Plug-In Wall Lights

With plug-in wall sconces, you don't have to be (or hire) a master electrician in order to have bright, functional light on your wall. Anywhere there's a nearby electrical outlet, even a layperson can easily install a plug-in wall light. Hang it on the wall, plug it in and you're good to go. Pin-up kits are usually offered as an option to direct wire installations but, with rigid cord covers matching the wall plate, still present a finished, permanent look. As such, the convenience of plug-in wall light fixtures is well-matched by their sophisticated style.

Where Plug-In Wall Lighting Works Best

While useful in any home, a plug-in wall sconce is particularly ideal in an apartment/rental, both for its easy transfer and minimal wall damage. Use in the bedroom (especially flanking the bed) or hallway or to illuminate a reading area in the living room. In the bedroom, you'll love the ease of an adjustable plug-in wall light to conveniently act as reading light wherever you would like to sit and catch up on your favorite book. Likewise, in the living room, swing arm plug-in wall lights can find their home next to the sofa, providing convenient task-oriented illumination or acting as a source of general, ambient light. In any room you choose to plug-in your sconce, as soon as you want to position the wall lamp somewhere else, simply unplug it and move it to its new destination.

A Plug-In Wall Sconce for Every Style

Whether your home's decor follows a purely traditional style or fits something that is modeled after the 1950s, you are sure to find the perfect plug-in sconce here. In classic and traditionally styled spaces, you'll love the bronze-finished plug-in sconces from Hudson Valley Lighting or Global Views. In spaces celebrating clean-lined contemporary design, look to the modern fixtures by WAC Lighting and Tech Lighting. Energy efficient homes benefit from LED plug-in wall lights by Cerno and finally, if you love mid-century modern and retro decor, you'll want to check out the offering from Jonathan Adler.
