Consider a replacement such as a rustic wood mirror to add texture and cool chrome sconces for contrast. Rustic wood appears on the vanity and in the mirror frames while contemporary chrome sconces and faucets add elegance. A more traditional vanity with bun feet is enhanced by hanging a shapely scalloped mirror above it and adding two shiny silver sconces in a transitional style.
Their ability to maximize precious leg room and desk space is the biggest selling point of wall sconces. Since many modern homes and big city apartments are short on space, sconces add immense value by simply staying out of the way. While a floor lamp or even a bedside table lamp take up valuable room, wall-mounted sconces free up space so that you can use it for other tasks. While they are currently pretty popular as bedside lights, sconces can also serve you well in the home office and library by replacing the traditional table lamps. A tidy way to clear up the desk!
Lamps Plus Facebook reader Wanda recently asked us the following: “Please give me some advice about hanging wall sconces above an electrical outlet. Do I have to knock a hole in the wall to attach electricity between the sconce and the outlet?”
The hardwired sconces offer a more finished look, but for seating areas or around a bed, the plug-in wall sconces look great and offer an easy style fix. And, they come in a wide range of looks.
There are plenty of choices when it comes to wall sconces. The styles are simply endless, and you can get everything ranging from Victorian and Colonial sconces to super sleek and timeless pieces like the Serge Mouille Lamps. Also consider the size and placement of the sconce before you actually make the buy. While large and grand sconces are apt for accent lighting, task and ambient lighting requires more modest and focused lights.
Another great tip I found was to mount the shade of the sconce about 24 inches above the nightstand. Ours are close to 21″ above which seems to be a great height for us.
When I started to install mine, I put an incredible amount of thought and research into finding the right placement. Of course, there are no hard fast rules when it comes to the height and placement of a bedroom wall sconce. But I did discover some very helpful guidelines. So if you are considering adding some wall sconces to your bedroom, hopefully these few tips will help you.
