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.
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.
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.
Moreover, the things that you need to consider before buying certain sconce is about the size. Do not choose too large sconce if you want to put this fixture on your bathroom. It is because too large sconce on bathroom can possibly disturb you when you are taking a shower. So, choosing the small one is suggested to you. For other rooms, you can determine by yourself whether to choose the small or the large sconce by adjusting the sconce with the room.
