WHAT ARE PICTURE WALL LIGHTS?
A picture wall light can be used to illuminate pictures, paintings, and other decorative wall pieces within your home or commercial property. This allows these pictures to be highlighted and showcased as the focal point of the room. If you have a picture on the wall that you would like to emphasise, a picture wall light can help you do this.
ARE PICTURE LIGHTS EASY TO INSTALL?
While picture wall lights are relatively easy to install, we recommend that you hire a qualified electrician who is able to install the wall picture lights for you. This means that they can be installed safely and quickly by someone who is familiar with electrical wires and wall lighting fixtures.
WHERE CAN I PLACE PICTURE WALL LIGHTS?
Picture wall lights can be placed anywhere beside a picture on the wall to illuminate it. However, it is most commonly placed above the picture as the direction of most wall picture lights point the light downwards. In terms of rooms, many people put up pictures in living rooms, lounges, dining rooms, bedrooms, and hallways. As a result, you may also find picture wall lights in these areas. It is not recommended to install these lights in bathrooms or outdoor spaces.
ARE PICTURE WALL LIGHTS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
At The Wall Lighting Company, our range of wall picture lights include lighting fixtures that are compatible with LED light bulbs. This means that these picture wall lights (paired with an LED bulb) are more environmentally friendly compared to traditional light bulbs. In fact, their energy efficiency is improved significantly when you use an LED light bulb. Not only does the bulb tend to last longer, but it also consumes less energy.
DO PICTURE WALL LIGHTS NEED AN IP RATING?
All lights should have an IP rating, of which the standard is IP20. As long as you do not place wall lights in bathrooms or outdoor areas, wall lighting fixtures do not require an IP rating of above IP20. Picture wall lights are most commonly used in living rooms and hallways, so an IP rating of IP44, IP54 or IP65 are usually not required.
WHAT STYLE OF PICTURE LIGHTS IS MOST APPROPRIATE?
When it comes to picture lighting ideas, there are a number of different styles that you can choose from for your picture wall light. Conventional picture wall lights are sleek and long in (horizontal) length, but The Wall Lighting Company also offers spotlight-style lighting fixtures that are bell shaped. The style and look of your picture wall light is ultimately dependent on your own preferences. If you’re looking for picture wall lights in the UK, The Wall Lighting Company has a wonderful collection to choose from.
CAN PICTURE WALL LIGHTS BE BATTERY OPERATED?
We do not recommend a battery picture wall light as these types of lighting solutions usually do not last as long or perform as well as ones that are powered through electricity/mains operated. You might be inconvenienced by having to frequently replace and/or recharge the batteries, so it’s worthwhile to consider using mains operated wall picture lights instead of a picture wall light with battery.
CAN PICTURE WALL LIGHTS BE ADJUSTED?
At The Wall Lighting Company, we stock a vast array of wall picture lights that can be adjusted, meaning that you are able to change the direction of where their light points towards. This is useful for a picture on the wall as you are able to control how close or far away the light shines on the picture.
