Metal Wall Lights
Your metal wall lights can be retro or modern depending on the shape and finish, and as many of them are adjustable you can direct them to towards the areas you wish to be illuminated, making them perfect for bedsides when you want to do some late night reading. A metal wall light is versatile and would suit most spaces, both interior and exterior. Many of them have an IP rating of at least IP44, making them safe for bathrooms and outdoor areas, and some are galvanised, meaning they would be even more well-suited to the outdoors due to their protective layer of zinc that prevents rusting.

Can I install metal wall sconces by myself?
It is not recommended to install any form of wall lighting solutions, including metal wall sconces lights by yourself. It is important that you are experienced and knowledgeable about the installation process before you proceed. As a result, this means that the better option should be to hire a qualified electrician who is able to install your new metal light fixture for you. Not only is this a more efficient method of installation, but it is also safer.
What IP rating should metal wall lights have?
Depending on where you place your metal wall lights, a minimum IP rating of IP44 is recommended for areas that are vulnerable to water exposure. For instance, this can be a bathroom, kitchen, and outdoor space. So, if you are planning to install metal sconces lights in your bathroom, IP44, IP54 and IP65 are recommended.
Can metal wall lights be placed outdoors?
Yes. Modern wall sconces can be placed outdoors, provided that they have an IP rating of IP44 as a minimum. This ensures that they are protected against the weather elements, particularly rainfall. If you live in an area that experiences rainfall often, then it might be best to pick a metal light fixture that has an IP rating of IP65 as this rating offers better water resistance compared to IP44 and IP54.
How often should I clean metal sconces lights?
You should ideally clean your metal wall sconces lights regularly to avoid the buildup of dirt and grime. A light maintenance clean every one to two weeks is recommended to prevent the metal from tarnishing. Using a damp, soft cloth and mild detergent, you can wipe away debris and dirt from your disc wall light fixture after removing the light bulb. With a sconce lamp, don’t forget to clean the inside of the fixture (bulb removed), as well as its exterior.
