Originally created to hold candles and torches along the walls, wall lighting remains a popular lighting choice and can provide ambient or task lighting for any space. Available in a wide range of styles, sizes and shapes, a wall light fixture can complement a living room with background illumination or flank a piece of artwork to highlight its appeal. Regardless of how you plan to use it, be sure to learn the basic facts before purchasing your wall lighting products.

What is wall lighting and why might I consider it?

Wall lights are mounted on the wall are therefore are a great way to add light to your room without taking up precious floor space – making them ideal for narrow spaces, such as hallways. Indoor wall lights can provide ambient or task lighting, and can work as the main light source or simply as a complement to existing lamps. Outdoor wall lighting is a popular choice because overhead lighting space is limited and wall lights can be attached to exterior walls and fences. With lots of styles to choose from, wall lighting can also add an extra punch of decoration.

What types of wall lighting styles are available?

Options are endless when it comes to wall lights, making it easy to match the style and look you desire. Determine what’s right for you by first evaluating the size of the room you’re working in, then figure out if it will act as a primary or complementary source of lighting to the existing room décor. An oversized cast iron fixture will provide ample, ambient lighting while lending a rustic look to your space. For a modernised look, place slender wall torchieres with clean, straight lines on either side of your fireplace. Chrome wall lights are growing in popularity and look great as living room lighting in contemporary and industrial style homes.

Where in the home should I place my wall lighting?

Any room in the home can benefit from a wall light, even outdoors, but determine exactly what you want from your lighting to decide where one will work best for you. Wall lighting is great for flanking paintings, bathroom mirrors, and headboards, as well as being used as reading lights to illuminate a reading nook without a table. It’s also helpful in small entryways, hallways or staircases where floor space is minimal. Outdoor wall lighting can provide security and guidance as well as ambient light if you’re enjoying a late evening in your garden.

Where on the wall should I place my wall lighting?

This depends on the size of the room, but in general, they should be mounted 150-170 cm above the ground. Spread them anywhere from 2 to 3 metres apart: closer to 2 metres if you want more fixtures and thus more light, or closer to 3 metres if you prefer less light. If you’re lining a staircase with wall lights, avoid seeing the bulb from above the fixture by adding a closed diffuser onto the sconce or by using a downlight.

How to install wall lighting:

You should take into account whether your wall has been pre-wired to accept wall lighting. If it hasn’t, you may need to hire a professional to help you install it. If you don’t want to deal with the extra expense and effort, seek out a fixture that simply requires a cord and plug application. With outdoor wall lighting it may be easier to go with battery powered lights, but if you’re hiring a professional they’ll easily be able to wire up your outdoor wall lighting for you.
