ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:36:17
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.
A tiny, very modernistic bathroom has a long vanity with two sinks whose top is made of what looks like plexiglas. Above it hangs a simple, frameless round mirror. The wall sconces are actually on the adjacent wall and look like two portholes, one placed right above the other. In a large bathroom, a gorgeous vanity has beautiful, teak wood drawers and cabinets beneath and a top made out of gray and white Botticino classico marble. Two mirrors, also framed in teak, are mounted above two sinks. Between the two mirrors is a wall sconce that drips with crystal chains, balls and almonds like a tiny, three armed chandelier.
If you are using sconces to accent a point of interest, like an interesting table, then make sure the effect is a soft glow that is not overpowering. You should also consider the layout of your furniture. Sconces should add to the atmosphere and experience of your room, not detract from it. Do not place sconces directly where someone will be sitting.
Using A Wall Sconce Next To Your Vanity Mirror. A wall sconce for the bathroom, or more traditionally a pair of them, might be based on the styles of the bathroom mirror and vanity. On the other hand, the styles may be so different that the sight of a contemporary pair of wall sconces beside a Victorian vanity and mirror delivers a little pop of surprise and delight. Such a set up has to be done with care, and the wall sconce has to complement something else in the room, perhaps a modern wet room with chrome fixtures, or a ceramic tile floor with an Art Deco pattern. There are ways to make even the most unlikely elements in a bathroom work in harmony.
