ggrd Wall Sconces April 16th, 2018 - 12:51:24
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.
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 was always in my immediate reach. I was just unaware how lighting can change your mood and make your entire self relax. By placing wall sconce lighting in certain areas around my vanity and a hypnotic sconce on the wall overlooking my bath, this room has developed into a spa like atmosphere. It gives off a halo or shadow that surrounds me with a comforting and pleasing feeling. These special effects have given me the energy that is well deserved and needed at the end of the day.
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.
