Indoor Wall lights are lighting fixtures that quite literally mount onto walls. They come in a variety of designs, colors, and sizes, but all should have the ability to attach to a vertical surface. Instead of providing general illumination, many wall lights are directional - in other words, pointed up or down. This gives a very dramatic look to your home.
Indoor Wall Lighting Styles
When you have decided what purpose your indoor lights will serve, it’s time to consider the various styles that are available. The main consideration is what style will best complement your home’s interior while still giving you the type of lighting you need.
Modern / Contemporary: The modern lighting style is sleek and has very clean lines, geometric patterns, circles, and ovals. It has smooth surfaces that have very little if any, decorative detailing. The strong but simple lines create the perfect focal point in a modern home. Contemporary wall lights come in various shapes, sizes, and materials. Here is a quick round-up of the most popular and common types of wall sconces:
Flush mount wall light
Semi-flush mount wall light
Recessed light sconce
Lantern-type wall sconce
Traditional: If you have a traditional style home, of course, you want the indoor lighting to match. A lot of lantern wall lights could be a good match. The frosted or etched glass adds to the traditional feel of lantern style lights. But you don’t have to limit yourself to lantern lights if you have a traditional home.
Mid-Century Modern: In some regions of the country, Mid-Century Modern is all the rage. Its retro feel is the overriding tone. If you have this type of home, then, the lighting and style of your interior space are especially important. You would want wall-mounted lighting that fits with your home’s overall style.
Industrial: If you prefer an industrial look, there’s indoor wall lighting for that too, from bare, exposed bulbs to curved metal and sometimes even caged shades. This style is commonly used in spaces with exposed structures like brick or duct work.
How to Choose the Best Indoor Wall Lights: Size, Finishes, and Installation Options
With so many indoor wall lighting options, you may have a hard time choosing just one. So how do you choose the best wall light for your home? You can start by going through the considerations listed below:
Purpose: It is essential that you first determine what your purpose for buying an indoor wall light is. This would largely depend on assessing your needs, putting down your design and décor plan on paper, and gauging what kind of wall lighting you need.
Size: Be mindful of all sizing dimensions including width, depth, height, and even weight of a wall lighting fixture you are interested in. You will have to choose based on the dimensions of the space you plan to place the fixture and how much coverage you need from the light itself.
Positioning: Consider the positioning of the indoor wall light and its effects on style, general lighting of your home’s interior as well as the symmetry of design. You might want the lighting to be higher in hallways or if your ceilings are high, however as a general rule, you should consider placing your wall lights approximately 60” (or 150cms) higher than floor level for most spaces, with an exception in the bedroom, as you may consider siting them much lower for bedside lighting.
Colours: Look for indoor wall lights that will complement your existing colour palette. We have indoor wall lights available in a variety of colours including but not limited to black, white, grey, brass, and copper.
Brightness: The brightness of the indoor wall lights are all important factors for consideration once you establish your unique needs. Most modern wall lamps are dimmable, or at least offer you the option to install a separate dimmer switch. Lights with dimming capabilities allow you to experiment with their output – adjusting the intensity according to the time of the day and the tone you wish to set in the said space.
Task Lighting: It is paramount when performing specific tasks. Indoor wall lights are becoming increasingly popular to see used as reading lights next to beds.
Ambient lighting: Radiates a comfortable level of brightness without glare and allows you to see and walk safely. Indoor wall lights are usually used for decorative purposes, providing ambient or accent lighting rather than focused, bright lighting.
Accent Lighting: Adds drama to an indoor space by creating visual interest.
Installation Options: Some indoor wall lights are fairly simple to install while some others may have a really complex assembly and installation process. While you will get an exhaustive user manual or installation guide from the manufacturer or seller, it is recommended that you get the lamp installed with the help of a lighting professional.
