Wall light fixtures such as sconces and wall lamps are often overlooked when lighting purchases are made. Why is this? Some may be hesitant of the installation factor - wall fixtures need to be mounted and may need minor electrical work as well. With floor and table lamps one need simply plop the light down plug it in and voila - let there be light. So yes there is a little extra work or installation cost (for you non do-it-yourselfers) as opposed to other lighting options. But there are also some major advantages wall lighting has over standard lamps. Floor and table space for one. Everyone wants more room for family photos trinkets and even plants on their end tables and wall lighting is a great way to get this space while still adequately lighting a room. Second with floor and table lamps come unsightly and often dangerous (especially if you have kids running around) electrical cords. Properly installed wall lights are hard-wired and all wiring is hidden behind your walls giving your room an ultra-clean look. Let's take a look at a few popular wall lighting options shall we.
In some cases spot lights are also used to bring attention to specific areas of the living room such as the loop created by sofa sets around the TV unit. Corner end tables that come with a living room set are good for creating a platform for decorative lampshades that will lit the entire sofa set area for some extra lighting.
When it comes to lighting the bathroom and kitchen you obviously want something that provides good light to work in but also packs something of a style punch. There are many flush mount lights that fill these roles perfectly and they will typically cost anywhere from $40 to $75.
It is also important for you to know the exact height of the living room where you wish to install the crystal chandelier. The chandelier must not exceed 30 inches above your head. Also ensure not to hang the chandelier too high for it may look dwarfed. Another thing that you need to consider while choosing the crystal chandelier is that you need to go for a one which is about 20%-30% of the width of the living room.
the next level of these lights is the kind you normally find in an entry or hall way area. These lights are more powerful and since they are in more obvious locations they need to be more stylish. These fixtures cost anywhere from 425 up to $75 depending on size and style.
Similar to the sconce but possessing a personality all its own is the wall lamp. This wall fixture distinguishes itself by generally having the ability to swivel and swing on a jointed arm. The wall lamp thus juts out farther from the wall than a standard sconce. The swinging arm makes the wall lamp perfect for living rooms and bedrooms or anywhere one does a lot of reading. The adjustable nature of these fixtures puts you in control of the lighting more so than most any other light fixture you can buy.
