Wall lighting plays an important role in lighting design and no matter what style you prefer, the fundamentals of how to choose wall lights should be understood to successfully use them in any room. Their role in an interior is as much decorative as it is functional.
Wall lights are an indispensable asset for the lighting and design in any room, they must be useful as they have been around since the days of candles on a girandole sconce! They remain the primary opportunity to introduce a source or ‘layer’ of light that is positioned in between the ceiling and the lower shades of table lighting, illuminating people and objects roughly at head height. This sideways accent illumination into a space assists in cancelling out the shadows cast under peoples noses and eyes from downlighters and ceiling lights. This ‘human level’ lighting is a key ingredient to every successful lit environment.
In this LED era wall lights have come of age and grown into modern useful task lights, reading lights, offer a huge variety of accent lighting, contribute to general lighting and protect us in times of emergency.
