Some may be hesitant of the installation factor - wall fixtures need to be mounted and may need minor electrical work as well. With floor and table lamps, one need simply plop the light down, plug it in, and voila - let there be light. So yes, there is a little extra work or installation cost (for you non do-it-yourselfers), as opposed to other lighting options. But there are also some major advantages wall lighting has over standard lamps. Floor and table space for one. Everyone wants more room for family photos, trinkets, and even plants on their end tables, and wall lighting is a great way to get this space while still adequately lighting a room. Second, with floor and table lamps come unsightly and often dangerous (especially if you have kids running around) electrical cords.

In creating a mood it is necessary to hide the light source and only show its effect.
