Discover our category dedicated to painting lighting, this type of wall light is specially designed to highlight your paintings and photos.
Lighting a frame is a subtle way to bring a point of light into your home while highlighting the illuminated object. Painting lighting will direct the eye to a painting or a photo, as the eye will not be drawn to the lamp itself, but to the object or frame you wish to illuminate. This wall lamp will therefore go unnoticed and the staging of your decoration will take shape. In the evening, remember to punctuate your spaces in small luminous touches to bring a little perspective to the walls of your room.
There are several solutions for lighting a space, but a subtle and soft way is to light in an indirect way.
A frame placed between two pieces of furniture will not be highlighted, a dashboard lamp positioned above it will highlight it while bringing an additional point of light into your space. This wall light will have a sufficient quantity of light while keeping a soft and relaxing lighting. The table wall light can also be used to bring a point of light above a bathroom mirror or above a mirror in your entrance hall.
It is possible to choose several different colour renditions depending on what you wish to illuminate a painting, a photo, a mirror...
Lighting a painting :
To light a painting correctly, the aim is to bring out the colours of the paint and give it as natural a rendering as possible. To do this, avoid using a bulb with a colour rendering that is too warm (yellow), it is therefore advisable to use a bulb with a neutral white rendering at a recommended temperature of 4000°K and above.
Above a mirror :
For a bathroom, it will be advisable to use a neutral white bulb with a temperature from 4000°K to provide natural light.
For an entrance mirror, the objective will not be the same, the aim being, in this case is to provide light and to remain in a warm atmosphere, a warm white temperature of 2700°K will be more pleasant.
LED table lighting :
More and more manufacturers are offering LED table lights.
These lamps are equipped with integrated LED bulbs. The bulbs that make up the lamp are integrated into the structure of the lamp and being smaller than ordinary bulbs, the integrated LED allows for a thinner and more linear application, making the lamp discreet and stylish.
In addition, this type of LED wall light gives targeted light without emitting heat. There is therefore no risk of heat damage to the paint to be illuminated. Finally, LED diodes have a much longer life than conventional bulbs and a much lower consumption.
Depending on your interior and the frame to be lit, it will be possible to choose the style of wall light that will best suit your interior.
If you have a modern painting or a dibond photo frame, a modern and sleek lamp will be perfect. It will even be possible to contrast it with a blackboard wall light.
The modern wall lamp is more sober and often thinner than a classic wall lamp, but it is possible to play with the contrast with its white, black or even chrome colour.
For a classic painting with a gilded and worked frame, opt for a copper wall light. Of a more classic shape and colour, the classic wall light will blend in with the decoration and will not take the limelight in your painting. However, it is always possible to combine the two, to take a modern and refined painting lighting, but opt for a copper colour. The effect will be guaranteed!
