ggrd Wall Sconces April 16th, 2018 - 12:49:09
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.
A small bathroom might have a small and simple vanity with a very ornate mirror with a carved wooden frame painted in gold leaf. The walls are faced with pale ceramic tiles and in this case a single wall sconce with a bracket made of oil rubbed nickel and a simple, frosted glass shade is put above it. The frosted glass shade echoes the white of the vanity, and the dark metal of the sconce`s base contrasts with the bright gold of the mirror frame.
It is powered by an electrical wire via a switch containing a hot, neutral and ground. Once wired, a center stud is screwed into the bracket that the light fixture is attached to with a locking nut. If you are not familiar with handling electricity, then it`s a good idea to hire a professional electrician who can do the job safely.
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.
