Published at Thursday, 11 October 2018. Sconces. By Mitzi Valdez.
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.
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.
Another good spot to install wall sconces is your bathroom. Place a sconce squarely on both sides of the mirror, above the wash basin. Alternatively if room doesn't allow it, you could place them directly onto the mirror, maybe one on each of the lower or upper corners. The aesthetics of your bathroom will look their best if you use candles.
