Regardless of your style preference, lighting within your home can make a world of difference in its appearance. In fact, lighting can entirely transform your living space if it’s approached in a thought-out manner. Unfortunately, however, lighting is a design element that is often overlooked. Not only can it boost the entire design of your space, it can provide a sense of ambiance and beauty, in addition to functionality. When it comes to wall lighting there are is a wide variety of different options available that can truly transform and beautify your home. So, throughout this blog post I want to discuss wall lighting and the various options available.
Wall Sconce Lighting Installation
Wall sconces are a beautiful addition to rooms or a particular area of a house where a single overhead light doesn’t quite do the job. This might include:
- Narrow, Awkward Spaces
Not only will wall sconce lighting add illumination to those sometimes hard-to-light-areas, this particular kind of wall lighting will add a decorative accent that deserves to be admired. Keep in mind, however, if you are installing wall sconces in really narrow spaces, you don’t want to purchase a large set of sconces as they could possibly get caught on clothing.
Low-Voltage and Recessed Wall Lighting Options
Low-voltage and recessed wall lighting options are becoming increasingly popular. These lighting options are a great option for those areas that need an accent, but not task lighting. Low-voltage wall lighting also uses less energy, which makes them a bit more energy efficient.
Now, recessed wall lighting is another option for homeowners who don’t have much space to spare as they are positioned on the ceiling. This type of lighting provides more of a modern feel as well, so they aren’t for everyone. There are, however, a lot of different styling elements that can be added with recessed wall lighting.
Placement of Wall Lighting
Regardless of what kind of wall lighting you decide to go with, wall lights are often installed in pairs (i.e. on either side of a fireplace, bed, couch, mirror, window, etc.). Sure, while wall lights can look amazing by themselves, installing them in pairs will provide a symmetrical appearance and a uniform appearance. If your wall lighting is installed in such a way you might also find that you never use your ceiling lights — there will be no need.
It’s important to make sure that the distance between the lights are measured exactly. A few inches here and there might not make a difference in some locations, but in others it could be very noticeable.
All in all, wall lighting is a great addition to any living space and with the right selection you will be on your way to having a room that you can be proud of and enjoy, simultaneously.
