Wall sconces are wall mounted lights that have a wide range of functionality and can provide ambient, task and accent lighting.
Sconces are a great solution for homes with spatial limitations and walls that need a little extra character. Wall lights can act as welcoming accent pieces that brighten up any room or provide a guiding light in a hallway.
While all sconces provide excellent sources of light, not all their designs are equal. These light fixtures are available as elegant candle wall sconces and decorative wallchiere lights that add a sense of grace to a room.
Finding the Perfect Wall Sconce
Since wall sconces are part function, part decoration; it is important to determine the color and style that will best fit your home decor.
Positioning and location are just as important as matching your preferred style. Sconce positioning can help elevate the design and flow of your room if you follow these simple guidelines:
● Multiple sconces on a wall can help break up long barren walls or hallways. The general guideline with wall sconce placement calls for sconces every six feet and 60 to 70 inches off the ground or floor.
● Wall sconces can also be positioned on both sides of windows, fireplaces, or sinks that are centered on a wall. This will create a welcoming atmosphere and a sense of symmetry in the room.
That said, rules are made to be broken - don’t be afraid to experiment with the positioning until you find what works best with your home and style.
