Wall Lighting Ideas

A pair of wall lights on a major wall, such as behind a couch, can offer additional brightness when you need it. Seating is usually placed away from the center of the room so it helps to bring extra light close to where you’ll spend time.

Wall lights can also illuminate over your shoulder for reading. Alternatively place them opposite the couch, typically behind the television.

To highlight your living room artwork on a wall, or to provide some lighting over a living room wall mirror, you can attach a small light fixture just above on the wall to shine focused light onto that one object.

Picture lights feature an elongated narrow shade which spreads the light out horizontally and aims to produce a reasonably wide window of light when the light makes contact with the wall-mounted art piece.

Some picture lights are also plug-in meaning that while a cord will hang down the wall, you can plug them into a regular electrical outlet. Others may require hardwired electrical installation.


Up-lighting or can-lighting entails a small, usually cylindrical canister, with a single strong light bulb which shines light out of the top of the unit.

The can light is designed to sit on the floor or low down in the room, perhaps either side of a fireplace or alongside the television.

Light shines upward in an elongated narrow funnel shape and will reflect ambient light off the walls and off the ceiling.

Placed near other objects like house plants they can create interesting shadows projected onto the ceiling to add extra interest to a corner of a room.

Some of the light is also typically reflected off the wall and up-lights are a good way to break up a blank wall area and to create additional tones of color similar to your wall color scheme.
