Things You Need To Know About Wall Washer Light

What is Wall Washer Light?

Wall washer light, also called wall washing or vertical illumination, is an essential aspect of lighting in architecture and commercial spaces. The light washes over the wall like water, creating a soft, comfortable, and not harsh light, brightening the space.

The wash of light on vertical surfaces helps define space or the spatial envelope.

Its light will be reflected through the wall, making it less uncomfortable and harsh than direct light.

Such lighting solutions could only be possible with specially designed optics from traditional luminaires with circular or square profiles.

Wall washing illuminates a vertical surface with uniform brightness. Wall washing draws attention to the wall and can accentuate an entrance of a retail shop, office, restaurant, or artwork of a gallery.

In the commercial sector, wall washing can be used as accent area lighting to make products or locations you want to highlight more attractive to customers. They can also be used in narrow areas to make spaces appear spacious. The spacing can be calculated so that the walls are illuminated evenly or regularly.

LED-wall washer installation notes

For interior wall washing, do not light windows or mirrors because the image of the lamps and fixtures may be reflected.

Dark surfaces reflect far less light than white surfaces, so more light should be directed onto them if they are perceived as being wall washed.

For outdoor wall washing lights, fixtures mounted close to the wall create a grazing effect on textured surfaces. This can be an advantage if the texture is attractive, but the wall has surface irregularities that should be avoided.
