The Right Lighting for Your Antique Colonial Home

If your vintage home is in need of antique light fixtures, deciding what to replace them
with may be a challenging undertaking. While there many modern styles to choose from,
selecting a
lighting fixture that is appropriate to the historic architecture of the home is
an important decision.

In the
colonial times lighting a room was a challenge, as electricity was not an option.
Candle,and in later times kerosene were the only fuel sources for lighting.  Antique colonial
lighting fixtures where commonly made of tin,iron and wood with brass being used for
formal colonial homes.

Providing light in the dark
colonial homes was always a challenging task for the skilled
craftsman that
handcrafted each lighting fixture one by one, as we still do here at Lighting
By Hammerworks. They would incorporate hand cut mirror into tin wall sconces to reflect
light back into the room. Colonial tin wall sconces were also made with a reflector to help
bounce light back into the room. Wood was often carved to create a body for a
chandelier with either iron or tin arms  holding candles to hang for lighting the center of a
room or over a dining table.

Lighting By Hammerworks has for over 30 years been creating these
antique colonial lighting fixtures
just as the skilled craftsmen of colonial times.  
Obviously electric has been incorporated into our
lighting fixtures, but we still offer burning
candle as an option on most of our antique reproduction lighting fixtures. No matter what
lighting fixture you choose for your
colonial style home, you can be sure that any option
offered by Lighting by Hammerworks is the right choice!
