Using LED wall lights is an energy efficient way to light your home, or at least sections of it. These lights also offer some distinct features that aren’t as easily found in other types of home lighting. There are a variety of fun choices when it comes to either indoor or outdoor LED home lighting. What works best for you will depend on your style and what you need from your wall fixtures.
Indoor LED Wall Lights
There are a few different types of LED wall lights available from accent lights to wall sconces.
Most types available are for very specific uses so it is important to determine the intended use before you start shopping.
One of the more popular types of LED light fixtures is the LED strip light. Strip lights, sometimes called picture lights, are long and thin and commonly used to highlight artwork like pictures. They are a common type of LED accent light that can really draw the eye to that special piece of artwork.
Another good use of LED wall lights is the wall sconce. These LED light fixtures aren’t as common as the traditional style of wall sconces, but they are gaining in popularity. There are some really unique styles available, and you can even find a good selection of battery powered LED wall sconces that can easily be used in a variety of places.
Sometimes LED step lights are mounted on the wall next to the stairway, instead of in the stairs. With some types of stairs a wall mount installation works better, for example if you have carpeted stairs.
When it comes to LED home lighting sometimes the most simple type of light is overlooked, the LED night light. LED night lights provide an extremely easy way to add a little light. They can be used in a room to provide a soft light while you are watching a movie or in the hallway or bathroom to provide enough light for anyone getting up in the middle of the night.
Outdoor LED Wall Lights
When it comes to LED outdoor lighting the most common types of LED wall lights include coach lights or outdoor sconces and security lights. LED security lights are often motioned sensor lights, triggered by movement to ward off unwanted visitors. For real energy-efficiency you can find solar versions in this style, but make sure solar lights are a good fit for your geographical area before you buy them.
LED wall lights like outdoor sconces or coach lights are great for an entryway, or for the deck or patio. You can also find battery powered outdoor wall lights that are perfect for areas outside that aren’t wired where you need light, a detached shed for example.
While you may need to use other types of light with them, LED wall lights can make a great addition to your current home lighting designs.
