Wall lights can be strategically placed in various areas of your home, such as the living room for accent lighting, the bedroom for bedside illumination, and the hallway for added visibility. They are also ideal for creating a cozy ambiance in dining areas, providing functional lighting in the kitchen, and enhancing safety on staircases. Additionally, wall lights can be used to highlight artwork or architectural features, and they can also be installed outdoors to illuminate pathways and enhance the exterior aesthetic.
Wall lights should always be placed on walls or wall-like surfaces, which includes but is not limited to, surfaces that could be mistaken for a wall, like a theatre lamp or a doorway where the door is closed or slightly ajar.
Other wall-like surfaces can be detected using radiometry, where a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum can be used to discover approximate positions in the wall where a wall light could (in theory) be placed.
A bunkhouse is often considered to have 5 walls, which is perfect for optimizing your wall lights in a star pattern.
