Wall lighting is a beautiful and classic way to illuminate your home, be it Sydney or Brisbane. But many people struggle with knowing how and where to install wall lights in their home. Here, Connect Furniture offers you a few pointers for lighting your home beautifully!
Wall lights create a beautiful, ambient glow when placed inside or outside of your home. There are many kinds of wall lighting and downlights, and choosing the right one can mean the difference in an awkward appearance and the perfect complement to your existing lighting and décor. Here are a few of Connect Furniture’s best tips for choosing your perfect wall lights:Where to Install
If you’re going for warm, ambient lighting, your ceiling lights or other lights will need to be placed at certain locations and intervals throughout your home. The following is a good rule of thumb:
- 60 inches - just over 150 centimetres - from the ground should be where the base of your fixture sits.
- 6 feet - just over 180 centimetres - is how far apart fixtures should be from one another and other light sources in the room.
Dispersing your lights evenly throughout the room will ensure even, comfortable lighting that doesn’t create glare or leave dark spots in corners.
Which Kind of Wall Light to Choose
There are several types of wall lighting available. Some of the most popular can be divided into major categories. These include:
- Wall brackets
Deciding between these types of wall lights means knowing which type of lighting you’re looking for. Wall sconces distribute light evenly from each source, while torchiere typically cast light upward. Lanterns are used outdoors for spotlighting and illuminating specific areas, while wall brackets are more often used in areas like indoor hallways and other spaces. Knowing what you need will help you select what you want.
