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.
Sconces are wall fixtures that are based upon lighting fixtures that held candles or torches during the days of castles and palaces. Today, sconces come in both traditional and contemporary designs. There are designs which require lampshades; others cast light in all direction, still others cast light either up or down. Usually placed in pairs, sconces flank doors, windows, paintings and even the breast of a fireplace. These can also be placed over a pair of chairs. When doing so, each sconce should be centered directly over the chair. A tall narrow piece of furniture, such as a high boy, a tall secretary desk, or a grand father clock, may be flanked with a pair of sconces. A sconce is usually placed 5'6" from the floor, although it may vary depending on the specific requirement of the job. Low level lighting is usually recommended for this type of wall fixture.
If you love watching movies in your living room then why not take your film watching to a whole other level. When selecting a television, be sure to get one that has an inbuilt interior light effect system. These televisions have lights at the back which match the colour of what is one screen and project it up onto the wall behind your television. This gives any movie you watch a whole new dimension and makes you feel like your whole room is part of the movie.
After you have decided on the particular style that will match the overall decor of the place you wish to install wall lighting, you will want to consider how many lights each fixture will support. You can start at one light per fixture and work your way up from there.
Another tip is to set your bedroom up with remote lighting. There is nothing more annoying than having to get up out of bed after you are all tucked in because you can't reach the light switch. By choosing an interior light system such as modern wall lights which can be operated by remote control you will be able to turn on and off, dim and change colour of your lighting with just one finger. Alternatively you may fancy trying a 'clapper' or other device that allows you to change you lighting with ease.
