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.
Torchiere sconces have a rather long base that is modeled on the typical torchieres. They offer a soft glow on the very top and these are very decorative lamps to use, however they are not so great for task illumination. By using various sconces in your home you can easily match any existing furniture with your chosen lighting fixtures. Due to the many different prices, you won`t have to search hard until you come across the perfect piece that will complement your home decor in style.
These lighting fixtures are usually wall mounted just about the midpoint of a wall. You can go higher or lower, but remember that a poorly placed wall sconce is glaringly noticeable and may not achieve the desired lighting effect. You want a light that will be soft, so place it at a level that won`t glare in your eyes.
So whether you are using it just to make people feel welcome or you are trying to make a small room feel and look bigger, using a unique wall sconce can come in handy in many different rooms. They are good for decoration, as well helping turn the entire feel of a room around. There are many places to find them and even websites that can help you design your own. So, find the room that needs that special addition and get to decorating.
