What is Wall Washer Light

A wall washer light, also known as wall washing or vertical illumination, is a type of lighting fixture or technique used in the lighting industry. It is specifically designed to illuminate vertical surfaces, such as walls, in a way that creates a soft and uniform brightness. The purpose of wall washer lights is to provide an even distribution of light across the surface, resulting in a visually pleasing and comfortable environment.

Wall washer lights are commonly used in architecture and commercial spaces, such as museums, art galleries, and building entrances. They are used to highlight unique objects or textures on the wall and enhance the overall appearance of the space. The light from wall washer lights is reflected through the wall, creating a more indirect and less harsh lighting effect.

To achieve the desired lighting effect, wall washer lights require specially designed optics. These optics are typically found in traditional luminaires with circular or square profiles. The design of these luminaires allows for the even distribution of light across the vertical surface, ensuring uniform brightness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a Spot Light Better Than a Wall Washer

If you need to illuminate a larger space like a driveway, parking lot, or simply provide overall coverage, it is recommended to use a wall washer. On the other hand, if you prefer more precise lighting control for a smaller area, a spot light would be more suitable. In general, spot lights tend to give a brighter appearance compared to wall washers.
