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.
It is important to place the sconce about 60 inches from the ground and if you install more than one, they should be at least 6 feet apart from each for best results and most safety at home. Sconces have a great design and they are available in a lot of different styles that can make them decorative items on their own. If you want to accentuate a corner of your room, you can easily place corner sconces to give accent to that gorgeous and antique piece of furniture. You can also highlight with them picture frames and small decorative statues.
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.
Wall sconces paired with mirrors will improve a small bathroom significantly. This is a popular bathroom lighting tip since sconces make the room look larger than it really is. The room is brightened up as well because of the additional light that is cast by the reflection in the mirror. There are many styles of sconces and mirrors which look great together, so you can always find a pair which will match the rest of your bathroom theme and ambient. When placed properly, bathroom sconces will create a sensual and exciting atmosphere. The light they provide is soft and indirect, making them ideal for a romantic, calm and soothing evening.
