Lighting can dramatically affect and influence any given situation. That's why there are different types of lighting fixtures that can help you achieve a mood you want to create. Wall lighting fixtures are an essential part of establishing the mood and creating the ambiance of a room. Sconces, swivel-arms, wall cans and make-up lights are some of the most widely used wall lighting fixtures.
Swivel-Arm wall fixtures are task lamps. These are usually the lamps you see with extended arms which swings about in any direction and provides illumination for specific activities like reading in bed or sitting in a chair, working at a desk or when playing cards at a table.
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.
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.
