Copper light fixtures are a beautiful and timeless addition to any home. They add a touch of luxury and can make even the most mundane room feel warm and inviting. 

But beyond their good looks, copper light fixtures offer a number of other benefits that you may not be aware of. 

Here are the reasons to consider copper lights for your home.

1. Copper is a Natural Antimicrobial

This means that copper lights are naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria which makes them a great choice for homes with young children or pets. 

2. Copper is Durable

Copper is an extremely durable metal, so copper light fixtures will last for many years with proper care. You won’t have to spend any money replacing them any time soon.

3. Copper is Easy to Care For

 Copper lights require very little maintenance. Simply wipe them down with a soft, dry cloth when they get dusty. Nothing else is needed.

4. Copper Develops a Patina Over Time

As copper ages, it develops a unique patina that can range in color from pale pink to rich chocolate brown. This natural aging process gives copper lights a one-of-a-kind look that you won’t find with any other type of lighting fixture. 

5. Copper is Energy Efficient

Copper is an excellent conductor of electricity, so it’s very energy efficient, meaning your energy bills will stay low even if you use your copper fixtures often. 

6. You Can Find Copper Fixtures in Any Style

Whether you prefer the traditional or contemporary design, you’ll be able to find copper light fixtures to suit your taste. 

7. Copper Lights Add Value to Your Home

Because they are so stylish and durable, copper lights can increase the resale value of your home should you ever decide to sell it. 

8. Copper Fixtures Are Eco-Friendly

Copper is a completely recyclable material, so when you’re ready to replace your copper lights, simply recycle them and know that you’re doing your part to help the environment. 

9. You Can DIY Your Own Copper Lights

If you’re feeling crafty, you can easily make your own copper fixtures using some basic supplies from the hardware store (a copper pipe, elbow joints, etc.). This can be a fun weekend project for the whole family!

10. You Can Buy Them Ready-Made from a Trusted Retailer

If DIY isn’t your thing, don’t worry, you can still enjoy the beauty of copper lights by purchasing them ready-made from a trusted retailer. All of our copper lighting fixtures are handmade by skilled artisans using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations.


When it comes to choosing lighting fixtures for your home, don’t underestimate the power of copper!
