Which Wall Light Design is the Best For Your Home?

Wall lights are also known as sconces. They are stylish light accessories that can make your home glow. Wall lights are great because they don’t take up space on a counter, table or floor.

However, using wall lights in your space means sacrificing the flexibility that comes with other lighting options, in terms of mobility. This means that you will not be able to move the sconce around once it is installed.

When selecting lighting fixtures, it is important to figure out what style or design you should choose for your home. You could use the help of a lighting specialist in Malaysia, such as Lightmakers to help you figure this out.

There are many types of wall light designs in Malaysia. They come as Up Light (cast light upward), Down Light (cast light downward), and Up & Down Light or All-round Light (cast light in both directions).

Let’s look at which wall light design is best for your home.

1. Flush-mounted Wall Washers / Half-moon

This wall light design is the most common in the market. They are usually small, compact and tight against the wall. They come in a wide variety of styles and finishes.

They can only be used as an accent light – therefore cannot be used as a primary source of light. It gives the impression that the entire wall is covered with light. If you are looking to light up an entire area, this may not be the best option.

2. Wallchieres

This design is more of a decorative option. They are usually long, slim and come in a wide variety of finishes and styles. This design is usually very detailed and adds to the beauty of your home decor.

They can be fixed close to or over a large piece of furniture. They can also be used to illuminate your bathroom vanity.


3. Lantern Wall Sconce

This wall light design is made to add a traditional ambiance to your home. They are commonly used as an outdoor lighting option. It also comes with a large variety of styles and finishes.

They are usually bright enough to illuminate an entire space and also helps to provide a welcoming first impression to your home. Despite being popular as an outdoor lighting option, they are styles that are perfect for your interior as well.

4. Candle Sconces

Candle sconce dates back to centuries. They could either be made with an actual candle or a light bulb – whichever one, it can be used to add a splash of light to the wall.

Candle sconces are indoor lighting options for an intimate area. You can use them somewhere around the dining area or in the bedroom. Since they don’t give off much light, they can’t be used as a primary source of light.

5. Swing Arm Wall Light

This lighting design gives you the option of moving the unit around to enable you to channel the light to a specific direction where needed. Because of its ability to be turned around, it is good to be used for task lighting.

This indoor lighting option can be used in a nursery, office or beside your bed. If the space in your home is too little for a table or floor lamp, this may be the best option for you.

6. Picture Light

This design is well-known for its slender look. As the name implies, its purpose is to highlight a picture or piece of artwork. They are usually fixed just above the piece or aimed directly at it.

Using this wall light design will draw the attention of your visitors right to the piece on the wall.

7. Sign Light

Although similar to the picture light, the sign light is designed to light up a broader space. For instance, if you have a larger piece of artwork or a sign that you want people to take notice of, the sign light is your best option.
