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.
So when it comes to wall lighting you will want to create an atmosphere that is both up tempo at times and laid back and relaxing at the flip of a switch. Don't worry, I will show you exactly what you have to do to accomplish both of these atmospheres with the same wall lighting fixtures. It really isn't as difficult as it sounds. Just follow my suggestion and you are well on your way to wall lighting success.
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.
Let me first start out with each and every room you are about to grace with wall lighting. The room and what you have in the room will determine what style of wall lighting will most likely add an artful touch to the room. As I go on, you will get a good idea of what will and what will not fit into the décor of the room.
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.
