There are multiple aspect to an interior that stand out as being important. But, one of the most important things is lighting, because without it, nothing works. If you don’t have good lighting, then the rest of your interior just loses out. A great part of interior lighting are wall lamps. People don’t really think about them, but there are many things you can know about them that can make their use simpler and more effective too!


1. Light for intimate places

If you have a reading corner or a separate space in a room, it can be a bit difficult to light properly, especially if there isn’t enough room for a table to fit a lamp in. But, such a situation should be no problem. A few wall lamps can decorate that space beautifully. If it is a reading corner, pick a lamp whose light can be directed, and use the appropriate strength. You don’t want weak light when reading, but you also don’t want a stage light.

2. Balance

If you create the lighting in your space in a balanced way, it will be instantly noticeable. Balance is essential to interior design, and if it is not achieved, you will see it and feel it. There is really no formula to this, you need to feel it to be able to create it.

3. Mirror light

The light in spaces where you stand in front of the mirror, like the bathroom, or the bedroom, needs to be designed in such a way that it works together with you to make it easier for you to do whatever it is you are doing in front of the mirror. Maybe you are putting on make-up, maybe you are shaving, but the light needs to be good enough for you to easily be able to do your stuff. Not too strong, not too weak, just right.

4. Cables

5. If you feel like cables are ugly and you don’t see a way to get rid of them, you don’t have to! You can just mask them and make them a part of the decoration. There are many cable masks on the market; they are cheap, and easy to use. If you feel like your cables are ugly, and you want to remove them, this is the perfect way to do that.

6. Main room lighting

Big wall lamps can be used as a central light source in the interior, as well as reading lamps and lamps for other purposes. A big retro wall lamp above the table is a creative alternative for a chandelier, and they make the interior interesting and enticing.

All these things and many more are important for lighting. When you think about all the things you will need in your interior for quality lighting, you can’t think about only blinds or only chandeliers, you have taken the big picture into account. Keep that in mind when you are thinking about redesigning the lighting in your home interior.
