Adding the round lights, whether smaller or larger into your curated wall art could be one way of playing with dimensions and variety.

This will create a nice installation when not lit up, and create an even more interesting point for your wall when actually lit up. Emphasizing here both the color of the light itself and the shape.

Apply Up The Stairs

Applying these types of light fixtures up the stairs, which otherwise need to be lightened up, casts the stairs nicely. And creates a nice ambience feeling warmth and snuggness.

How do I choose light?

There are quite a lot of factors to take into place when choosing the perfect light for your space. See this article for more light expertise.

With that being said I have collected my top 3 tips that I go for when selecting the round lights in this case.

  1. Define purpose: Decide on what type of purpose these lights will add to your space.
  2. Understand how the lamps are shown lit up: Evaluate if the type of casting the light does will give to your space and to your functional needs. As well as how much amount of light is coming out of it.
  3. Look into small lighting options for this: This goes both for the light fixture and for the light bulb. Make sure you can sync this to your smart home system if you are using this.

What are the benefits of round wall lights compared to other shapes?

The round wall lights create a flowy ambient light that gives character and life to a space.

These types of lights are beautiful on any wall, but I particularly love it on limewash walls, concrete, and also on limestone or stone walls as they create such a nice soft feeling to the materials.
