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.
The beauty about wall lighting in general is that most are designed as directional lights, which basically means they're either upward facing, downward facing, or diagonal lights. Wall sconces are generally designed as such. But if it's reading lights or adjustable lighting that you're looking for, then perhaps you should consider investing in wall lamps. Wall lamps function the same way a wall sconce does, except most are designed to be adjustable, either extending out and away from the wall or alongside it. Usually designed to work as reading lamps, wall lamps are situated lower on the wall unlike its wall sconce counterpart. Of course, you could easily utilize a wall lamp in place of a wall sconce in hallways and dining rooms.
Any outdoor setting, no matter how large or small, benefits from proper lighting. In fact, the perfectly placed outdoor wall lighting can transform the darkest of settings. Modern lighting can lift a drab and small outdoor area, while large areas can go to town with all the modern lighting options out in the market place. Outdoor flood lights are one popular option, as is outdoor wall lighting. These variations allow you to set the tone and mood for the right area.
