Vintage wall lights have become an incredibly popular design choice for those looking to add a little charm to their homes. Wall lights with a vintage or antique look can help achieve that warm yet 'humble abode' look that many people want to see after coming home from a long day of work. Wall lighting fixtures are a small but great way to help achieve this style. Many are built to be eye-catching and can take attention away from more modern or contemporary fittings in the home. And the truly great thing about vintage wall lighting is that it can come in many different styles.
Vintage is such a wide category in that it can range from a recreation of a 18th century Scottish castle to a 1975 'modern' interior design approach. One such interior design approach that often borders with vintage is industrial. A good portion of homes and flats in the UK today have come about as a result of renovation of old industrial buildings such as mills, factories and warehouses. Instead of completely removing the original building, many property developers feel there is an obligation to retain the original building's walls and structure as best they can. Unsurprisingly, many people love these sorts of gentrified interiors and, as such, they are highly sought after. So if you are in an industrial style setting, or would like to achieve such an effect, industrial styled wall lights with a vintage feel are highly recommended. If you have an interior wall that is made from brick, swan neck lights look terrific against such a backdrop. The light being cast down on the bricks give them a warm, intimate glow. If you have wooden walls in your industrial-styled property, you cannot go wrong with some vintage brass wall lights. Single or double arm pendant style vintage wall light fixtures can bring about a lovely, quirky antique look. Irrespective of what vintage industrial lighting you choose for your interior, it's important that it fits in with the standard open-plan aesthetics of the industrial style. As a result, wall lighting is preferable over lamps as they do not take up any floor space – creating the illusion of there being more space.
For those with detached or semi-detached properties with their own front or back garden, outdoor lighting also serves an important purpose. This isn't just from an aesthetic point of view. Vintage outdoor wall lights allow people to navigate outside the property when it's dark. They can help ward off any burglars as sensors can be installed to set off as soon as anything comes within range. Vintage wall lights can also create a sense of theatre and joy. One such style of outdoor wall lighting is nautical. Don't worry, we're not suggesting you turn your house into a giant boat (although those maritime types may like that). Sparse usage of vintage outside wall lights such as bulkhead lights will bring a smile to the faces of your guests. Many of these lights are inspired by the early 20th century period of ship-faring and have been purpose-built as such. These lights are also extremely durable due to the materials that are involved such as zinc and aluminium. This means they can stand up to the challenges presented by being situated in a wet climate such as the UK. They are also extremely affordable for buyers on any budget. Before you buy any lighting for outside, it's also good to make sure that the lights have received the correct IP (ingress protection) rating. This rating will tell you if a wall light is suitable for outdoor usage. You should always look for at least an IP44 rated wall light for outdoors. At The Wall Lighting Company Ltd, we like to give you all of that information upfront – it's why we always provide the IP rating for wall lighting that will be used outdoors, in a bathroom or in a wet-room.
