In most rooms it is advisable to use multiple light sources in order to create the right feel. Interior designers often refer to these multiple sources as layers of light. These start with general ambient lighting, with task lighting and/or accent lighting adding additional layers. Let's explain this in more detail. Ambient lighting is the general illumination of the space. Natural sunlight provides good ambient lighting during the day, but ceiling or wall lights are usually used for ambient lighting when the sunlight has faded.
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.
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.
