WHAT IS A BULKHEAD LIGHT FITTING
Vintage bulkhead light fittings were originally designed for use in ships, boats and other marine vessels, but have since become a popular choice for industrial and coastal-inspired home interiors. These lights are known for their rugged construction, durability, and watertight sealing, making them an ideal choice for outdoor and marine environments.
Vintage bulkhead lights typically feature a heavy-duty metal casing that is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and exposure to saltwater. The lights are also fitted with a thick glass lens that helps to protect the bulb and diffuses the light, creating a soft, even glow.
In addition to their practical qualities, vintage bulkhead lights are also highly sought after for their unique aesthetic qualities. The rugged, industrial design of these lights makes them a popular choice for use in modern and industrial-style home interiors. They are often paired with other vintage and reclaimed furnishings to create a cohesive and visually striking look.
Whether you are looking for a durable and practical lighting solution for outdoor or marine environments, or you simply appreciate the unique aesthetic qualities of vintage industrial design, vintage bulkhead lights are a versatile and attractive choice.
