Guide To Selecting Wall Lights

Ask any interior designer and they will tell you that lighting is a vital ingredient for a warm and inviting ambiance, and wall lighting has a lot more to offer than simply aesthetics. While adding style and elegance, a set of wall lights can also provide both task and general lighting, and with that in mind, here are some lighting tips to inspire you.

Illuminate Wall Art

With a few well-placed wall lights, you can showcase wall art and there are many different designs, allowing you to blend with the decor.

Wall lights can also brighten up dark corners and pair well with ceiling lights to give both general and task lighting.

Eye Level Placements

The most effective way to use wall lighting is to set the units at roughly eye level, and it is worth noting that there should be no direct light visible, rather it should be shaded from view. Even spacing is also advised, and limit the number of wall lights, even in a long corridor, as it can become too repetitive.

Directional Spotlights

These can be upper or lower design, and send a splash of light onto a wall, which gives the room some depth. Used in combination with coloured bulbs, directional spots can bring a freshness to an otherwise bland room, and with LED solutions, you have a wide range of light hues to explore. Whether the room is modern or contemporary, there are many different designs, with swinging wall lights that can be projected away from the wall and provide task lighting. There are some wall lights that can provide either upper or lower lighting, changing with a simple twist of the shade, which allows some variation.

Focal Point

Wall lighting can either blend in with the decor or create a focal point, as with a unit above a painting, and you really need to decide on which best suits your setting. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your wall lighting, as this can help you find the right design and placement, and if you would like to browse an endless selection of both interior and exterior lighting, a Google search will bring up a list of local lighting stores and you can take it from there.


Wall lighting can be blended into any environment, and depending on the style of the room, you can mix the old with the new.  A modern room is a perfect place for a couple of Victorian gas lamps, and if you would like some lighting inspiration, there are great articles featuring a selection of lighting ideas that would brighten up any interior.

If you don’t have the time to source local lighting stores, why not buy from an online supplier? They have a wider range of stock that a traditional retail store and with lower prices and free delivery, you really can’t go wrong.
