Boathouses protect one of your most valuable investments. Whether at a summer cottage or main home, with the right nautical light fixture, you can keep your boathouse safe and securely illuminated year round. Not only will a rugged and a reliable industrial cast guard light or nautical wall sconce last through exposure to outdoor elements and salty air, but it will also provide a stylish alternative to interior lighting should you have an industrial or farmhouse theme.
Nautical wall sconces like the Anchorage Bulkhead Wall Mount light fixture were first used aboard ships in the early 1900’s and were ultimately identified by their circular shape, grid like appearance and their slim, flush-mounted base. The Anchorage Bulkhead is available in two shade sizes – both small and large. Either of these bulkhead wall mount lights is suitable for stylish indoor or outdoor use. Because of their thin design, common placement for such lights include: front porches, hallways, bathrooms, pantries, or closets.
Another popular nautical wall sconce sold at Barn Light Electric is the Atomic Cast Guard CGU Sconce. This sconce is UL rated for wet locations, so it can be installed on the interior or exterior walls of your boathouse or home. With 40+ different finishes to choose from, the shade can be fully customized to complement your space. The Atomic Cast Guard CGU Sconce starts at $189 and is an ideal fixture for a home or business with a vintage, nautical, or industrial farmhouse design. With a galvanized finish, you’ll add an extra layer of protection against rust and corrosion and still have a stylish, highly attractive light fixture that guests will notice!
