The trick to adding glamour to a bathroom space is simple: pair a modern wall mirror that suits the style of your home with a set of contemporary sconces flanking the mirror and you’ll achieve a fresh and fabulous look. Great bath lighting makes all the difference.
When it comes to sconces, it is not just the light that makes a difference, but also the shadows. So, make sure that the direction of the light and its pattern are appropriate for your home. Some sconces offer interesting shapes and dramatic shadows that make a big impact on the overall appearance of the room.
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.
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 was designing our master bedroom makeover, I knew I wanted to include a pair of wall sconces. I love the look of a bed flanked with lighting. It’s such a clean classic style and of course, there are plenty of benefits for having wall bedside lighting.
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!
