When most people think about rustic wall lights, they think about lights made with animal shapes, wood, and other outdoor elements. Strategically placing a rustic wall lamp can enhance your existing lodge style or add something new to complement another design theme. Rustic wall sconces create a warm and inviting atmosphere to small spaces of your home, including hallways, entryways, and bathrooms.
Rustic wall lights provide light in small spaces while still offering a unique lodge-inspired style to a room. When shopping for wall lights, including those with a rustic style, you need to consider many things.
Some things you should consider before you buy and install a rustic wall light include:
Rustic wall lights not only provide ambient and task lighting to a room, but they also come with many features. Knowing the elements, you want your wall light to have can significantly help you narrow down your search when shopping for a new rustic wall lighting.
Small rustic wall lamps make it possible to hand in smaller spaces, such as hallways, bathrooms, and entryways. Knowing the room you intend to install your wall light can significantly determine which size light you have to choose from. Good thing these lights come in a range of sizes to accommodate a variety of smaller areas.
Some wall lights have the capability of being connected to a dimmer switch. A dimmer allows you to set the brightness levels of your rustic wall light to fit your lighting needs. For example, if you need to get some work done, your wall light can be set to shine bright, providing plenty of light. On the other hand, if the light is in a hallway, you can dim it at night for ambient lighting that works almost like a night light. In addition, dimmable lights are often controlled using a dimmer wall switch.
Some wall lights can use energy-saving LED lights, which can help you save money on your electric bills. Additionally, LED lights are longer lasting than incandescent lights, saving you from having to replace your light bulbs regularly.
Some wall lights have remote controls you can use for their operation. The remote control can turn the lights on and off and set the brightness levels similar to a dimmer switch.
Rustic wall sconces are a great lighting addition to any home. These wall lights help add layers of lighting to a room and illuminate small spaces, such as hallways and entryways. There are many rustic wall lamps made from various materials, including wood, metal, and glass.
Swing arm lights are exactly how they sound - lights that are adjustable with a swinging or extendable arm. These lights are perfect for reading areas, offices, or over bedroom nightstands.
Using a mix of materials as the base, rustic candle sconces work well in hallways creating a unique flickering light resembling a candle. Unfortunately, these wall lights are accent lights and produce little light to be useful for tasks.
Cage wall lights are rustic lamps wrapped in some metal cage. The cage is designed to protect the light and work well outside. If using the rustic cage light outside, ensure the light you selected is graded to be used outdoors. Most indoor lamps are not sturdy enough or waterproof to withstand outdoor weather elements.
Flush-mount wall sconces, such as half-moon and boxed designs, work well in small, narrow spaces. In addition, flush mount lights do not stick out too far from the wall, allowing plenty of room to walk by without bumping into the light fixture.
Hanging rustic lamps are those with a base mounted onto the wall, with an arm extending out from the wall. The light or lamp is hung off the arm, allowing the light to sway as they produce ambient light gently. Rustic hanging lamps look great outside or in entryways.
