Depending on where your wall light is to be used, there are different types that come into question: For general lighting, models with a fairly large illuminated area are particularly suitable (1), which create a cosy indirect or diffuse light. Dimmable models are also a big plus here, as they allow you to adjust the light intensity to suit the atmosphere.
For use as a work or reading light, models that provide direct light, have swivel arms or joints and thus offer maximum flexibility in adjusting the light and the light head are ideal (4). A flexible luminaire head can also be turned away from the wall or ceiling, allowing it to be used as a beam area to complement the general lighting.
For accent lighting, a model that provides direct light and has a swivelling head for fine-tuning, e.g. for reading or illuminating pictures, shelves, kitchenettes or the like, is recommended (3).
The perfect wall lamp for your bedroom for reading or as lighting next to the bed provides direct light and is infinitely height adjustable - depending on use and the height of the user (2).
"A wall luminaire can be a convincing alternative to a floor lamp in small rooms. Mounted on the wall next to the sofa and equipped with swivel arms, it can handle any task, from reading to atmospheric light, with a brilliant beam and does not take up any precious floor space." - Viktoria, furnishing expert
Depending on the conditions in the room and the desired use, there are various installation options for wall luminaires: If there is a light outlet in the wall, you can either install wall lights with a switch on the light (1) or lights with a separate switch, e.g. at the room entrance (3), directly.
With a wireless battery wall lamp (2), which has a separate charging principle, you have absolutely free choice of space and are not bound to light outlets or sockets.
Other wall lamps with switch (4) come with a plug cable. In these models, the switch is located either on the cable or on the lamp. Here too, you have a free choice of location, which is only limited by the number of sockets required.
By the way, many designer wall lights are offered with different connection options, so that you do not have to be restricted by the room conditions. Combined wall and ceiling lamps or wall and table lamps not only allow flexible installation but also flexible use.
The mounting height basically depends on three factors: the use - as general lighting to accent lighting, the choice of location - something in front of or beside it and the luminaire itself - in terms of mobility and light diffusion.
In the case of a wall luminaire that provides indirect light and serves as general lighting, the mounting height is based on the choice of location. If the room height is 3 m or more, the proportions of the golden section can also be used to determine the appropriate height.
This rule also applies to combined light, i.e. the mixture of direct and indirect light. If, however, the direct light is intended to illuminate something specific, such as a picture, the mounting height is determined directly by this.
In the case of wall luminaires with direct light intended for room illumination, e.g. in corridors or entrance areas, it is advisable to ensure that the mounting height is such that it does not dazzle. This means that it should be mounted either slightly above eye level or, in the case of adjustable and flexible models, slightly higher than your own body height.
When buying a wall luminaire for indoors or outdoors, the light colour and the light source are also crucial: while for reading and working, it is advisable to use light that is as cold as possible because it is most similar to daylight and promotes concentration, warm white light is the right choice for relaxing, as mood lighting or in the bedroom because it helps to relax and promotes a cosy atmosphere.
With most wall lights, you can choose freely between these three types of light - regardless of the possibility of dimming: LEDs , halogen or classic incandescent lamps. There are some LED wall lights in which the LEDs are already permanently installed. This is because they last between 1 5.,000 and 50,000 hours, which means that if they are used for three hours a day, their service life is 14 to 45 years.
