Walls aren't wallflowers when dressed to the nines with the right modern lighting.
Why We Love Wall Lights
Wall lights can instantly turn a flat wall into something decorative and worth noticing. Specifically designed to add ambient lighting in a variety of spaces, more of today's wall sconces and wall lamps are specifically shaped ot add dramatic up and downlighting effects, really adding depth and structure to a room. Adjustable picture and display lights draw attention to a painting or work of art, while art glass sconces can provide a splash of color and artistry and become works of art themselves.
Where Wall Lighting Works Best
Wall lights and sconces can find their home in nearly any space, in both residential and commercial locations. In the bedroom, you'll find a wall-mounted reading light is an ideal choice for focused task lighting or a pair of sconces on the wall will complement the overhead lighting from a chandelier, flushmount or ceiling fan with lights. Contemporary bathrooms benefit from the style of vanity bath bars and wet or damp rated wall sconces, available in multiple shapes to accommodate nearly any bathroom's layout. Wall uplights are perfect for hallway lighting and in the living room, you'll love highlighting family photos or works of art with a picture light. In the dining room, wall lamps provide a layering element to your lighting that is immediately noticeable by your dinner guests and you will like illuminating your kitchen counters with under cabinet lighting. And provide a warm welcome to your guests with wall lights in the entryway or foyer. Finally, in restaurants, retail stores, hotels and professional offices, wall lights can offer the final decorative touch your customers will love.
