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.
Don't forget the living room. This is one area that you certainly should to install sconce lighting in. If you have a fireplace, position a sconce near each of the two upper corners, or even halfway down each side. This will make for a very romantic setting. What if you don't own a fireplace? Try the same setup with your TV stand. One place in your living room which you should consider placing wall sconces is your doorway. Imagine how welcome your visitors will feel when they walk through.
Modern wall sconces are very popular with many homeowners, however there are many raised eyebrows when they find out that initially wall sconces came into existence long before electricity was discovered. They were used to secure candles to the walls of homes, from modest residences to extravagant manors, and provide lighting to rooms, staircases, hallways, and the exteriors of dwellings.
