Elegant without the added glimmer, glass wall lights brighten up the interior and exterior spaces with the material’s iconic reflective properties.
Whether it’s smoke, amber, clear, frosted, or coloured, glass wall lights have an appeal that suits shared spaces like living rooms and dining halls, as well as private rooms like bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition, they can complement most art aesthetics, from the old-age traditional style to the modern contemporary designs and everything in between.
Here at Zest Lighting, we’re committed to introducing only the best in designer lighting. As such, we have amassed a collection of glass wall lights that showcases different elements from each era. Browse our collection and see if any suits your needs and preferences.

Many consumers tend to interchange the terms glass and crystal when shopping for new lighting. To set matters straight, here are the most common differences between the materials glass and crystal and how you can identify which is which without reading the product’s specifications:
Generally, glass looks foggier than crystals due to their chemical composition. Moreover, if you have a flashlight or any light beam on hand, most crystals will show a prism of rainbow colours when light is directed to them; glass doesn’t have this effect.
If you’re choosing between a glass wall light and a crystal wall light but don’t know which is which, try tapping the material - the sound of the jabbed glass material is always shorter than when you strike a crystal.
If you have a UV light readily available, shine it on your chosen wall light. Usually, a green tint will show if it's made from glass, while a blue hue is displayed if it’s made from crystal.
Generally, glass is thicker than crystal, making it more durable and resistant to force. Despite this, crystals are heavier than glass.
On Choosing Glass Wall Lights
When deciding which glass wall light should you buy for your space, consider how it will affect the decors and furniture currently placed in the prospective area. Its light projection, design, size, and colour must complement the setting, whether its purpose is to become a statement piece in the room or as an accent light for your decorations.
You must also consider installation requirements and maintenance. Some models are easy to install, while others may require additional materials to fix them on your walls. Moreover, their placements on your walls must not obstruct foot traffic, or else accidents may happen. Finally, some just need a monthly or weekly wiping session using a clean, dry cloth and a cleaning solution for maintenance. In contrast, others are sensitive to certain chemicals and require daily checks. Knowing these factors before buying your wall light can help you immensely in the long run.
