Linear wall lights are elongated illuminators that make an impression with their broad light span.
These lights are often composed of multiple light sources that can radiate lengthy hallways and expansive counters with focused bright shine or scattered lighting. They can also serve as localised lighting on office and reading tables, giving you close and intense brightness to aid in fine detail work and boost concentration.

Picking the Best Linear Wall Light For Your Circumstances
There are many considerations when choosing wall lights for home and office spaces. Among all of them, it is noteworthy to ponder the following five factors: (1) location and positioning, (2) lighting purpose and effect, (3) size and style, (4) existing decors and furniture, and (5) cost and budget. Each of these aspects demands a clear answer, for they affect one another and thus must be considered connecting entities.
Here's a sample scenario to give you an idea of how these factors influence your decision-making. Suppose you would like to install a linear wall light for your rustic-styled dining hall - that partially answers the first factor. Now, why would you suddenly have such a notion? Maybe because your dining hall is a bit bland and you want to spice up the things a little bit with a new wall light, or perhaps you feel something is missing in the room and think that a wall light can supplement it. Whichever case it is, that would answer half of the second aspect to consider.
Upon scanning the space, you found that the ideal location for your linear wall light is opposite your dining hall’s only window, above a counter table with a flower vase. This solves the positioning aspect of the first factor. Now, you notice that the amount of natural light is weak in that area, and you want to brighten up the place a little bit. Hence, you purposely chose a linear wall light that emits a strong yet scattered light, which completes the answer to the second factor.
The size and style of your linear wall light must be considered together with the existing decors and furniture in the space. A wooden vintage-style linear wall light that is slightly smaller than the counter table below it would be the best complement to the aura in a rustic-styled dining hall full of timber furniture. The proportions of the newly added wall light won't throw the balance in the area off, and its design matches the surroundings, so you’re eager to find such wall light.
Now that you have an ideal image of your wall light, feel free to browse among tons of linear wall lights available in your local area and online. Make sure to set filters according to your preferences to narrow down your search results. Lastly, only ponder on the linear wall lights priced on or below your budget line to minimise excessive and unplanned expenses.
On Installing Linear Wall Lights
Most linear wall lights are installed vertically or horizontally due to the conventional ideas by their owners and the products’ design limits. However, have you ever considered installing them, perhaps, diagonally or in sets? Furthermore, although you might have probably felt it in any sense, you probably aren’t aware that lines, and by extension linear wall lights, evoke different meanings depending on its presentation style.
To give you ideas on how to install linear wall lights in your room in a way that its appeal coincides with your preferences, here are a few considerations you can follow and what each of them can add to your space:
Installing linear wall lights vertically: Depending on the environment, vertically installed linear wall lines can produce a cut or a flow in the space. This is because vertical lines symbolise towering height and length, creating a mood of loftiness and grandeur. The extended standing illusion a vertical line invokes can create a divide between different walls and furniture, all while seemingly connecting the floor to the ceiling. Such an appeal can be imitated by a pillar-length linear wall light or multiple linear wall lights bonded from one end to another.
Installing linear wall lights horizontally: Unlike vertically-installed linear wall lights, installing linear wall lights horizontally promotes relaxation and calmness. In some ways, it also induces a flow, directing the eyes from one side to another. Horizontally-installed linear wall lights also simulate a sense of balance and organisation.
Installing linear wall lights diagonally: Diagonal lines are famous for creating dynamic movement and direction. Hence, diagonally-installed linear wall lights are often defined as producing an illusion of speed and instability, always in motion and neither resting nor standing upright. Moreover, installing linear wall lights diagonally can also invite a sense of playfulness and positivity, making it a suitable feature wall light of the space.
Apart from these, there are also specific implications when you choose to install linear wall lights with strong or fine lines:
Installing thick linear wall lights: Thick lines are never missing when portraying power and strength. Therefore, wall lights with such designs can introduce energy and boldness into dull and barren areas. In particular, linear wall lights styled with thick lines, whether as a solo light or in a group display, are striking statement pieces in living and dining spaces. Just be careful in as it’s easy to overdo styling and create an imbalance in the room’s visual elements when using wide linear wall lights.
Installing thin linear wall lights: Wall lights designed with slim lines create a sense of delicateness and tranquillity. Unlike thick lines, slender lines bring comfort, peace, and a subtle allure to those who perceive it. Thus, thin linear wall lights are believed to be great additions for private rooms like bedrooms and home offices.
