Wall sconce lighting brings warmth and elegance to your home’s interior. The right light can instantly transform a room’s look and feel, and wall sconces are a prime example of how even a small accent can deliver a big statement. From traditional crystal sconces that dazzle and delight to contemporary sconces with clean lines and artistic flair, you can find the wall sconce lighting that’s right for your space at Bellacor.
Best Places for Adding Wall Sconces
Because sconce light fixtures are mounted on a wall, they can be utilized in almost any room in your home to provide accent lighting and ample illumination. While all fixtures typically serve as accent or task lighting, wall sconces offer a perfect combination of both. They are also the perfect lighting fixture to compliment your ceiling lighting and offer a secondary source of lighting to a pendant or chandelier.
The most popular placements are alongside a bathroom mirror to brighten a vanity, on either side of your bed to provide symmetry or evenly spaced throughout hallways for stylish and well-lit transitions. Wall sconces are also the perfect fixture to add if you have a small space because it eliminates the need for floor lamps or table lamps.
Depending on the space and the particular task, you can choose a sconce that lights upward, downward or both. Don’t overlook this crucial deciding factor when you’re searching for a sconce. It’s important to determine whether you need the lighting source to serve as accent lighting or task lighting. Once that has been determined, you will know whether to shop for a direct or indirect fixture. A direct fixture will have a shade that directs the light in a specific direction--usually with an opaque shade. Alternatively, an indirect fixture will have a shade or glass element that diffuses the light evenly into the room.
Types of Wall Sconces
Now that you’ve refined your search, the fun-yet-sometimes overwhelming part begins. There are finishes, shapes, functionalities and types to consider. Popular types include lantern sconces, swing arm wall lights, flush-mount sconces, candle sconces and half-moon shaped sconces. Searching by sconce type is one way to shop but you can also shop by functionality. If you’d prefer not to mess with the electrical components of installing a wall light, consider a battery-operated or plug-in wall sconce. LED sconces are also popular choices due to their energy efficiency which saves money on an electrical bill.
