London Illuminated Carnival Vintage Word Lightsby Contemporary Heaven
Our fantastic range of big Illuminated Carnival Vintage Letter Lights are a novel and unique way of lighting your rooms. These letter lights feature a metal construction, bright LED energy saving technology which mimics an old vintage bulb, battery powered by 3 x AA or by mains transformer which is included with each set word. The lights only need one cable from the transformer to power all the letters due to a clever interconnecting system which can be hidden within the letters. However, each letter has one joining clear cable which can be hidden at the shortest point so is never very noticeable. Our range of standard words includes two finishes; industrial silver and rust. The rust version is chemically treated to create a rust effect, thus giving a warm rustic glow. In contrast, the industrial silver has a more industrial look, giving the word lights a unique eye catching look.

Wall sconces were once the brackets on walls used to hold candles or torches before electricity was installed in homes. But wall sconces no longer refer to the rustic torches adorning the walls of castles and dungeons, and instead mean any lamp attached and wired into the wall. Wall sconces light up your home, take up very little space and provide a feature all in themselves, which is why they are popular in hallways, bathrooms or other areas of the house where floor space is limited.

What is a wall sconce and what type should I choose for my home?


More traditional wall sconces point in an upwards direction and have an open-topped lampshade covering the light, and therefore they light up the wall above them. This usually provides a soft glow that is good for areas where you want to create a relaxed atmosphere, such as a hallway or living area. For a classic look, decorative wall sconces with traditional conical lampshades, often with two lamps attached to one sconce, are a great option. Wall mounted spotlights, lanterns and wall lamps suspended by an arm are all slightly more contemporary types of sconces that can be useful all around the home, including on exterior walls, in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Placing indoor wall sconces at either side of a bed can be great bedside table lamp replacements as they take up less space and can give better light to read under than table lamps.

What style of wall sconces are available?


As with all other types of lighting, the wall sconce styles and designs that have been created are vast and you can really take your time to choose a particular style to fit with the rest of your room's design. Antique wall sconces with frosted glass panels and metallic elements will fit in with vintage interiors, while lantern-style designs could work well in industrial themed rooms or as exterior wall lights. Wall sconces with suspended arms can look good in contemporary spaces and are useful for office or reading areas where direct light is beneficial. White and glass wall lamps can provide the right amount of light needed in bathrooms but can also fit in with the calming white or light tones you usually find in bathroom design. If you're looking to make a blank wall more interesting with some wall lamps, there are lots of designer wall lights that will be visually appealing and will add drama to any blank wall.

What is a good wall sconce height?


In general, your wall sconces should be around 150-170 cm from the floor, however this may vary depending on the size of the room and where you’re placing them. If you’re mounting your wall sconces above a bedside table or another piece of furniture, then you’ll need to take both aesthetics and practicality into consideration. If you’re installing a plug in wall sconce, then make sure that it can reach a socket, whereas if you’re mounting a wall sconce with a switch then be sure that you can reach the switch with ease.
