Wall lights with switches are a versatile and practical lighting solution that can enhance the ambiance of any room in your home. These lights are designed to be installed directly onto a wall, providing a stylish and space-saving lighting option. If ceiling lights are too bright, wall lights can be used instead for a more subtle light. With the added convenience of a built-in switch, wall lights offer a hassle-free way to control your lighting without the need for additional wiring or complicated installation. With wall lights with a switch to suit any interior design scheme, these easy to install lights should definitely be on your radar.  


Which rooms are wall lights with switches used? 


Wall lights with switches can be used in a variety of rooms throughout the home. They are particularly useful in areas where direct overhead lighting is not necessary or desirable, such as bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, storage spaces, and hallways.

 

  • In bedrooms, wall lights with switches can be used as reading lights when positioned at either side of the head of the bed. 
  • In the living room, wall lights with switches can be used to create a cosy atmosphere, instead of table lamps or as an alternative to ceiling lights.
  • In the dining room, wall lights with switches can be used to provide a soft, intimate glow that complements the main overhead lighting. Perfect for dinner parties or romantic dinners!
  • In hallways, wall lights with switches can be used to provide a guiding light, while in storage cupboards, they can light up the space with no complicated wiring. 

Ultimately, the choice of where to install wall lights with switches will depend on the specific needs and preferences of the home, but they are a versatile lighting option that can be used to enhance the ambiance and functionality of any room in the home.


Why use wall lights with switches?


There are several reasons why wall lights with switches are a popular choice for homeowners:

 

  • Convenience: Wall lights with switches provide a convenient way to add lighting without the need for additional wiring or complicated installations. With the switch built into the light fixture itself, you can easily turn the light on and off with just the flick of a switch.
  • Versatility: Wall lights with switches come in a variety of styles, sizes, and shapes, making them a versatile lighting option for any room in the home – they can be decorative as well as functional!
  • Space-saving: Unlike traditional floor lamps or table lamps, wall lights with switches are installed directly on the wall, which can help save valuable floor space in smaller rooms or areas with limited space.
  • Design impact: Wall lights with switches can have a significant impact on the overall design and ambiance of a room. They can be used to create subtle lighting effects or to highlight specific areas of a room, such as artwork or architectural features.
  • Energy efficiency: Wall lights with switches can be an energy-efficient lighting solution as they can be turned on and off as needed, rather than leaving a floor lamp or table lamp on all the time. Additionally, many wall lights with switches are designed to be used with LED bulbs, which are more energy-efficient and have a long lifespan.

What materials are wall lights with switches made from? 


Wall lights with switches can be made from a variety of materials, depending on the style and design of the light. Here are some common materials used for wall lights with switches:

  • Glass is often used for the shades or covers of wall lights with switches. It can provide a contemporary look, or a more traditional and elegant feel, depending on the style of the glass. Some wall lights with switches may also feature frosted or coloured glass for added visual interest.
  • Ceramic is a popular material for wall lights with switches as it can be moulded into a variety of shapes and designs. Ceramic wall lights with switches can be finished in a range of colours and patterns, making them a versatile choice for any interior design scheme.
  • Wood is a natural and warm material that can add a cosy and rustic feel to a room. Wall lights with switches made from wood can be finished in a variety of stains and finishes, from natural wood grain to painted finishes.
  • Some wall lights with switches may feature fabric shades, which can provide a soft and diffused lighting effect. Fabric shades can be made from a range of materials, from cotton to silk, and can be finished in a variety of colours and patterns to complement any interior design scheme.

Overall, wall lights with switches can be made from a variety of materials, allowing homeowners to choose a style that best fits their personal taste and interior design preferences.

    White: White is a classic and timeless colour for wall lights with switches with a clean and minimalist look, which is perfect for modern or contemporary interior design schemes.

What bulbs are best for wall lights with switches? 


LED bulbs are generally considered the best choice for wall lights with switches for several reasons. Here are some of the benefits of using LED bulbs:

 

  • LED bulbs are highly energy-efficient, using up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. This can result in significant cost savings on energy bills over time.
  • LED bulbs have a longer lifespan than other types of bulbs, lasting up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. This means less frequent bulb changes and less waste.
  • LED bulbs are available in a range of brightness levels, and provide bright and consistent light, without flickering or buzzing.
  • Some LED bulbs are dimmable, allowing you to adjust the brightness of the light to create a customized ambiance in the room. This can be particularly useful for wall lights with switches that are used for mood lighting.
  • Some LED bulbs are colour-changing, allowing you to adjust the colour of the light to suit your mood or to create a specific ambiance in the room.
  • Some LED bulbs are smart bulbs that can connect to Wi-Fi and be controlled using a smartphone app or home hub. This can provide even greater control over the lighting in the room, allowing you to set schedules, adjust brightness, and even change colours remotely.

Some wall lights with switches have integrated LED bulbs, which can be a convenient and cost-effective option. These lights are designed to last for many years and provide consistent, high-quality light without the need for frequent bulb changes. Ultimately, the choice of bulb for wall lights with switches will depend on the specific needs and preferences of the homeowner.


How are wall lights with switches powered?


Wall lights with switches can be powered in different ways depending on their design and installation requirements.


Some wall lights with switches are designed to plug into a regular wall socket, which makes them easy to install. These lights have a power cord that is attached to the light fixture and can be plugged into any nearby electrical outlet. These are great for rented homes and for homes where making permanent changes aren’t possible.


Other types of wall lights with switches are designed to be hardwired into the mains electrical supply. This involves connecting the light fixture's wiring directly to the electrical box in the wall using wire connectors. This type of installation is more permanent, but can provide a cleaner look, as there are no visible wires or cords.


It's important to note that if you are not comfortable working with connecting anything to the mains lighting, it's best to hire a qualified electrician to install your wall light with a switch.


What height should wall lights with switches be fitted?


The height at which you should fit wall lights with switches will depend on several factors, including the height of the ceiling, the size and style of the light fixture, and the intended use of the light. However, there are some general guidelines that can help you determine the optimal height for your wall lights with switches:

 

  • Height from the floor: As a general rule, wall lights with switches should be positioned so that the centre of the light is at eye level when you are standing or sitting in the room. This will typically be around 60-65 inches (152-165 cm) from the floor.
  • Height from furniture: If you are installing a wall light with a switch above a piece of furniture, such as a bed or sofa, you should position the light so that it is roughly 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) above the top of the furniture. This will help to prevent glare and ensure that the light is focused where it is needed.
  • Ceiling height: If you have a high ceiling, you may want to adjust the height of your wall light with a switch to ensure that it is in proportion with the room. Usually, the higher the ceiling, the higher the light should be positioned on the wall.

Ultimately, the height at which you should fit your wall light with a switch will depend on the specific needs and requirements of your room. It's always a good idea to experiment with different heights and positions before making a final decision.


What style of interior décor is best for wall lights with switches?


Wall lights with switches can work with a wide range of interior décor styles. A few examples include: 


    Industrial: With an industrial interior design scheme, wall lights with switches can provide a raw and unfinished look that complements the exposed brick, metal, and concrete elements of the room. Wall lights with switches made from metal, with a distressed or oxidized finish, can be a good choice for an industrial style.


    Traditional: Wall lights with switches can provide a classic and elegant look in a traditional interior design scheme. They can be used to highlight architectural details. Those finished in brass or bronze complement traditional furnishings and décor.


    Scandinavian: In a Scandinavian interior design scheme, wall lights with switches can provide a minimalist and understated look that complements the simple and functional furnishings of the room. Wall lights with switches in white, black, or wood, with a sleek and modern design, are the best choices for Scandinavian style.


    Minimalist: Minimalist design means everything is minimal, so wall lights with switches can provide a clean and uncluttered look that complements the simple and functional furnishings of the room. Wall lights with switches in a sleek and modern design, with a neutral colour palette, can be a good choice for a minimalist style.


    Contemporary: In a contemporary interior design scheme, wall lights with switches can provide a sleek and sophisticated look that complements the clean lines and modern furnishings of the room. Wall lights with switches in a bold and dramatic design, with a metallic or glass finish, can be a good choice for a contemporary style.


Ultimately, the style of wall light with a switch that is best for your interior décor will depend on your personal taste and the specific needs of the room.
