ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:41:54
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.
Wall sconces should always be used in pairs and trios. If you are going to use just a single one, you might not be able to achieve the desired effect that you want in your bathroom since the fixture by itself does not provide adequate lighting for any place. It will also not suit your purpose since the light of a single piece may not be enough to provide proper illumination for your task.
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.
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.
