Wall uplights are one of the best ways to add drama to nearly any space. Their shapes form and focus light in a very specific direction, allowing light to pour out and up in a fascinating display. There are many different types of shades that create various effects, and the styles range from classic to contemporary. Many of the designs are available with multiple lights if the space requires it, and some are ADA Compliant and keep a low profile.
Where Wall Uplighting Works Best
Place uplight wall sconces anywhere you wish to make a strong first impression and create a dramatic setting for the evening's activities. Contemporary wall lamps give a modern dining room a chic edge. Place these sconces on a light switch dimmer for a more romantic or relaxed mood. And you may want to install wall uplights along a hallway, entryway or foyer area for an added element of safety along with an attractive, dramatic effect.
Other Great Options
For more atmospheric lighting, opt for under cabinet lighting--this provides ambient downlighting for the kitchen. Under cabinet and under counter lighting from Adorne by Legrand or WAC Lighting will add the perfect touch of contemporary accent lighting to your kitchen. And if you need an uplight in the living room, be sure to browse the selection of uplight floor lamps.
