Brass bathroom light fixtures may call to mind traditional or even historical styles, but the wide range of design styles means they can work well in any bathroom, from the most solidly traditional to the most cutting-edge contemporary.

Brass offers some great advantages for bathroom lighting design—it's strong and durable, resistant to moisture, and comes in a range of finishes from traditional "gleaming" brass to distressed "shabby chic" finishes.

Another option for brass bathroom light fixtures is to create your own finish. For example, if you live in an older home with original brass fixtures, and you're fond of their shape but not their shine, consider heading to your local home repair store for a few cans of metal-rated spray paint. Available in a range of colors and finishes, spray paint can easily give you the exact tone and texture you want for your brass bathroom lighting.

Lastly, if you're considering brass bathroom light fixtures, make sure to try before you buy—test out the top light bulb strength for the fixtures using portable lamps prior to installing anything permanently. You definitely don't want to install the fixtures only to find out that they provide inadequate light for your bath space.
