In this technique, one wall of the room is completely illuminated with recessed lights. Most of the time, it typically highlights a piece of art or wall hanging on this wall, which is essentially the focal point of the entire room. Such an arrangement lends sophistication to the interiors with minimum efforts and lesser lights. To install recessed lights using this technique, you first need to determine the spacing area. Divide the entire length of the wall by the wattage setting which is guided for wall washing. For example, 100 watt is recommended for 2 feet, 150 watts is recommended for 4 feet, and 150 watts is recommended for 3 feet. Once you get this calculation right, install the lights at the same distance.
Choosing a sconce to highlight a picture on the wall of your living room or to illuminate your hallway can be styled very differently from the sconce you chose for your bedroom reading. The sconce that will be used as accent lighting should be tailored to the item it is illuminating. For example, if you are showcasing a picture on the wall, I would suggest a light that can be angled and directed specifically at the piece you are featuring. When illuminating your hallway, a more traditionally-styled wall sconce could be used. A sconce that does not direct the light into one particular direction, but illuminates an overall space instead.
Outdoor hanging lanterns are mainly used for a porch or entry. Again, there are many styles, and there will be one that fits the design needs of your home. You can use and outdoor hanging light to add an added layer of light. These fixtures help accent other features of your home, such as custom made molding, window panes and the like. If you are dealing with a low ceiling or porch, outdoor ceiling lights are a great option. Many of the lighting fixtures come in collections, so you will likely find a matching ceiling light, hanging light, and wall sconce from the same collection in difference sizes and finishes.
For most living rooms, warm white lights are preferred over cool whites, as they lend a comfortable and cozy feel to the area, due to their light red tint (2800 - 3200K). In addition to these, one can also use red, green, and blue bulbs for decorative purposes.
