Walls aren't wallflowers when dressed to the nines with the right lights.
Why We Love Wall Lights
Wall lights can instantly turn a flat wall into something worth noticing. Specifically designed to add ambient lighting, more of today's wall sconces are also specifically shaped to add dramatic up and down lighting effects, really adding depth and structure to a space. Adjustable picture lights draw attention to a painting or work of art, while glass sconces can provide a splash of color and artistry and become works of art themselves.
Where Wall Lamps Work Best
Wall lamps can go pretty much everywhere from the bedroom to the bathroom (see our selection of bathroom lighting), but wall lamps are especially important in areas where food is being enjoyed or conversation is taking place, like the dining area and living room. Most wall light fixtures can be dimmed to provide a more intimate atmosphere in these spaces, too, adding to the overall experience of hanging with family and friends. Light dimming switches from Legrand Adorne offer a variety of stylish options that work with most wall lighting fixtures.
Other Great Options
Consider checking out reading lights for focused, directional and adjustable illumination in the living room or right next to the bed. Many sconces also come with pin-up kits that are easy to install and plug right in to the wall.
