Wall lights are often overlooked in the lighting design process, but they have much to offer, both as practical and functional lighting. Here are some examples from customers' projects.
A traditional antique wall light makes a very special decorative feature in a dining room or drawing room and will encourage people to sit down as the light they offer is very intimate. In a bathroom, we can IP rate most wall lights, antique and modern, so you don't need to be restricted to ugly lights! Call for more info.
Wall lights make a lovely addition to almost any room, from practical, directional spots in a kitchen, to ornate gilt fittings in a grand entrance hall, they add another dimension to the light. However, there is one situation where they are essential; when faced with low ceiling heights. It is incredible how many customers come through our door having just had a room rewired or a new extension and need a ceiling fitting with a tiny drop. If it’s not too late, we send them away to have a friendly chat with the electrician! A ceiling pendant and a low ceiling does not make for a happy partnership, particularly if your family has tall genes.
Wall Lights are good! In a sitting room, low level lighting from wall lights, table and standard lamps will encourage people to sit and can give off a very gentle ambient light, making your guests feel welcome and comfortable. Similarly in a dinning room, some decorative wall lights will give a lovely ambient light when you guests are seated around the table. In the kitchen, they can light areas that other lighting cannot reach and, set low next to the bed, they can make a practical alternative to reading lamps in your bedroom.
