Always make sure your wall lighting will fulfill your needs. Know whether you are planning on lighting up the room or putting the finishing touch on some sort of wall art by giving it just the right amount of light. Remember, by installing a dimmer switch to your wall lights you can have the lighting atmosphere of your choice at any time.
The kids will want to play and enjoy their time in an area that suits their activities. There may be dress ups, colouring, drawing, building things, videos and reading, all in the same area. Consider what sort of lighting you need in that area and if you need lighting at all, especially if the area is usually being used during the day. Most area, despite being used in the day time will need some sort of lighting, and you may want special features such as dimmer switches or spot lights. Safety is obviously an important factor when it comes to planning the kids area. Ensure a qualified electrician fits all the lights and that no loose wires are present.
Wall light fixtures, such as sconces and wall lamps, are often overlooked when lighting purchases are made. Why is this? Some may be hesitant of the installation factor - wall fixtures need to be mounted and may need minor electrical work as well. With floor and table lamps, one need simply plop the light down, plug it in, and voila - let there be light. So yes, there is a little extra work or installation cost (for you non do-it-yourselfers), as opposed to other lighting options. But there are also some major advantages wall lighting has over standard lamps. Floor and table space for one. Everyone wants more room for family photos, trinkets, and even plants on their end tables, and wall lighting is a great way to get this space while still adequately lighting a room. Second, with floor and table lamps come unsightly and often dangerous (especially if you have kids running around) electrical cords. Properly installed wall lights are hard-wired and all wiring is hidden behind your walls giving your room an ultra-clean look. Let's take a look at a few popular wall lighting options, shall we.
