Tips When Choosing Wall Sconces For Your Room. Wall sconces are a great way to add drama and style to any room. These lights give a soft glow that creates a warm and welcoming environment that you can relax in. If you like softness but not the formality of chandelier lighting, then sconces may be the perfect alternative. In this article, we`ll discuss some the different styles available and how to choose the best one for your unique decor.
Wall sconces can be easily mounted everywhere in the home, and you really need to look hard and deep to find a place where you can`t install a sconce somewhere on the wall. The hallway and the bathroom are typical locations for the sconce lights, however you can also place them in the living room to highlight a piece of art or a painting on the wall, or outdoors to give enough light during the dark cold nights.
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.
