IT would be a missed opportunity to light a room using just an overheard source of light. The light emitted would be softer and more subdued than needed for certain tasks or times of day. Conversely, the single beam from one spotlight would provide a dramatic highlight yet would mostly leave you in darkness. For overall illumination, this would be a very poor attempt.
For each room of a residential setting it is obviously vital to provide an ambient source of light, this will be typically located in the centre of a room. To support this, it is advisable to use wall lights to aid you in completing different tasks or create a low key and relaxing ambience. Wall lights can be used as a task feature and to aid in late night reading or for another decorative source of lighting.
Where to use different kinds of wall lights:
- BEDROOM – Bedside lights can be perfect for unwinding in the evening or night when you don’t need such a spread of light. Attach a light to either side of your bed and use for bedtime reading or convenience in the mornings. It is beneficial for these lights to be directional for ease of use.
- LIVING ROOM – Place a light each side of the sofa and turn off the main source of ambient light for a less intense, more relaxed method of lighting.
- BATHROOM – The bathroom is an area that, depending on the size, you may need more or less wall lights. At its core, bathrooms or wet rooms ultimately have to be a safe place so the lighting needs to support this necessity. Wall plaster lights can be useful in providing upwards or downwards sources of light that shine in both directions.
- OUTDOOR - Use to add dramatic highlights, particularly effective when placed in a front or back garden. The brightness of the single beam will contrast against the dark night sky.
