Normally they are not super bright. They are just subtle and give off just enough light to add a little accent here and there and to provide just enough light to see where one's going. So maybe today you walk around the side of your house on a path you‘ve created, but at night you stumble through the dark trying to get to your backyard!
One quick way to update the look of your home is with the judicious use of sconces for accent lighting. Sconces are an inexpensive way to add color and depth to the walls. In particular, the gentle light from candle wall sconces can give a subtle glow to your wall coverings while providing practical illumination.
Made of natural materials, there are sconces fashioned in any number of shapes, from simple rectangles, semi-circles, stars, and cylinders to an inverted semi-circular stair step shape known as the ziggurat. There are many materials used including clay, ceramics, glass and various metals. Regardless of what style you choose, you will love the luminosity that filters through the sconce in a soft, ambient light. With the current technology in lighting, you will never have to squint when looking directly at them while lit.
Metal and matte glass sconces contain specific drawings and cutouts such as Acoma bears, geckos, kokopellis, chilies, ponies, petroglyphs, and many cowboy designs. There is even a wall sconce shaped like a cowboy hat. Most sconces are available in your choice of outdoor or indoor wiring and you can even buy just the cover to replace a cover on an existing sconce.
Indoor sconces are an unobtrusive size, yet offer lighting for both functional and decorative uses. They work wherever you want soft light, such as in an entryway, hallway, bathroom, bedroom and in the ever-popular theater room. These sconces can also add complimentary ˝mood˝ lighting around a favorite Southwest painting or gorgeous entry art display.
