ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:29:44
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.
A small bathroom might have a small and simple vanity with a very ornate mirror with a carved wooden frame painted in gold leaf. The walls are faced with pale ceramic tiles and in this case a single wall sconce with a bracket made of oil rubbed nickel and a simple, frosted glass shade is put above it. The frosted glass shade echoes the white of the vanity, and the dark metal of the sconce`s base contrasts with the bright gold of the mirror frame.
A better choice is to place the fixtures off to the side. If you`re using sconces to light a hallway, which is a very popular choice that can make this space look spectacular, then make sure that your sconce layout is balanced. You can do this by placing the wall fixtures 8 to 10 feet apart in a staggered pattern for the length of your hallway. The effect will be stunning.
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.
