Wall lights provide an alternative lighting angle, subtly making your home that little bit more interesting, and can be used as part of a larger lighting scheme. Lighting is about providing light for function but also for creating an atmosphere, so you should have both in mind when you are shopping for lighting. Wall lights are particularly useful in specialist areas of the home where regular activities take place, such as kitchens and bathrooms. That’s not to say that wall lights can’t be used in all areas of the home. Here at Wayfair.co.uk we have wall lights to suit every area of your abode and our collection has been divided up into useful categories to help you choose what’s best for you and help you bring light into your home.
Categories of Wall Lights Wall flush lights can dramatically change the appearance of a room. The light is typically directed up the wall bringing soft and comforting tones to a room. These wall lights are pretty versatile and can be used well in most living rooms, bedrooms, and even dining rooms. Wall flush lights are more about function than style and can therefore be used as the main light source for a room.
Wall spotlights are perfect for open plan areas such as large kitchen-dining areas. A spotlight can highlight a specific feature as it is a very clear source of light. Many of our spotlights can be redirected so that you can create different moods; by turning the spotlight upwards you create a softer, more romantic, mood.
There is also a category for outdoor wall lights: a collection of lights that are specifically designed to be more resistant and waterproof against the elements so that you can light up the outside of your home making it safer and also visually more attractive. They’re also very handy for those moments when you’re stood at your front door, rummaging for your keys.
Swing arm and reading lights are perfect for placing by your bed or desk. They can be adjusted to redirect the light to where you want it, so that you won’t be straining those eyes when reading or working. When placed by your bed, these lights will also save you from getting out of bed to switch the light on.
Bathroom wall lights create a modern look and are handy for lighting up mirrors, which is important for bathroom routines such as shaving and applying makeup. They will also add a modern touch to any bathroom and make those tiles shine.
Candle wall lights and picture lights are definitely decorative lighting and are all about injecting style into your home. Candle wall lights will add elegance to any warm living space, such as a living room, dining room, or bedroom. Picture lights are placed above pictures so that you can show off the artwork in your home and accent the colours of the pictures.
Cabinet lighting is to be used in the kitchen to light up your work surfaces when you are preparing those delicious meals. These lights are highly functional and will also add another dynamic to your kitchen space.
