Why We Love Wall Lights

Specifically designed to add ambient lighting in a variety of spaces, wall sconces and wall lamps are shaped to add dramatic up and downlighting effects, 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 become statements themselves.

Types of Wall Lights

Discover beautifully designed indoor wall sconces like rustic, wrought-iron fixtures you can use indoors or out. Find uplights that cast dramatic shadows on the wall, spotlights for task lighting, bedside reading lights, energy efficient LED wall lights, recessed wall lights and more.

Where Wall Lighting Works Best

In the bedroom, a wall mounted reading light is an ideal choice for focused task lighting. Bathrooms benefit from vanity bath bars and wet or damp rated wall sconces. Wall uplights are perfect for hallway lighting and you'll love highlighting family photos or works of art with a picture light. Finally, in restaurants, retail stores, and hotels, wall lights can offer a final decorative touch.

How to Choose the Best Wall Light Fixtures

Before choosing a new wall light for your home, you'll want to consider a few important questions.

  • What is the purpose?

    Do you need sconces to illuminate dim areas of the home or to act as decorative pieces of art on the wall? Understanding your need for wall lighting is essential to finding the perfect fixtures.

  • What size is best?

    Be mindful of common wall light size dimensions like height, width (how far the light protrudes from the wall) and length, as each plays an important role in the fixtures you choose.

  • What about installing multiple wall lamps?

    If you need multiple fixtures, be considerate of how far apart they are installed. The typical recommendation is to be 60 inches from the floor and at least 6 feet apart from each other.

  • What are the best mounting options for sconces?

    This assortment ranges from hard-wired wall sconces that mount directly to the wall with no exposed electrical wiring to easy-to-use plug-in lamps. While the hard-wired sconces are operated with a typical wall switch, the plug-in options have a simple on/off switch. Depending on your application, you should have no problem finding just the right fixture.

  • How bright do I want my wall lights to be?

    Look at the light's to get the best idea of how bright it will be. You may also consider the required bulb type to identify the fixture's light output. If you have any questions about the wall lights and sconces featured here, please call our lighting experts at (866) 604-7784.

Other Considerations for Wall-Mounted Lights

If you're in need of outdoor wall sconces for the deck, patio, front porch or flanking the garage, you'll need to make sure the fixtures are UL rated for wet or damp locations. UL Listings are a safety label and give you an idea of how much water a light can be exposed to.
