The walls of your house are as important as any other part of the building. By lighting them properly, it will not only make your walls look beautiful but will also highlight the design that you may have incorporated. 

If you have been searching for different methods of making your walls look amazing then here are ten ways that you can use.

One of the most traditional styles of incorporating light into your house is by adding ceiling fixtures. These accessories will help illuminate the entire length of the wall in an instance.

2. Highlighters

If you have a stone wall in your house, then the best way to light them properly is by using highlighters. These highlighters will enhance the embossed design of the wall making it look more beautiful, especially at night.
