ggrd Wall Sconces April 16th, 2018 - 12:51:57
In another small bathroom whose walls are faced with traditional tile, the vanity has a pretty ivory and yellow skirt. The mirror is the front of a medicine chest and is acid etched with sheaves of wheat at the top. The wall sconce beside it is made of chrome with a milk glass, bell shaped shade over a single 100 watt bulb.
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.
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.
These lighting fixtures are usually wall mounted just about the midpoint of a wall. You can go higher or lower, but remember that a poorly placed wall sconce is glaringly noticeable and may not achieve the desired lighting effect. You want a light that will be soft, so place it at a level that won`t glare in your eyes.
