Wall Lighting Ideas

From a single Murray Feiss sconce to a four light Kichler vanity fixture, a swing arm lamp by Hubbardton Forge to a Quoizel tiffany sconce, wall lighting comes in many different shapes and sizes and solves a variety of lighting challenges.  Wall lighting is an essential part of home décor and it can be as simple as a sconce that sheds light when you enter a bedroom, to a reading light over a favorite chair. In the bathroom it’s the light to shave by or powder your nose.

Place wall lights down a hallway to add personality to a dull space. Use wall lights in a stairwell for safety and style. Use wall lights inside closets and pantries, accent a wall between windows, and make the space over your fireplace spectacular.  Coordinating wall sconces with your dining room chandelier enhances the elegance of both.  In every instance a well place wall light provides a decorative element, useful illumination, and saves space.

Here in Madison WI homes can be in shade much of the time making mirror mounted wall lights a great asset. This application adds two types of light, direct and reflected, and looks as good over a nightstand in the bedroom as a pair of sconces over a bathroom vanity.

Madison is home to whole neighborhoods built post-war, and in every bathroom and bedroom there are wall lights. In the bathroom it’s a single light over the mirror casting so little light by today’s standards it’s annoying. In the bedroom it’s a sconce made to light the room when you enter it, again casting little light that’s useful. They aren’t bad sources of light, they simply aren’t enough. So let us help you upgrade and enhance! At Madison Lighting we subscribe to the “more is more” theory; a well-lit room is more comfortable, more useful, and more pleasant. Be sure to add dimmer switches on every wall light and the fixtures will be more flexible, and more energy efficient, too.

We recommend multiple light sources for optimal task lighting. We now know that the bathroom needs light on either side of the mirror to really light the face. And ambient light as another source makes it even better. We can show you how mounting the wall lights on the mirror can add beauty and light.

Place wall lights down a hallway to add personality to a dull space. Use wall lights in a stairwell for safety and style. Use wall lights inside closets and pantries, accent a wall between windows, and make the space over your fireplace spectacular.

We’ll help you select lighting that matches or coordinates for another element of style. Feiss, Kichler, Hinkley, and Tech are just a few of the manufacturers you’ll find in our collection.
