Bathroom Lighting Tips - Using Wall Sconces to Enhance Your Bathroom. A house will not function without a bathroom, and this this exactly why this room needs to have the same attention as the rest of the house is getting during decoration and re-decoration. What is puzzling though is that usually homeowners make it less of a priority. It is one of the smallest rooms in the house, yet one of the most frequently used, which means it is one with the highest traffic in the house.
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.
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.
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.
