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.
The electrical needs for sconces are specific, so make sure you have the correct wiring in place before purchasing the pieces. These wall fixtures come with mounting hardware to install your new light. The mounting bracket is secured to the wall, then the electrical box is secured with two screws provided.
One room that is great for the use of a wall sconce is the entry way to your home. This area is a wonderful area to make use of one, especially if you can use the art of repetition here as well. Using one of these items on either side of a small picture can make a large area of wall look well organized and absolutely gorgeous. It allows just enough lighting to create a warm and welcoming look to your home. The look that it may portray will allow guests to feel welcome in your home as soon as they walk in the door.
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.
