Lighting can dramatically affect and influence any given situation. That's why there are different types of lighting fixtures that can help you achieve a mood you want to create. Wall lighting fixtures are an essential part of establishing the mood and creating the ambiance of a room. Sconces, swivel-arms, wall cans and make-up lights are some of the most widely used wall lighting fixtures.
Accent Lighting - As its name suggests, accent lighting is used to accent (or highlight) features of interest and should be brighter than any ambient illumination. In a lot of spaces, it is used to add drama to a room, which, in turn, adds a sense of increased appeal. Wall lights used as accent lighting are commonly fitted with dark or opaque shades, as this forces the light to spread out from above and below the fixture, creating an attractive hourglass shape and dramatic shadows. Wall lights are commonly used to draw the eye to artworks, plants and even architectural elements.
Swivel-Arm wall fixtures are task lamps. These are usually the lamps you see with extended arms which swings about in any direction and provides illumination for specific activities like reading in bed or sitting in a chair, working at a desk or when playing cards at a table.
If you are not quite sure what style your furniture actually is, believe me, you are not alone. To make things easier to calculate, all you really need to know is what your furniture looks like. Take a piece of paper and a pen. Write down the type of wood that is in the room along with the color of the wood. Does your wood furniture have any metal accents? If the room is furnished with a lot of chrome, put that in your notes. Is glass a major part of the room décor? Does your wall art and decorations center over a single theme? Write all this information down so you can make an educated decision on the type of wall lighting would go well.
Interior lighting is a great way to change the look and feel of your home without forcing you to redecorate completely. Modern lighting now offers you such a variety of flexible options that pretty much whatever you can think of, can be done with lights. Old light bulbs have almost been completely replaced in the UK by more energy efficient, long lasting and more dynamic lights. This is not only better for your budget and the environment; it also gives you the opportunity to change the feel of you home with ease and to pull your home into the modern age.
