ggrd Wall Sconces April 16th, 2018 - 12:50:52
One bathroom has a simple vanity made of white porcelain and above it a square, mahogany framed mirror. The sconces beside it are in the form of two neon tube lights which give off a pretty, sunrise glow that complements the bathroom`s other clean lines. These are a few of the many ways to combine a wall sconce or two with a vanity and mirror.
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.
Using these pieces in the family room is a great idea as well. They can be used, not only for decoration and a bit of light, but also as a shelf to hold that special photo. If you find one that doubles as a small shelf it works well to double up on them and place them on the wall on either side of a large picture with two smaller pictures sitting on the shelves. It gives a feel of balance and organization while showing off those special photos. At the same time it gives a feel of home to the room.
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.
