WALL SCONCE INSTALLATIONPrint this article
Wall sconce installation is best left to professionals with electrical experience; however, many consumers successfully install their own sconces. If you would like to install your new sconce, Bellacor recommends reviewing the sconce manufacturer’s instructions carefully and taking safety very seriously. If a wired sconce style is not an option for you, Bellacor offers attractive plug-in sconces as well.
Experts have developed general guidelines for wall sconce installation, which can be helpful in standard lighting arrangements. Where should you place your sconce? It is suggested to install a wall sconce 66”-78” above the floor to prevent it from being bumped. If you would like your sconce installed lower, Bellacor offers flush-to-wall sconces to fit your needs. In multiple-sconce situations, experts recommend placing them 6’-8’ apart for the best aesthetic balance.
Regardless of who installs your sconces, there are some helpful tips we will share with you.
