Why is good lighting important for your home?

Wall lights play a pivotal role in creating a cosy environment and highlighting certain features of your décor. With the right kind of wall lights, you can give your home interiors a lift when daylight fades. As small as this detail may seem, it surely makes a drastic difference to the overall ambience of your home.

Wall lights are one of those things that more often than not, go unnoticed. But a good light installation does have the potential to become a statement piece in the space.

So how do you go about choosing the appropriate lighting for your home?

Many different types of lighting can be used in a home, from downlights to pendant lights, from sconces to table lamps, from chandeliers to floor lamps. You should select the type of lighting according to the function of the space and its features. The way you light a living room will be different from the way you light a bathroom or kitchen, and so forth.

Before you select your wall lights, you will have to consider the size and shape of your room, the height of your ceiling, and the design and decoration of your room.

Wall Lighting ideas for your home

The best wall lighting ideas for your home are easy to achieve when you know what you want and how to get it.

What makes a good wall light?
Well, that depends on your needs. Some people prefer the look of a single-bulb fixture that can be mounted directly onto the wall. Others like a series of smaller, recessed lights that are placed in various locations around the room. Whatever your preference, there are many things you can do to create a beautiful look for your walls.

Here are some tips on choosing the right wall lighting ideas for your home:

1.    Give a unique look to the room with wall hanging lights.

If you are looking for something unique-looking, consider using pendant lights. These small fixtures hang from the ceiling and provide a soft glow that is perfect for illuminating any room in your home. You can use them as accent lights or even as the primary light source in certain areas of your home. The wall hanging lights come in different sizes and styles and surely fit nearly any space.

2.    Spice up the wall and a touch of glamour with decorative wall lights

There is no better way to add style and elegance to your living room than using beautiful wall lamps. Decorative lights add a lot of character to any room with style, and they can brighten up a dark spot.

Consider placing them in areas where guests will be standing or sitting because they offer an excellent source of ambient light that is both functional and beautiful. The other way to use decorative wall lights is around televisions as an alternative to recessed lighting, which can cause glare on screens.

You can find decorative wall lights of materials such as wrought iron, antique brass, ceramic and glass. You can also find them in different colours like bronze, black, silver and brass. Nowadays, they are available in purple and red hues as well.

3.    Place wall sconces in every room

Wall sconces with lamp shades are best suited to offer soft, ambient light. Glass wall sconces provide bright and direct light, which  makes them perfect for task lighting or reading. The usage of wall sconces on either side of the bed will give a soft glow in the bedroom and help set the mood for romance. If you prefer more direct light, you can always add bedside table lamps.

Symmetrically place a pair of sconces on either side of a doorway to add the ultimate statement. Or, use one sconce in place of a table lamp for an easier way to light those rooms of your home where space is limited. Wall-mounted lights can be placed anywhere throughout your home, essentially for lighting your living rooms or bedrooms.

4.    Give a contemporary look with modern wall lights.

Do you want to enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your home? Modern lights are the way to go. Modern wall lights free up floor space, but they also create an interesting focal point for the room. Wall lights can draw attention to art or beautiful photos on the walls giving a contemporary look.

5.    Give an elegant touch with wall mounted lights.

Wall-mounted lights are the best option because they add an elegant touch to any space without occupying zero additional floor space. They come in different sizes and styles, so you can find the exact wall light you are looking for in your home improvement project.

6.    Add a subtle look with led decorative wall lights.

If you are looking for a more subtle way to add light to your walls, you can use lighting fixtures concealed entirely. Recessed lights are the perfect choice if you want a flush surface that offers a soft glow of light. Another good option is LED recessed lighting since they are energy-efficient and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
