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.
Most externally placed sconces utilize a single light bulb. A number of them have a half-moon shaped lid that shields the bulb from view and imparts an upward shaft of light on the exterior walls. There are also wall sconces that have a full-cover opaque lens that renders a moon-glow effect, with the light dispersing around the fixture. From traditionally ornate designs to sleek-lined simple motifs, there is a range of styles available in the market. You can find them nowadays in various art deco style, rustic or contemporary and modern. There are even some with a shape of a leaf, which are really elegant to look at.
No matter which candle wall sconce style is chosen, the candles should be chosen to add their own special beauty. The strong look of a pillar candle or the delicate appearance of a tea candle makes very different statements. Refreshing the appearance of your home is as easy as choosing another color or style of candle. You might prefer strong vibrant colors for winter and more gentle pastels for spring. These sconces are attractive in daylight and more so in the dusk.
Wall sconces are a great ways to add lots of ambient light as well as adding a unique design element to your homes decor. You can accent a picture or unique piece of decor in your home. Wall sconces can also be used in some general lighting applications such as using a few of them down a hallway. This is a great use because you can have the light shine up or even down. To create unique and different lighting elements that can make a hallway feel less drab.
