Hallways are often composed of bare walls and unobtrusive floors. Spice it up and enliven the space with appropriate hallway wall lights along with decors and furniture. Use wall light fixtures to connect the ambiences of your hallway's adjacent rooms, creating a seamless flow of style all over your home.

A hallway is where heavy foot traffic is apparent throughout the day. Therefore, it’s common sense to add light and illuminate every corner of this place to prevent accidents and promote a seamless traffic flow. It’s also often connected to entryways and lobbies, making it one of the few spots in a building that greets guests and gives them a first impression of the property owners. With these functions of a hallway, and adding the fact that it’s often a small narrow space, it evident that conscious and careful planning of hallway lighting is an essential deed, both for homeowners and business people alike.
One of the top considerations when planning the lighting for a hallway is the final appeal of the place itself. How would you like your hallway to be viewed from a third person’s perspective? Most families want a bright, sunny, and refreshing hallway that is child-friendly and neat. Hence, they dispose of clutters on the ground, put small console tables on corners, and install recessed wall lights, creating a cosy, clean, and bright pathway. On the other hand, many business owners like unobstructed and stylish hallways for a free-flowing customer and employee traffic flow, so they install trendy wall sconces on walkways with soft carpets for a barren yet sophisticated appeal.
Another possible consideration for hallway wall lighting planning is the usage of task lights and spotlights. There may be some spots on your hallway that you want added brightness at certain times, like when you want to fetch some things on the coat rack or find keys on the hallway drawers. For these cases, wall lights with adjustable heads or arms can be efficient wall lighting solutions. Simply direct the lamp heads or pull the wall light’s arms to a specified location, then put it back to its original position when you’re done.
Many homeowners also hang their favourite art pieces in hallways for guest viewing during holidays and special occasions. If you’re among this group, you can purchase picture wall lights and put them above your favoured artworks, similar to how museums attach necessary lighting for convenient appreciation of the famous pieces of art. You can also do the same for open shelves on your hallways, where you showcase trophies and medals of your family members or precious books from your collection.
If you don’t have specific items to display on your hallways but want an artistic effect on your hallway, you can use your chosen wall lights to create a stunning play of light. There are many samples of wall lighting effects online that you can take as inspiration to create your very own hallway wall light art. For immediate examples, see how the Turn Wall Light Range produce adaptable visual patterns with just some adjustments and correct positioning of wall lights.
Suppose multiple wall lights aren’t your taste. In that case, you can also use charming replica wall lights and decorative wall lights as statement pieces for your hallway and establish that artistic appeal you long for.
If you desire multiple hallway wall lights, regardless of whether you want an artistic effect or not, the general advice is to install them at evenly spaced placements. Not only does this make the place symmetrical, but it also efficiently considers the lumens output and size of the wall light fixtures. However, for long hallways, even spacing might make it seem like an airport runway. Staggering the lighting is one effective way to solve this.
Sometimes, wall lights aren’t just enough, especially for poorly lit hallways. Hence, you can add pendant lights, chandeliers, and flush mount ceiling lights to add brightness in the hallways. For a better layering of light while maintaining the aesthetic appeal and theme of the place, choose lights that are part of a set collection. Many wall light designs in our collection have pendant light, chandelier, and ceiling light counterparts for a complete and stylish appeal on your hallways.
Last Concerns Before Installation
Hallway wall lights should be installed in suitable positions. They’re usually fixed on three general levels: near ground, eye level, or overhead. Near ground hallway wall lights function similarly to step lights, illuminating the pathway for you to safely walk across. Overhead hallway wall lighting is frequently used as accent lights, helping create the desired hallway ambience and highlighting decorative elements in the place. Wall lights installed at eye level can have many purposes: adding a featured statement piece for viewing, providing directional or task light, delivering sufficient general lighting, or enhancing the atmosphere in the hallway. If you choose to fit the wall light at an eye level in the hallway, just be mindful of the possible glare that exposed bulbs might introduce to anyone who passes by.
Whatever styling ideas you decide to pursue a glamorous hallway wall lighting plan, always make sure that your chosen wall light fixtures won’t interfere with the safe hallway passage. Hence, it’s recommended to pick wall lights that won’t jut out too much. However, suppose your chosen hallway wall light has long protruding or bulging parts. In that case, it’s best to install it above human height or in the central part of your hallway rather than the hallway ends to lessen accidental contact resulting in injuries.
