The Best Materials For Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

The best materials for outdoor lighting fixtures are brass, stainless steel, and aluminum. Combine these fixture materials and brands and you’ll have an amazing look for your home’s exterior.


Brass is a durable material made from copper and zinc. The elements won’t corrode it either. Instead, the brass will slowly turn darker over time. They are more expensive than other materials but they look better for longer.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel helps give a more modern look to your yard. It has a layer of chromium oxide that keeps it from corroding, but sand and dirt can still damage it over time. It needs occasional cleaning to keep it looking great.


Aluminum fixtures are very affordable but aren’t the best quality. It doesn’t hold up well outdoors unless it has a powder coating. Add on that powder coating and you’ll have nice looking fixtures that’ll last for a while.
