A Closer Look at Wall Lights

A Closer Look at Wall Lights

Wall lights are one of the most common lighting fixtures in homes across the UK. Like other styles, there are so many designs available that we are spoilt for choice! However, aside from the contemporary and classic styles available, how much do we actually know about wall lights?    

If you wish to learn more about this style of lighting, read on. This article seeks to highlight just a few notable features of these lights.

What are wall lights?

First of all, what are wall lights? Well, it's all in the name. Wall lights are hung up on the wall and provide a soft, warming spill of golden glow. This style of lighting can add real ambience and a calm atmosphere to certain rooms in the home.

Where are wall lights fitted?

Generally speaking, wall lights are found in living areas and hallways. However, the great thing about these lights is that you can be imaginative when it comes to their placement. For example, you may want a softer light in the conservatory or dining area to help guests feel welcome and more relaxed when enjoying a meal.

Alternatively, bedrooms are also a good place for wall lights as, depending on the fixture style and bulb, the light produced isn't too overpowering. This makes it perfect as an alternative reading light if you don't fancy purchasing a table or floor lamp. In this instance, you will need to place the fixture strategically to receive the desired effect; perhaps in the middle of the wall behind the bed.

What styles are available?

If we've caught your attention with wall lights, you may be wondering what kind of styles are available on today's market. Well, ceramic bowl wall lights are one of the most popular designs, though there are many others on offer. Of course, you have the traditional and modern wall lights, but you also have chic and rustic styles too that can add something special and quirky to any room in your home.

Lastly, you also have LED wall lights. These are both cost-efficient and aesthetically appealing, making them an ideal choice for task lighting. They are also great if you love to snuggle up with a book in bed after a long day, but don't want to illuminate the entire room.

This is just a short guide to wall lights.
