Wall Lighting Fixtures & Sconces

Wall lighting fixtures and sconces can make a big difference in the appearance of a house. Many people have installed new fixtures or sconces in a room, and they are amazed at the fresh new look that they give a room. This type of lighting can be used in almost any room in the house. It is a good way to have light without the shadows that can sometimes result from ceiling lights or lamps. If you use wall lighting fixtures and sconces in a small room like a bathroom, they may be the only lighting that you need in the room. Many bathrooms have fixtures with multiple bulbs over a sink. This makes it easy to see when shaving or applying makeup.

FixturesThere are many different types of fixtures and sconces that are made to fit into any décor. These include traditional, modern, and contemporary styles. Fixtures may have unique finishes that give them a totally different look, even in the same style of lighting. They may use different types of bulbs that also provide a totally different look, from incandescent and fluorescent bulbs to LED bulbs. There are hundreds of styles of fixtures and sconces to choose from, and many of these can be purchased online. Lighting companies often have websites where it is possible to browse through many pages of fixtures to find those that coordinate with the décor of a room in the best way.

Wall sconces look very beautiful in a dining room, especially if it is a formal dining room with a chandelier. There are matching sconces that also have crystal pieces that extend from the sconce and hang down. Sometimes they are placed on either side of a buffet table to define a serving area. Sconces can be a good choice in a less formal dining area as well. If the room is contemporary, attractive chrome or black metal styles are available that coordinate with the furniture and décor of the room.

Another popular place to put sconces is above a seating area on the wall above a sofa. They give off a gentle glow that is easy on the eyes because it is not coming from above like an overhead light would do. Some people like to use them above their beds for the same reason. If the sconces can accommodate a bulb that is bright enough for reading, they eliminate the bothersome problem of light glaring in the eyes.

Fluorescent wall lighting is a good choice of lighting in a study or in a child’s bedroom above a desk. The light from these fixtures is strong enough for reading or writing. Another choice of wall fixtures is a contemporary directional light that can be moved from side to side to provide the light where it is needed. Fixtures are made with one single light or two lights. They can also be used to add style and beauty to a room. Some sconces have very low lighting capabilities, but they complement other lighting fixtures or simply add an interesting look to a room. Wall torchiers are an example of this type of lighting.

Wall lighting fixtures or sconces are also used outdoors. They are made to withstand the rain, snow, and other abuse that they take from extreme weather conditions. Many modern houses have wall lighting fixtures on either side of the garage. They may look like antique lanterns or they could have a contemporary look that is simple. These lights are also used on either side of a front door to provide a warm welcome to guests as they arrive. In the back of the house, they are often used to light the entryway to a back door or to provide a glow to a deck or patio.
