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.
Floor lamps and table lamps should be dispersed about the room such that separate from any other lighting they can reasonably light the room for most occasions. The room size will ultimately dictate the number of lamps but if you have some other light source three lamps is a good number to consider - one being a floor lamp. Keep in mind that dark lamp shades really restrict the lamp's overall light output.
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.
The small globe fixtures that are perfect for lighting closets are the least expensive type of lighting and can be purchased for as little as $10 These are not powerful but they serve the purpose of providing light in a closet just fine. If your closet is not wired with a light switch there are battery powered versions of these lights available.
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.
Fan lights provide your home with unique light. If you think you should use fan lights you should remember that you need to use special bulbs that are resistant to the fan's vibration.
