Lighting is a crucial aspect, essential to enhance the appearance and feel of your space. Wall lights provide a welcoming environment and their brighter illumination can create a cozy room that can be utilized in any season. Most often, they are used to illuminate dark areas and narrow corners or to highlight walkways in the house, wall lights are an effective addition that can save space, provide an atmosphere, and can be operated by dimmer switches that decide the mood of a space.
Wall lighting is an excellent feature for any room in the home. The most popular locations to place lighting fixtures include hallways and landings, which create a warm entry point to your home and bring light into different rooms. Also, wall lights make great living areas when they are paired with ceiling fixtures, table lights, and floor lamps to create a “lightscape” making sure there’s always light that is appropriate for a particular situation or mood. In addition, using lighting fixtures in bedrooms rather than traditional table lamps not only reduces the space at the bedside table but also gives a fun contemporary look.
The location of the wall light is crucial as there are a variety of factors to take into consideration prior to installing:
Height is a good thing – try to not install ceiling lights at which you can step over them or at in the same level as an exposed bulb. Installing lights about six feet above the floor is an approximate measure, however the size of the family member, the ceiling and the dimensions of the fixture will play a role in making this decision!
Spacing: One fixture every 6-8 feet is sufficient but you may need to leave a little greater or lesser space between fixtures according to the lumen output of the bulb, or the size of your space. Large spaces might require additional fixtures to achieve an identical illumination. Also, it is important to consider the direction of the wall lighting prior to installing fixtures – often, they are arranged in a way that they do not align horizontally or symmetrically across a hallway creates an unnatural arrangement, however having a set of lighting fixtures in a narrow space that aren’t aligned may look strange. It’s all about personal taste and is important to take into consideration the fixture you’ve chosen for the space you’re planning to use.
Rooms that are narrower or stairwells that have large traffic flow are best lit with mounted fixtures that have their profile low and don’t extend over the area Make sure you measure the depth of the fitting before buying to make sure it’s suitable for your needs.

Plug and switch?
Many of our wooden wall lights are available as “hard wired” or “plug and switch’ variants But what exactly does that mean?
We define ‘hard wired wall lights as ones that require wiring to the mains supply of an electrician. That is they’re not plugged into a plug socket and do not come with an unidirectional cable and flicker switches (like an ordinary table light).
Our plug and switch solutions are ready to be connected to the main power source (no connection block) with grey fabric flex with an inline switch as well as an UK plug. No electrician needed.
What are the advantages of each?
The distinction between our hard wired and plug and switch wall lights is mostly aesthetic. The advantage of our hard wired’ wall light is that, once installed there isn’t any visible flex that is attached to the light which needs plugging into an outlet. The wall lights can be operated using an electrical wall switch or an dimmer switch that you choose.
The advantage of the plug and switch’ choice is the ease of installation – there is no need for an electrician to set up the fitting, and the lights on the wall can be positioned wherever they can reach the plug socket. They operate with the inline switch, which is already attached to the flexible. A plug and switch wall light is designed for rentals.
