Switching up your lighting can really transform your home. Wall lights are a subtle and stylish addition to a lighting scheme – here's a few ways to incorporate them into your space that may inspire your next project.

Beside your bedside

Add height and elevation to your bedroom with fixed wall lights. This is the perfect styling tip for saving space on your bedside table as you won't require a lamp. Choose lights with shades for a romantic and dimmed lighting effect.  

Certain designs, such as these from Loaf, come with wires that can be plugged into standard sockets, meaning you won't need the help of an electrician to install either. 

Kitchen wall lights

Out with the kitchen pendants and in with the wall lights! Highlight your worktop with staggered wall lights, which become design features in themselves. Three wall lights spread evenly along the wall make for an effective display, as three really is the magic number when it comes to good design!

Extendable designs

Extendable wall lights not only score highly in the style stakes, but they're also very handy for small spaces. Bring a spotlight to a reading nook or particular area with an extendable light than can be pulled out whilst in use but put back close to the wall when it isn't required.

Double up

Be ahead of the trends and group two wall lights together in a living space for an interesting feature. Contrast the metallic of your lights with your wall colour to make them successfully stand out. We love how these brass lights contrast beautifully with the dark grey wall.

Highlight a vanity

A wall light either side of your bathroom mirror will light the area perfectly, whether it be for putting on makeup or simply creating an ambient atmosphere in your stylish bathroom. 

Bring the fun

Add bundles of fun to a space with a wall-mounted neon light. More a piece of art than functional lighting, a neon sign is colourful and graphic and is sure to bring bundles of personality to whichever room you hang one in.
