ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:36:29
Wall sconces have been used for centuries but nowadays you can find styles to suit any decor. You can also choose from many types, including candle, electric bulb and electric candle sconces. All provide a soft glow that creates a warm environment. Once you have decided which style suits you, you have to consider placement.
Wall sconces are very versatile and can be used to provide soft background illumination, as well as directional task lighting. They are perfect for hallways, kitchens, bedrooms and even bathrooms as a supplement to vanity lights for extra brightness. A wall sconce is ideal for small spaces because it adds light without using up precious floor or table space. Speak to an experienced lighting salesperson to help you choose a good style for your space and feel comfortable about using sconces to light up your home.
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.
Another room that using a wall sconce can make a huge difference in is the master bedroom. Wall sconces in the master bedroom can add flair of sophistication and romance to the feel of the room. There are many different ones that look good in the master bedroom. A large spiral sconce that holds many votive candles works extremely well for this area. Another one that works well in the master bedroom is candle sconces that have mirrors behind them. These both add a feel of romance in the room which is definitely a plus for the master bedroom.
