Why We Love Indoor Wall Lights
Your bare wall's best friend. Indoor wall lights are the ideal fixtures for all you multi-taskers out there. In one fell swoop, they both dress up your bare walls and provide a variety of functional lighting effects. There are clean and simple modern wall sconces that will blend seamlessly into the background. Or you can find intricate, ultra-contemporary pieces that are every bit as artistic and eye-catching as a wall-hung painting, designed to attract attention to themselves as much as to the spaces they illuminate.
Where Interior Wall Sconces Work Best
Indoor wall sconces work anywhere 1) you need mid-level ambience to complete proper light layering in a room, or 2) floor space is at a premium. In regards to the former, indoor wall sconces work particularly well along with chandeliers or pendant lamps in dining rooms or in living rooms when supplemented by portable floor lamps and table lamps. With the latter, wall sconces are also great for illuminating narrow hallways or stairwells. And finally, add an interior sconce to your office area for an additional touch of light that will work well with desk and task lamps in the space.
An Indoor Sconce for Every Style
The wall sconces found in this selection can appeal to a large variety of interior decorating styles. From traditional homes with classic lighting choices to spaces boasting with the most contemporary designs, you'll find that an indoor wall sconce can easily work its way into the mix. Sconces by George Kovacs are a safe bet for transitional homes and you will appreciate any of the designs in the Kichler collection. Introduce a contemporary look with wall lights by Arturo Alvarez or make a statement with the Italian-made offering from Artemide. And if you appreciate the benefits of energy efficiency, look to the LED indoor sconces from Modern Forms or the dweLED collection from WAC.
Choosing the Best Indoor Wall Light
Selecting the right sconce for your space requires an understanding of the existing decorative elements in the room, the size of light fixture you need, the intended purpose and its light bulb requirement. Begin your search by finding colors and finishes that will appropriately accommodate your existing decor. Next, refine your options by sizing dimensions like height, width and depth. Pay careful attention to those interior sconces that extend from the wall because they will inevitably require more space. You also need to determine whether you need a sconce for general, ambient illumination or bright, focused lighting that can directly assist you with tasks. Finally, check the wall lamp's bulb requirement to make certain you are prepared with the right light bulb at installation and review its lumens chart to understand just how bright it will be.

Make things easy and convenient with a switched wall sconce. Wall lights with switches allow their user to simply turn them on and off at a moment's notice. They are either hardwired into an established electrical system or come with a pin-up (plug-in) kit to make them extra versatile. And if you love designs of this selection of indoor wall sconces as much as we do, you'll want to have them outside as well, creating a warm welcome on the front porch or providing ample light for the patio.
