How to position a wall lamp to illuminate a home perfectly?

by Nayan Sharma Online Furniture Shopping Store

A wall lamp or sconce is a light fixture mounted on a wall. It brightens and highlights the beautiful features around the house. It also adds character and makes the place more inviting. Today, you can conveniently shop online for wall-mounted lights in various styles, shapes, designs, materials, etc., at home décor stores. 

However, if you are clueless about where to place them around your house to illuminate it perfectly, the following pointers might offer a better understanding: 

Accentuate the art 

Probably the easiest way to highlight the art pieces around your home is to place a wall lamp above it. You can also mount the lighting on the side. Such a set-up will accentuate the piece and prevent it from getting lost in the background. You can also use the same trick with artefacts. 

To make a statement even with the light switched off, choose a lamp in an interesting shape or pick one made of coloured glass. Brands offer several such lights, enabling you to pick any to reflect your décor choices. 

Decorate your walls 

These lights offer an excellent way to decorate your walls. Depending on your desired style, you can choose decorative pieces or go for minimal lamps.  

Ensure task lighting 

Whether reading at the study table or working on a bed study table, you require good lighting. Hence, if you have a dedicated space for work which gets dark or is not illuminated properly, place a wall light next to the desk. It not only provides helpful task lighting but also prevents strain on your eyes. It also minimises visual clutter and keeps your desk tidy. 

Wall lamps also offer excellent task lighting in the bathroom. You can place them on both sides or over the mirror. However, when illuminating the bathroom, ensure you keep water safety in mind. 

Beside an armchair 

If you want to create a reading corner in your living room, you can easily invest in a cosy armchair and a side table. Then, illuminate the area with a well-placed wall lamp and build the perfect nook to read your favourite books. However, install the light lower than the head height to make sure it functions seamlessly as a task light. 

Highlight a focal point 

When you have a focal point in your living room, such as a television, it is beneficial to highlight the area. To do this, place two wall sconces, one on either side of the focal point. This way, you can simply keep these lights on while watching television and enjoy a cosy lighting scheme.
