Wall Lighting Buying Guide

From lighting a long hallway to brightening a bathroom, wall lighting is a much relied on form of illumination that offers options in a range of sizes and functions.

Types of Wall Lighting

Types of Wall Lighting

Most people assume that all wall lighting comes in the form of sconces. While single-bulb and multilight sconces compose much of wall lighting, other options also light up walls. Miniature wall lighting fixtures fit perfectly in small spaces, while swing arms offer great options for bedrooms and work spaces. Track lighting adds glow to more problematic spaces, and picture wall lights accent decorative highlights. Here’s a quick guide to wall lighting options.

Miniature Fixtures

Diminutive spaces require downsized wall lights, which come thanks to miniature versions. The small versions work well in closets or clustered together in work spaces, such as laundry rooms.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As with virtually every other type of light fixture, wall lighting fixtures should be evaluated based on a number of factors. Size and style are always concerns, but so are how the fixture works with controls and dimmers. Because most wall lighting fixtures operate with a switch, review installation requirements and consider the total effect of lighting in the room as you combine wall lighting with other light sources. Here’s how to evaluate your wall lighting choices.

Size and Style

Wall lighting fixtures need to be chosen in proportion to both the size of the room and the wall space the fixtures will occupy. Fixture style affects how the light is perceived and how well the wall lighting works with the decor and other light sources in the room.

Installation

Most wall lighting fixtures are hardwired, so installation works best in a large remodeling or new construction project. If you’re just swapping a new fixture for an old one, you may be able to reuse the electrical connections.

Lighting Combination

On their own, wall lighting fixtures probably will not sufficiently light a whole space. Use them for task or accent lighting and make sure to adequately provide enough overall illumination with other light sources.

Controls and Dimmers

Many wall lighting fixtures are switch-activated and some can be dimmed. Very small picture lights may possess an on/off switch on the fixture. Check that placement and control of your favorite wall lighting fixtures will not be problematic.
