Wall Wash Lighting
Wall wash lighting makes use of downlights, flood lights and track lights to produce a wide or narrow beam of light to go on interior and exterior walls. Outdoor wall washing is common in landscape applications to emphasize the architectural style of buildings and hardscapes. It is also common in facade lighting for buildings and monuments. Indoor wall washing is used in homes and museums to highlight photographs, artwork and pieces of furniture. A wall wash fixture can be mounted on the ground to produce an uplight like in the case of flood lights, or mounted recessed or surface on the ceiling to produce a downlight.
