In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the basic information homeowners should know about interior wall lights and selecting the ideal ones for their homes.

Types of Wall Lights

The three major wall lights we offer at Littman Bros Lighting include wall sconces, vanity lighting and picture lamps. These lights can be used strategically to make any room in your home feel warm and inviting. Here’s a quick breakdown of what each of those are and how each is best used in your home:

Wall Sconces

Wall sconces are a lighting fixture mounted on the wall that comes in a variety of colors, designs, styles and illumination options. They can be fixed in a single position or you can opt for a swing arm sconce, which can move and serves more as a task lighting option.

Our experts suggest installing wall sconces in your hallways, foyers and dining rooms, as their main intention is to provide ambiance and mood lighting on top of functional illumination.

Vanity Lighting

Vanity interior wall lights are wall light options specific to your home’s bathrooms, and they are typically installed in conjunction with ceiling lights. They add a soft illumination to a room, and they can be used to either create a relaxing ambiance lighting or to provide ample task lighting for your space.

Our experts suggest installing vanity lighting over the sinks in your bathroom.

Picture Lamps

Picture lamps are used to place a light on photos or art pieces in your home. Our experts suggest installing this lighting solution on any wall art you want to be highlighted at all times.

Where can you put them?

Interior wall lights are great in their versatility, and there are so many different kinds of rooms you can feature these types of interior wall light fixtures in. We think this type of lighting looks great in pretty much any room, but here’s a complete list of rooms in your home you can consider installing them:

  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Dining room
  • Living room
  • Foyer/entryway
  • Hallways
  • Stairways
  • Next to a fireplace
  • Basement
  • Outdoors

Why should you use them?

Interior wall lights are an effortless way to make a room feel brighter and larger as well as add your personal flair to the rooms in your home. They’re functional because they balance any ceiling light sources and can target more specific areas in a room, making interior wall lights a phenomenal source of task lighting as well. You can also combine this type of lighting with other lighting solutions to create the ideal atmosphere for your rooms.

Whether your home’s style is modern, contemporary, traditional, minimalist or something different, you’re bound to find interior wall lights that will match your home’s overall design.
