One of the biggest challenges for installing a wall light fixture is getting the height right. For a practical arrangement, a fixture should be placed about 8 to 10 feet from the floor. Long hallways can quickly start to resemble runways if the fixtures are too close together. Staggering the sconces so they don’t line up across the corridor is a more natural configuration, and fewer or more sconces can be used to make a decorative statement.

When considering a wall-mounted light fixture, you’ll want to consider the style, height of your ceilings and your personal preferences. A wide variety of styles are available, including picture lights and sign sconces that are designed to highlight specific artwork or signage without providing primary lighting. You’ll also find ADA-compliant fixtures that are no more than 4 inches deep for narrow hallways and other areas where heavy traffic passes walls. It’s important to check the fixture’s measurements before you have an electrician cut holes and wire it, but even if you have a rough idea of what you’re looking for, testing with a cardboard cutout can help ensure that the fixture will fit properly.
