Why Porcelain Enamel Lights Are Perfect For Your Kitchen September 29 2017, 0 Comments

Often overlooked compared to it’s wood and glass counterparts, porcelain enamel is probably the best choice of lighting for a kitchen. It was used as far back as the Ancient Egyptians who created artworks and jewelry from it.

Porcelain enamel is created by fusing powdered glass to metal with extreme heat. The glass melts onto the metal to create a smooth and durable vitreous coating. Our porcelain enamel shades use the same age old methods to produce shades that mirror the factory shades of yesteryear. What we are left with is a robust shade that will stand the test of time in any home.

Porcelain enamel light shades can come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. They retain their sheen over time and are very easy to clean. They became popular during the Industrial Revolution due to its resistance to corrosion and heat. For these reasons, they make excellent kitchen lights.
