Rustic Light Fixtures

If you live in a cabin, or if you want your home to have that look, rustic light fixtures will fit right in. Actually, it goes way beyond the cabin ambiance, because these types of light fixtures look great in almost any home where western, lodge, country, or rustic décor is present. There are many different types of rustic light fixtures, and the pictures on this page show a small sampling of what's available.

For the purpose of clarification, we'll simply say that a light fixture is attached to the wall or ceiling of a room, whereas a lamp is not attached, only plugged in. Floor lamps and table lamps can be moved easily to another location, which is handy if you want to put a reading lamp next to a different chair or when you rearrange the furniture in a room.

There are three main steps to installing rustic light fixtures, or any style for that matter. The first step is to determine what purpose you want the light to serve. Wall sconces are good for mood lighting or adding a bit of illumination to a dark hallway. Wall sconces can add light to an area without overdoing it. For example, many people like to watch television with a small to moderate amount of light in the background, rather than a bright light that fills the room.

Another type of light fixture is a ceiling light, which provides a general light source for the entire room. Ceiling lights are great for dining areas, and family rooms, especially when people are engaged in reading, playing cards or board games, family discussions, and entertaining visitors.

Once you know what purpose the light will serve, the second step is to narrow down the specific look you want for your rustic light fixtures. This is often the hardest part due to the wide variety. You can get lights made from small logs, twigs, antlers, or metal art. The fixtures might be plain or they could depict an animal or object that you would find in a rustic setting, such as moose, elk, pine trees, pinecones, a canoe, and so forth.

The third step is to install your rustic light fixtures. Unless you are a very competent do-it-yourselfer who understands household wiring, it is certainly best to get a qualified electrician to do the installation work. As for your website hosts, both Gordon and AnnaRae can flip a switch or plug in a lamp, but that's about the extent of their electrical expertise.

You'll probably be glad to know that you can also get switch covers to match or complement your favorite light fixtures. By the way, you don’t need an electrician just to change a switch cover, as long as you don’t mess with the wiring or contact points in the switch box.
