ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:15:40
Wall sconces paired with mirrors will improve a small bathroom significantly. This is a popular bathroom lighting tip since sconces make the room look larger than it really is. The room is brightened up as well because of the additional light that is cast by the reflection in the mirror. There are many styles of sconces and mirrors which look great together, so you can always find a pair which will match the rest of your bathroom theme and ambient. When placed properly, bathroom sconces will create a sensual and exciting atmosphere. The light they provide is soft and indirect, making them ideal for a romantic, calm and soothing evening.
Wall sconces can be easily mounted everywhere in the home, and you really need to look hard and deep to find a place where you can`t install a sconce somewhere on the wall. The hallway and the bathroom are typical locations for the sconce lights, however you can also place them in the living room to highlight a piece of art or a painting on the wall, or outdoors to give enough light during the dark cold nights.
In another bathroom, a similar mirror has been hung above a traditional porcelain topped vanity with a built in, three mount sink with polished brass spigot and handles. This mirror also has an ornate frame but the wood, carved into knots of fruit and acanthus leaves, is painted ivory. The wall sconces have escutcheons painted the same color as the mirror frame, and the incandescent bulbs have silk shades edged with tiny white pompoms and braid.
Wall sconce lighting is a functional and decorative piece that attaches to a wall and holds either a candle or a bulb. We can track its history to before the 1400s. It was just a half circle made out of wood or metal and held a small candle. It was only used during these times for functional purposes. Today they are much more complex and decorative.
