One of the things you must consider when decorating your home is how you can create a relaxing mood and endearing atmosphere in your rooms through proper lighting. Although you might immediately think of typical Swarovski chandeliers as a surefire way to elegantly light up your home, there are still other possible types of lighting fixtures that you can make use of. For instance, wall lights placed along hallways and entryways provide good illumination sans the unsightly electric chords.
Aside from specially designed Swarovski chandeliers that can also be placed on walls, the most popular types of wall fixtures include wall scones and wall lamps. All of these have different styles and features which contribute to the versatility of wall lights.
Wall scones come in a variety of designs. Some have lampshades fixed in one position for spot lighting, while others are void of shades for the purpose of casting light up, down, or in all directions. Ideally, scones come in pairs, and flank windows, doors, and hallways.
Wall lamps are also called ‘swivel arms’ or task lamps. These have extended arms that you can adjust in any direction, providing adequate light for reading or doing paperwork on desks, etc. The idea behind wall lamps is to provide more tabletop space for other items such as photo frames, telephones, clocks, etc.
