A quick guide to popular sconce styles
Sconce light fixtures are mounted on and fully supported by walls, and they can be utilized in almost any room in the home to provide decorative accents and ample illumination. While all fixtures usually serve as accent or task lighting, wall sconces are typically the perfect combination of both. Position them along a bathroom mirror to brighten your vanity, place them beside your bed, or hang them in a hallway for stylish and well-lit transitions. Whether you love traditional candelabras, crisp linen shades, or contemporary LEDs, our light sconces are a clever way to illuminate and enhance any room with ease.
More tips for choosing the right wall sconces for your unique style
Style, material, uplight, downlight, and more are all factors to consider when incorporating sconces into your decor. Some simple ways to decipher the stylistic aspects of a wall sconce is to look at both the finishes along with the level of ornamentation. Fixtures with shiny metallics, clear glass, and sleek lines will fit well in both modern and contemporary rooms. Sconces with textured surfaces, understated ornamentation, and simple geometric patterns are great for a more transitional or eclectic home. If your style is more of a traditional home with European flair (think French country and Italian inspired spaces), you want to turn up the dial on ornamental details and classical profiles.
Your home decor should reflect your personal approach to style, and the wall sconce lights you choose are no exception. Your style evolves with Bellacor wall sconces! From ornate Art Deco fixtures crafted with gold finishes, prismatic crystals, and etched white glass to Early American designs made of natural iron, candelabra bulbs, and airy linen shades, there’s a lighting sconce for anyone and any space. Old World fixtures are sure to wow with draped crystals, scrolled frames, and aged brass and bronze metalwork, while Industrial styles give a nod to bygone eras with exposed bulbs, oil-rubbed bronze finishes, hand-worked iron, caged diffusers, and double-walled glass shades. Our collection of unique wall sconces complements any room with uncommon elements and distinctive charm.
Popular places for adding wall sconces
Wall sconces have their place in many rooms throughout the home, providing accent lighting and warmth. You can illuminate a long hallway with a set of evenly spaced sconces, provide great lighting in front of the bathroom mirror, provide symmetry by flanking a fireplace or architectural feature, and remove the need for table lamps on either side of your bed with the installation of sconces. You can also use sconces to create dramatic accents in your living or dining room. They are light fixtures that can work in various capacities. Depending on the space and the particular task, you can choose a sconce that lights upward, downward, or both.
Prefer a little shimmer and shine? A crystal wall sconce is an enchanting way to add a luminous glow and eye-catching sparkle to any space. Try a one light sconce with polished crystals weaved onto an intricate wrought iron frame, or hang a modern drum-shaped wall sconce light for a glamorous update to an otherwise traditional style. Adore vintage themes? Clear Swarovski crystals give a two light wall sconce plenty of heirloom-inspired charm. Radiant combinations of antique-bronze finishes, scroll detailing, and finely cut premium-grade crystals lend instant elegance to entryways, bedrooms, and living rooms, while subtle crystal beading, French-cut crystals, and draped rows of cascading crystal prisms add unmatched quality and artistry to every luminaire.
Choosing sconces for indirect and direct lighting
Wall sconce lighting can be both an accent and task oriented light source. Because of this, you can choose a fixture that is either indirect or direct. An indirect wall sconce will have a shade or glass element that diffuses the light evenly into the room. Alternatively, a sconce might have a shade that directs the light in a specific direction. This is often accomplished with an opaque or nearly opaque shade or cover. Direct lighting can light upwards toward the ceiling, bathing it in light and diffusing across the surface. It can also create pools of light downward toward a surface, and serves as task lighting.
Wall Sconce Lighting
Revive a dated bathroom vanity, add ambient glow to a seating arrangement, or bring task lighting directly to your bedside with wall sconce lighting solutions. From decadently beautiful chandelier sconces to long wall sconces with a more utilitarian feel, these designs deliver form and function to any room of your choosing. Use living room sconces made with polished metals and soft white linen shades to embrace modern simplicity, or keep things energy-efficient with contemporary LEDs. Prefer to make an artistic statement? Hang a 1-light sconce with an amber-colored glass shade, or shine a light on texture with a rippled porcelain fixture in a half-moon silhouette. These fixtures complement a variety of styles and give your home a cohesive finish with upturned or downturned lighting on demand.
