Lighting is a vital part of your home decor, and it’s especially important in a bathroom or kitchen. But installing wall lamps is often a challenge, especially when you have concrete walls or want to avoid drilling holes in the walls. Fortunately, there are several ways to hang a lamp without drilling into your walls.
First, you need to decide what type of light you want. There are many different types of lights, including battery-powered lights and plug-in light kits. You can also find DIY lamp shades to match your decor, if you’d like.
Once you’ve determined what kind of light you want, you can start assembling your sconce. First, remove the steel plate that’s used to screw the sconce into the wall. Then, assemble the lampshade around the white frame of the sconce. Once the lampshade is positioned where you’d like it to be, add a few command strips to the back of the sconce. Make sure to use the velcro side of the strips (not the blue) and place them on the spot where you’d normally screw in the bulb.
Next, you’ll want to attach the sconce to the wall using the command strips. Leave the white paper on the strips in case you need to remove them later. Then, plug in your light and enjoy your new bathroom or kitchen fixture! This project is a great way to install a lamp in your home without needing to hire a professional. Plus, it’s a perfect DIY project for apartment dwellers. Just be sure to check your local laws before attempting this project. Depending on your location, it might be against the law to hang lights on a concrete wall, or you may need a permit.
