However, if the spot you want to install the sconce is directly above an existing electrical outlet, then I’d suggest using a plug-in wall sconce. These are super easy to install; if you can hang a picture you can install a plug-in sconce!
Nothing sets the mood for a romantic evening like dimmed down lights and few lit candles. Why not make this a permanent feature of your master bedroom or the home spa by simply adding a few candle sconces? Classic and charismatic, candle sconces bring home a special glitter of their own. While you always need to be extra careful with an open flame, a few properly placed candle sconces do transform the atmosphere of an interior and usher in serenity and cozy warmth. Use candle sconces to complement the fireplace or highlight your entry without ornate details.
Suggested placement heights range from 60-to-72 inches above the floor. For a room with 8-foot ceilings, place sconces between 60 and 66 inches high; place them 66-to-72 inches high in rooms with ceilings over 9 feet. In some rooms, like the living room or den, it may be helpful to position sconces roughly halfway between floor and ceiling, so that some of the light can assist with reading or other visually based activities. In the dining room, your primary goals are to enhance room light while keeping glare out of diners` eyes. Make a cardboard template of the sconce you plan to use, tape a small flashlight to the back and ask a friend to hold template where you plan to mount it. Sitting down, you can spot and correct glare problems immediately.
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.
Lighting professionals counsel thinking in layers of light to make a room functional and attractive: ambient, or overall, light; task-light for reading and manual chores; decorative light to highlight areas of the room, pictures or other accessories; and accent light, which can bring drama and focus to an architectural feature or small area of the room. Use sconces for decorative and accent light; even a large chandelier, they point out, may provide good table-light while leaving parts of the room shadowy or dark.
Are you looking to add a touch of romance, elegance and dazzling beauty to your home? Nothing enlivens a dull and dreary room like perfect lighting.
