Adjustable wall lights serve as very useful lighting pieces. They’re not only functional pieces to interior and exterior spaces but stylish too.
Adjustable wall lights are generally used for task-focused lighting. This contrasts with general lighting, which scatters light in a wide area. Most adjustable wall lights are fitted as bedside lamps or in an area that requires a spotlight in specific spaces. While serving as a bedside night lamp, it can also double as a reading light as you comfortably lay down on the bed.

Movable Head / Shade: This is the most common type of adjustable wall light. If the head or shade is adjustable, it will offer up and down movement or left and right maneuver. Some heads can rotate up to 180 degrees or 360 degrees due to the flexible pivot point.
Moveable Arm / Body: If the arm is adjustable, it will offer lateral movements from side to side - giving a much broader range in terms of adjustability. Some offer vertical motion changes, while others can swivel up to a certain angle. Swing arm wall lights are among the most popular and standard adjustable wall lamps with a moveable body or arm.
Combination: Adjustable wall lights under this type are one of the most versatile wall lights. They have a wide range of functions due to their moveable body and shade adaptability, starting from ambient lighting to spot and emphasis lighting and everything in between.
Others: There are also wall lights classified as adjustable wall fixtures but don't have a moveable shade or arm. For instance, the Sierra Wall Light Series from Domus Lighting has adjustable glass slides for each product in the collection. These slides help customise the angle and effect of the light when shone on the wall.
On Choosing Adjustable Wall Lights
It’s necessary to consider many factors when choosing an adjustable wall light for any of your spaces. Among all of these factors, we’d like to point out the following: purpose, spacing, light projection, existing elements in the room, and cost.
Purpose is pretty straightforward. Ask yourself what should be your adjustable wall light’s primary function? Frequently, this is directly related to the kind of room it will be installed. For bedrooms, adjustable wall lights can serve as night lights, providing the minimum soft glow allowable to brighten up an area without disrupting your sleep. There are also adjustable wall lights with bright but not glary lights that can diminish face shadows while applying makeup on a vanity table. Adjustable stair wall lights, as well as hallway wall lights, often provide ambient lighting for easier navigation in narrow dark pathways. In a sense, your adjustable wall light’s purpose is entwined with the place it’s installed. Hence, it’s better to determine this factor before browsing probable wall light options.
Next on our list is “spacing.” It’s directly related to installation and positioning, as well as to the purpose. For example, if you plan to install adjustable wall lights to highlight the artworks on your walls, you would likely decide to install them along the central axis on top of each art piece. If you plan to make decorative wall lighting with adjustable wall lights, your lighting plan must include the distance between each wall light, as well as the gap between the wall boundaries and its nearest wall light. Technically, you would realise the ideal size (length, width, depth) of your wall lights as you figure out the dimensions in this plan and use that limitation to further narrow down your potential choices.
If you read wall light buying guides online, the factor “light projection” is not commonly considered by many. Why? Because it’s something most buyers subconsciously consider when purchasing lights. When we choose the lights for our homes, we always think about how our rooms will look when they’re turned on and installed in certain areas. For example, “will this wall light create a soft scattered glow that complements the architectural elements of the wall?” “Does this adjustable wall light produce a wall washing effect, uniformly illuminating a vertical space?” Or maybe “since this wall light has slits or holes on its body, will it project different shapes and images on my room when lit?” Light projection denotes how we see the effect of the light cast by a light source on a surface and its surrounding environment, and it’s an essential aspect that purchasers must consciously ponder when buying any light.
Considering the existing decors and furniture of the room is also an essential factor when buying an adjustable wall light. Commonly, homeowners want their adjustable wall lights to complement and harmonise with the room’s atmosphere. If you have a modern-styled bathroom, then you’ll probably consider an adjustable modern-styled wall light for it, too. Some prefer to pick adjustable wall lights that stand out, so they will decisively pick big wall lights or wall lights that counters the room’s colour scheme. For example, you could choose golden or bold red adjustable wall lights as the next statement piece of your coastal-inspired room. Evidently, this boils down to your own preferences.
Last among our recommended considerations before choosing an adjustable wall light is the cost. Since the advent of online shopping, consumers have started to see a vast range of prices for many goods worldwide. You could buy high-quality yet simple adjustable wall lights for as low as $50, hi-tech multipurpose ones with intricate carvings for the price of multiple thousand dollars, and everything in between. With this massive range of adjustable wall lights available for your picking, it would be time-consuming to browse them one by one and see which one suits your lighting appetite, only to find that your chosen light fixture is beyond your budget. Fortunately, here at Zest Lighting, you can narrow down your exploration for your next adjustable wall light by customising the budget line. After clicking the search button, it will only show you the search results of the wall lights within your cost range.
