Usually, wall sconces are placed along the walls of hallways or flanking doorways, adding light to areas of the home where it may be needed most. Nowadays, it's even alright to place a wall sconce or two in places like bathrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Installing a couple wall sconces in your bathroom in place of vanity lights or track lighting will create an open air, yet tranquil ambiance while without compromising on luminosity.
You can have these wall light fixtures installed over your reading desk, by the bed side or over the kitchen table. This means that you can place then in areas where you need light for a specific job only. or for illuminating a specific part of the house. I find it a good idea to combine the use of various wall light fixtures with fluorescent bulbs and low voltage lights since they are energy saving and environment friendly.
It has come to my attention that many of my readers have very little information when it comes to wall lighting. I get contacted all the time by my friends in cyberspace who would like to have a general idea of what is available to them in the form of wall lighting. Some of them go as far as to tell me what room they intend to install wall lights and include the theme or style of room decor, so I am able to suggest the wall lighting best to fill their needs.
I have some words of advice. If you are planning on installing wall lighting on a wall that does not already have the power wires in place, always seek the help of a professional electrician. There are licensed professional contractors who are available to help you get the job done correctly. Also, if you are planning on adding lighting to some sort of wall art, be careful and use lighting that will not damage or fade your art. There are special bulbs to insert into your wall lighting fixture that won't damage your wall art.
When we are considering the decoration of our homes, it can be easy to get inspiration for colour schemes, furniture and the layout of the room. There are many places to see aspirational rooms in interior design magazines, on home improvement television programmes and by visiting showrooms in a variety of stores. Whilst these may give us an idea for a lamp or lightshade, it can be more difficult to recreate the effect of carefully positioned light sources in our own homes.
