Just like shopping for furniture, choosing the right lights for your home requires some planning. While it’s tempting to settle on a single fixture style and fill each room of your house with pieces from the same collection, doing so will only make your home look boring… fast. One of the best ways to spruce things up is with a coordinated approach to light layering. Whether you prefer minimalistic design themes or love more eclectic décor, mixing and matching your light fixtures can help you enhance a room’s beauty and build upon your favorite aesthetics. From blissful unions of metallic finishes to creative combinations of textures and silhouettes, we’re giving you a room-by-room tour of how to choose cohesive lighting that’s easy on the eyes by focusing on the expansion lighting options present with wall sconces.
Entryway Wall Sconces Set the Scene
The main entrance of your home should welcome guests and showcase your personal sense of style, and entryway sconces help you do both. Set the scene with an ambient fixture that complements an overhead chandelier, or add task lighting near a hallway tree or console table. Hone in on focal points like mirrors, artwork, or benches by flanking them with a matching pair of sconces, or use these fixtures to illuminate doorways or seating areas. The trick is to use them strategically so that the area doesn’t look cluttered and the style doesn’t look messy. Where is a wall sconce most helpful? What type of wall sconce can enhance the space and its existing lights? When in doubt, take a “less is more” approach to avoid overwhelming one of the most important areas of your home.
