Criteria for wallwashers
- choice of luminaire determines lightcolour and light intensity
- emission angle determines thebeam of light
- uniform illumination of the wall with large luminaire spacing
- adjustable wallwashers allow individual adjustment to suit the spatial conditions
- focal emphasis through tilting of the luminaire
- accessories for mounting on posts or on the ground

Wallwashing is an important component of architectural lighting for adding emphasis to facades. Further applications are:
- entrance areas
- passages
- atria
- overhanging or cantilevered roofs
- park and garden complexes

As recessed luminaires, wallwashers are inconspicuous architectural details. Surface-mounted downlights act as a room feature. They should correspond to the architecture in their arrangement and form.
