
Yes, there are many brass and gold ceiling lights that incorporate LED technology. In fact, LED lighting has become the most popular type of lighting in recent years due to its energy efficiency and long lifespan.
LEDs are often integrated into the design of modern ceiling lights, including those made with gold and brass finishes. Many of these fixtures are designed to showcase the unique qualities of LED lighting, such as its ability to produce bright, even illumination without generating excessive heat or consuming large amounts of energy.
Some LED gold and brass ceiling lights feature built-in dimmer switches, allowing you to adjust the brightness and intensity of the light to suit your needs. Some types of LED lighting and bulbs can be customised with colour temperature options, allowing you to choose between warm or cool lighting depending on your preferences.
If you’re interested in incorporating gold or brass ceiling lights into your space but also want the benefits of energy-efficient LED lighting, you’ll be pleased to know that there are many options available to suit your needs.
What are the benefits of using LEDs?
LEDs (light-emitting diodes) offer a range of benefits over traditional lighting technologies. In terms of style, LEDs can be integrated into intricate lighting designs, creating stunning visual effects that were once impossible with older technologies. Many modern gold and brass ceiling lights feature integrated LED strips or arrays that allow for precise control over the direction and intensity of the light, resulting in dramatic, sculptural effects.
In addition to their style benefits, LED lighting is also highly versatile in terms of colour temperature and brightness. Decorative LED bulbs, for example, can be found in a range of styles and shapes, including vintage-inspired designs and playful, colourful options. These bulbs can be used to add an additional touch of style to your lighting scheme, or to create a dramatic focal point in your space.
Beyond their style benefits, LED lighting is also highly energy-efficient, using up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. This not only saves you money on your energy bills, but also reduces your carbon footprint. LED bulbs also have a much longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, often lasting for tens of thousands of hours before needing to be replaced. This means you’ll spend less time and money on maintenance, and can enjoy your beautiful gold or brass ceiling lights for years to come.
Can I get brass and gold ceiling lights that are dimmable?
Yes, there are many brass and gold ceiling lights that are dimmable, allowing you to adjust the brightness and mood of your space as needed. Traditional dimmer switches can be used to control the level of light output from the ceiling light, providing a versatile and customisable lighting solution.
However, smart lighting has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its added functionality and convenience. With smart lighting, you can control your ceiling lights remotely from a smartphone or tablet, adjust the brightness or colour temperature of the light, and even schedule lights to turn on or off automatically based on your preferences.
Smart lighting systems also offer a range of features beyond simple dimming, including the ability to create custom lighting scenes for different times of day or activities, such as reading or watching TV. Many smart lighting systems also integrate with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, allowing you to control your lights hands-free using voice commands.
The benefits of smart lighting over traditional dimmer switches are clear. Smart lighting offers greater flexibility and convenience, allowing you to control your lighting from anywhere and customise the look and feel of your space to suit your needs. If you’re considering adding brass or gold ceiling lights to your space and want to enjoy the benefits of smart lighting, be sure to look for fixtures that are compatible with smart bulbs and your home hub.
Which colour temperature is best for gold and brass ceiling lights?
The best colour temperature for gold and brass ceiling lights depends on the specific style and purpose of the fixture, as well as your personal preferences. However, as a general rule, warmer colour temperatures tend to complement the warmth and richness of brass and gold finishes, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
Colour temperature is measured on the Kelvin (K) scale, with lower numbers indicating warmer, more yellow-toned light, and higher numbers indicating cooler, more blue-toned light. A colour temperature of 2700K to 3000K is generally considered a warm, inviting tone that is well-suited to most interiors. This range of colour temperature produces a soft, warm, and inviting light that is best for creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
However, if you prefer a cooler, crisper light, a colour temperature of 4000K to 5000K may be more suitable. This range of colour temperature produces a whiter, cooler light that is ideal for task lighting, such as in a kitchen or bathroom.
Ultimately, the best colour temperature for your gold or brass ceiling light will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Don’t forget, if you’re choosing smart lighting, you may not need to choose one or the other – you can change it as you need and prefer.
How do I fit a gold or brass ceiling light?
It’s important to ensure that any electrical work is carried out safely and correctly. While fitting a gold or brass ceiling light may seem straightforward, it’s always best to work with a qualified electrician to ensure that the installation is done properly and meets all safety requirements. A qualified electrician will be able to ensure that the wiring is installed correctly, that the fixture is securely mounted (important for heavier fixtures such as chandeliers) and that all necessary safety measures are in place. So, if you’re considering installing a new gold or brass ceiling light, be sure to enlist the help of a professional to ensure that the installation is safe and trouble free.
What height should gold or brass ceiling lights be fitted?
The height at which a gold or brass ceiling light should be fitted depends on the size and style of the fixture. Here are some guidelines from our experts, to help you determine the right height for your fixture:
Flush ceiling lights, which sit tight to the ceiling, are usually fine to install at any height that suits your space and design preferences. However, be sure to consider any obstructions, such as doors or cabinets, that could interfere with the light fixture.
For pendant lights or chandeliers, consider both the height of the fixture itself and the height of the ceiling. As a general rule of thumb, pendant lights and chandeliers should be installed at a height that allows for comfortable clearance for people walking underneath them – and anything they may be carrying. For dining rooms or other spaces where people will be seated at a table below it, a good guideline is to hang the fixture so that the bottom of the shade or chandelier is about 30-36 inches above the table surface.
For spaces with higher ceilings, such as foyers or staircases, you may want to consider installing a larger chandelier or pendant light that fills the space more effectively. In these cases, it’s important to ensure that the fixture is installed at the right height to avoid overpowering the space or interfering with any other design elements.
The height at which you should fit your gold or brass ceiling light will depend on a variety of factors, including the size and style of the fixture, the height of the ceiling, and the layout and purpose of the room. If you’re not sure how to determine the right height for your fixture, consider consulting with a professional lighting designer or electrician who can offer expert advice tailored to your specific needs.
How do you clean brass and gold ceiling lights?
Brass and gold ceiling lights are beautiful and luxurious, but over time, they can accumulate dust, dirt, and fingerprints. To keep your fixtures looking their best, regular cleaning is essential. Here’s how to clean brass and gold ceiling lights:
- Before cleaning any electrical fixtures, always turn off the power to the room or fixture to prevent the risk of electrical shock.
- Use a soft, dry cloth or a feather duster to remove any loose dust or debris from the fixture. Be sure to avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals, as these can damage the finish.
- Mix a small amount of mild dish soap with warm water, and use a soft cloth or sponge to gently wipe down the fixture, taking care not to get any water on the electrical components. Be sure to rinse the cloth or sponge frequently to avoid spreading dirt or grime.
- Dry thoroughly, then use a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess water and to polish the fixture to a shine.
- If your brass or gold ceiling light has developed tarnish or stains, you may want to use a brass or gold cleaner to restore its shine. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, and be sure to wipe down the fixture with a soft cloth afterwards to remove any residue.
Remember, always test any cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure that it doesn’t damage the finish of your brass or gold ceiling light. With regular care and maintenance, your fixtures will continue to shine and sparkle for years to come.
