Beach Wall Sconces & Nautical Wall Sconces

beach wall sconces

When it comes to a beach home, you generally want tons of natural light indoors, open space, and beautiful coastal decor to make it feel like you never leave the sand. When you come home at night through the front door, you want nautical wall sconces at the entrance. And when you go outdoors at night to relax on your back patio, you need even more lighting. One of the best options is to choose beach or nautical wall sconces.

We have a variety of our nautical sconces listed below that will mount to the wall on your front porch, the side of your house, on your deck, or on your outdoor patio. They will hang anywhere on your home and you could even use them if you put large wood rods into the ground for decoration on your patio. Hopefully you find a beach themed wall mounted light or lantern that you love!

Nautical Wall Sconces

When it comes to nautical themed wall sconces, you will find plenty of rustic, industrial, and stainless steel sconces.


Beach Wall Sconces

Beach themed wall sconces usually feature seashells, capiz, and coastal themes. Many of them are lighter in color to give off brightness in a beach home.


What is a Wall Sconce?

A sconce is defined as a wall hanging bracket that holds a candle or another light source. The word sconce actually derives from a lantern that could hold a candle and protect it from wind. That’s one reason why they work so well near a coastal home, where there is usually a nice breeze. Beach wall sconces are usually connected to electrical power but you can use candles as well.

How to Choose Beach Wall Sconces

Below are all of the things you should keep in mind as you make your coastal wall sconce purchase. There are plenty of things to consider as far as size, height, weight, light source, style, theme, price, fixture type, shade style, lightbulbs, and more. There are so many lighting options for your beach home, and wall sconces are one of them.

Sconce Style

There are different types of wall sconces to choose from including beach, tropical, nautical, rustic, modern, contemporary, and more. Depending on the rest of your home and the overall style, your decision should be pretty easy. In an open airy tropical home, our palm tree themed wall sconces would be perfect. For an open-sea nautical house, our antique lanterns would be beautiful.

Sconce Size

What height and width would work perfectly for the space? Sometimes outdoors if you have a large space you might want to go with something larger that 15 inches wide and 20 inches tall. On your front porch, you might want something smaller that blends well with the front of your home and doesn’t stand out too much, closer to 10 inches wide and 15 inches tall.


How many lightbulbs do you need for your wall sconce? What kind of light source are you looking for? Incandescent, CFL, and LED are the most popular sources of light and wall sconces usually come in sets of one, however you can find wall mounts with 4 lights or even more.

Beach Wall Sconce Finish

You can find nautical wall sconce finishes featuring nickel, silver, brass, bronze, gold, chrome, white, black, and more. There are different colors and styles of finish whether you need something for a rustic beach home or something more modern and clean.

Sconce Shade

The shade ranges from glass to frosted glass to crystal to fabric. There are many different shade types that go over the wall sconce and protect the light. I prefer clear glass types because they are not only the most popular but I believe they look the nicest.

Lighting Type

There are different types when it comes to lighting in that some are battery powered, others have candles, and the most popular option is electricity. Obviously if you have no power available then you would use battery operated versions or candlelit options. If you have no clue how to install a wall sconce with electrical power, you should be able to find a company that can hook up the electrical for you and even hang it up.

Where To Put Your Sconce?

Sconces usually go in pairs regardless of the lighting type you are using. For electric wall sconces, you would place them on either side of the front door, a fireplace, or across from each other in a hallway. For candle sconces, you usually want to hang them similarly to a picture. You can put two next to each other about a foot apart or you can put one slightly higher than the other and about one foot to the side.

You usually want to put it at least 6 feet in the air but preferably higher depending on the space. A lower sconce will be at eye level for many people and usually you want them to be above you.

If you place a beach wall sconce in a hallway, make sure they don’t go out from the wall too far to avoid people walking into them or any other accidents.

In Summary

Hopefully you are able to find exactly the nautical wall sconces you are looking for. These are beautiful beach wall sconces and we have a huge variety above for you to choose from for your beach home. They have that old weathered beach feel but they add a beautiful touch of decor.

Lamp Style

One of the most important things about the lighthouse lamp is the overall style because some of them include awesome features that you would only see up close at a lighthouse if you went there in person. Others are smooth and don’t contain the finer details that you might be looking for. For people who love lighthouses you will absolutely want every little detail to be shown on your lamp otherwise it might bother you when you look at it and realize that something is missing. I have climbed to the top of a lighthouse before and you might have done that too, and you know that there are a lot of little details as you go up all the steps inside of the lighthouse.

Lamp Brightness

Some floor lamps offer dimming options while others can be extremely bright. Are you looking for a soft light for the nighttime so you can wind down? Or are you looking for a bright light because you like to read in your living room? Make sure you look at the type of light bulbs you purchase and how many light bulbs go into the lamp. I also prefer lamps where you can set that 1, 2, 3, or 4 lights are on at any time.

Lamp Height

Lamps mostly come in the same height but you need to make sure it fits in your living room and doesn’t stand out as being too tall. A shorter lamp might not work all that well either if the light shines too bright.

Lamp Price

Price ties back to overall design quality and the quality of material used to make a lamp. More expensive lamps are generally heavier and feature more craftsmanship and fine details while cheaper lamps may be lighter, only feature one light bulb and one setting.


The lamp you put in your living room might be different than the bedroom and home office. You might want something brighter in your home office and something softer in the living room where you go to relax. Keep in mind the room you are putting the lamp in and exactly what you are looking for.


Benefits of Beach Floor Lamps

Reduce Eye Strain

A floor lamp with the right shade can provide the right ambiance in your home and lighting so your eyes don’t hurt from the light bulb and so your eyes don’t strain from brightness. A beach floor lamp can be absolutely perfect for your eyes so you don’t have any long term effects.

Save Space

Floor lamps can be very compact and you don’t need a large end table to hold it. Putting a floor lamp in the corner of your living room for example can take up minimal space but also be bright enough to have light at night.

Beach Themed Lighting

Anytime you can incorporate more beach decor and coastal styles into your home I’d consider it a major benefit. We all want to feel like we never leave the beach and a complementary lamp can be a huge difference in the appearance and appeal of a room in your home.

Nautical Lanterns and Beach Lanterns

nautical lantern

A nautical decor theme has become one of the top styles people choose when decorating their homes. It’s not just for the vacation home anymore. In my opinion, one of the most overlooked decoration for this theme is the nautical lantern. Nautical lanterns tend to bring warmth to the room with an added touch of history, and a feeling of antique. We added our collection of beach lanterns and nautical themed lanterns that you can add to your beach home.

Most people go overboard with the beach look. Seashells, sand, coral and fish. I think if you are going to go for a welcoming, warm feeling in your home you should add a few nautical gems. This can include, a ship’s bell, knots, wooden ship’s wheels, or anchors. Again though, I’m going to go back to the nautical lanterns.


More Nautical Lanterns



How to Choose Nautical Lanterns

Most nautical lanterns are made of brass and years ago, they were oil based lamps. Today, you can get a replica that will use electricity to light up your room. Many people do not know that there are several types of lanterns to choose from. You can go with a port theme or starboard side lantern. Or you can choose to get an anchor lantern or cargo lantern. Each one has its own unique history are reasoning for their use. They become great conversation pieces due to the style and history of the lantern.

Where to Find Nautical Lanterns

The perfect nautical lantern for your home is not hard to find, even if you are living in a land locked area. Some of the best places to find these great antiques are online. You are sure to find old, original nautical lanterns there. If you are looking for replica’s or ones that have been converted to use electricity, than online is a great place too. There are several replica stores that handle these lanterns and you can order form them online. Last but not least, if you find yourself vacationing near the ocean, take a walk through the local antique shops. You are sure to find what you are looking for there.

How to Decorate With Lanterns

Rooms that are dark or dim can use these pieces to light the room at strategic points while retaining and enhancing a room’s natural beauty. Today, an antique lantern is used as an excellent decorative item that brings an old world feel to any room. One unique ability of this piece is that it can fit in with almost every type of setting. These pieces do very well in both more professional office spaces as well as informal home areas. The dual purpose of this item – as a decoration and as having a use in emergencies – make it a very well-rounded installment.

When People Use Lanterns

Most lanterns are either used when camping in the wilderness or when one wishes to have a more aesthetically unique home. Though the fuel for many lamps has been changed throughout history, the lanterns of today mostly use oil. The bright light of these lanterns throughout history helped sailors to see through a rough storm.

Other Uses for Nautical Lanterns

The light given off by an antique lantern is a very ambient light. This is due in part to the effect an oil-fed flame has versus regular electric bulbs. In emergencies, these items can serve as a first aid light source and asset to any home. Many gatherings of emergency support equipment and first aid kits come well equipped with small lamps that are powered either by batteries or oil. An antique lantern retains a wonderful sense of old world, well aged charm with their slightly older frames, age, and long history of use.

Gas Lanterns

Gas powered lanterns are the most common antique lantern that many enthusiasts posses and many of these are still in decent shape – some may even be able to be utilized using their appropriate fuels. An antique lantern does best when powered by gas in order to burn, as opposed to an oil lantern. Because of their slender shape, an antique lantern can fit with ease on any display surface or podium. Overall, these items are beautifully crafted works of art that have rich histories lighting the way for those in the dark. The shine of these lamps is like no other, but patches of wear give these items a very unique, vintage character as well.

In Summary

People tend to look at nautical lanterns as a symbol of living near the ocean and being at sea. The pieces are often seen in paintings pictures regarding sea life and the life of sailing on a ship. If you want to add to your nautical decor, adding a new beach lantern or a rustic nautical themed lantern can make a huge difference.

Different types of nautical home lighting are available for sale so you have a lot of choice.

Nautical Lighting Chandeliers

For the outside of a home, a bulkhead light makes a very vintage-looking porch light, especially if you put one on each side of the entryway. These lights should be brass in finish and very chunky. Typically, the brass mounts to the wall and then curves down or sticks straight out so that the bulb hangs from the fixture. And in keeping with truly nautical chandeliers, the bulb should have a brass cage around it. That was to prevent the lights from being easily broken. While it’s not necessary for your porch, that cage definitely lets people know it’s a nautical light as the style is a recognizable one.

Nautical Entryway Lighting

In an entryway, a great type of fixture to have is a chandelier done in a distinctive style. One very quirky design is an anchor serving as the post and two arms of the chandelier with lights mounted on each point or hanging from them to continue the chandelier feel. The metal should be either shiny brass or weathered, greenish brass, to give it an authentic look.

Cleaning Light Fixtures

While you are considering new nautical lighting fixtures, it is important to check how easy it is to clean them, since you’ll need to clean them regularly to keep their look. Depending on the extent you wish to light the home, you can then pick the nautical chandeliers of your choice. If you go with chrome fixtures, you may need to wipe them frequently with a spray or polish to keep them always shining. While buying the nautical chandeliers, it is important to know whether they are resistant to a steamy atmosphere in the home, otherwise, they can get damaged if they are exposed to too much moisture. Many hanging nautical lighting fixtures may not be steam resistant, which may wear outdoors or close to your kitchen.

Nautical Decorations

Once you have finished installing your nautical chandelier, you can then add nautical accessories to complete that coastal theme. Some of the most popular nautical themes include anchors, ship wheels, lighthouses, compasses, seashells, and more. In addition, you want to make sure your colors flow and the decorations do not clash with each other. You can quickly add to your nautical decor with anchor wall plaques, wooden ship wheels, nautical lamps, and accents.

In Summary

In conclusion, when you use nautical chandeliers, it is the best way to improve your nautical home decor. Nautical homes are a great way to create a relaxing vibe and calm atmosphere. It’s not difficult to love your dining room with a huge beautiful nautical themed chandelier. You can quickly lighten and brighten your coastal home. Upgrading the interior of your house is a quick way to add positive chance and fixtures can really go a long way.

atmosphere kitchen and bath - columbus avenue dining room - nautical chandelier

When you are trying to find the best beach chandeliers for your home, it can be a difficult task. Luckily, we have put together our list that includes not only our favorite chandeliers but every single one we sell.

You need lighting in your home and especially your kitchen. One of the quickest ways to add character and brightness to your home is with the use of a coastal, beach, tropical, or nautical themed chandelier. You can use them over your dining room table, in your bedroom, or even as a huge centerpiece in a large window that everyone can see.

Below, you will find all of our favorite beach chandeliers and then if you keep scrolling we have some buying tips and interior design ideas that should help.

Beach Chandeliers


Choosing Beach Chandeliers

If you’re looking for a way to incorporate a beach theme into your home, one unique option is to purchase a beach chandelier! A beach chandelier is a statement piece that can be placed in foyers, dining areas, office spaces, or even in the kitchen. You can also fall asleep at night in your bedroom by looking up at a breathtaking light fixture that reminds you of the warm ocean breezes and your feet in the sand.

But what exactly should you be looking for when buying beach chandeliers? Our easy guide will take you the process of what types of chandeliers are available; placement ideas, how much they cost, and what you should be looking for depending on your style and your other home decor. Let’s jump in right away to your buying guide to beach chandeliers.

More Beach Themed Chandeliers



Types and Styles of Beach Chandeliers

Beach chandeliers are simply fascinating. They come in so many different styles and can be made out of an array of materials that will just stun everyone who walks into your home. If you’re looking for a simple design, you may want to buy a chandelier made out of seashells. The reason for this is that there are many types of shells, which means that you can choose between neutral colors or bold colors depending on your style. You can also pick from different shells like starfish, sand dollars, clam shells, scallop shells, and more.

Popular Beach Themed Chandeliers

Chandeliers made out of shells also come in an assortment of sizes, so if you want to start off with a small fixture it’s a great option. But what other types of beach styles are available?

  • Seahorse Chandeliers: Chandeliers made out of seahorse designs where the seahorses are holding up the lampshades.
  • Sea Glass Chandeliers: Fixtures made out of sea glass which are both breathtaking and come in an assortment of colors. Sea glass are typically pastel in colors and when combined with light, create a stunning piece.
  • Nautical Chandeliers: Rustic old nautical looks including rope, lanterns, and metal.
  • Driftwood Chandeliers: You can find beach light fixtures out of beach wood or driftwood. This option provides that worn and distressed look that is so popular.
  • Coral Chandeliers: Fixtures that are made out of coral – these chandeliers come in a wide variety of styles since coral varies in color, shape and size.
  • Fish Chandeliers: Light fixtures made of metal that include designs composed of fish, starfish, seashells, or other beach life.
  • Octopus Chandeliers: Octopus styled chandeliers where the arms look like octopus tentacles.

Placement Ideas for Chandeliers

Once you decide on the style that you like, deciding where to put it is also something to think about. Smaller beach chandeliers make great fixtures for bathrooms or over kitchen sinks. Medium sized chandeliers work well in bedrooms, hallways and over kitchen islands. If you’re really going for a statement piece, put your new large beach themed chandelier in the foyer, a large living room or over your dining table.

Price Range

Prices vary greatly depending on the size and material that your beach chandelier is made out of, but here’s a general guide to help give you a few price points:

  • Small chandeliers made of sea glass or seashells start around $100 and go up from there.
  • Small chandeliers made from coral start at a few hundred dollars and go up. Large coral chandeliers are oftentimes priced above $1,000.
  • Medium chandeliers run from around $300 all the way up to $1,000 or more.
  • Large chandeliers are going to be the most expensive regardless of the material that they are made from and typically start around $500 and can go up to several thousand dollars.

While beach chandeliers may seem expensive, many of them are sourced from natural materials that are unique and hard to find and source. If budget is a concern, you can buy some that are created from man made materials such as glass and metal. For example, a chandelier made from metal fish would be a cute way to dress up any room in your home.

Chandelier Design Tips

Integrating a beach chandelier into your home’s style and decor is very simple since there are so many style options to choose from. Pastels from sea glass will go with just about any other decor theme, while bright corals will give you a one of a kind look that your guests will talk about for months or years to come. Plus, with the distressed look being so popular in home decor, a fixture made from beach wood or driftwood will blend perfectly with the rest of your home’s distressed beach decor.


Beach Chandelier Design Inspirations

You might not be sure where to get started so having an inspiration is great. Not only can you understand the types of colors that work best with different styles, and you can see what will work best over your dining room table, in a bedroom, or as a huge centerpiece light. You will notice a lot of coastal and beach chandelier options are usually lighter in color because they can be easier to match with your interior decor.
