Usually, wall sconces are placed along the walls of hallways or flanking doorways, adding light to areas of the home where it may be needed most. Nowadays, it's even alright to place a wall sconce or two in places like bathrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Installing a couple wall sconces in your bathroom in place of vanity lights or track lighting will create an open air, yet tranquil ambiance while without compromising on luminosity.
If you are not quite sure what style your furniture actually is, believe me, you are not alone. To make things easier to calculate, all you really need to know is what your furniture looks like. Take a piece of paper and a pen. Write down the type of wood that is in the room along with the color of the wood. Does your wood furniture have any metal accents? If the room is furnished with a lot of chrome, put that in your notes. Is glass a major part of the room décor? Does your wall art and decorations center over a single theme? Write all this information down so you can make an educated decision on the type of wall lighting would go well.
Task Lighting - If you don't know what this type of lighting is, the name essentially describes it - whether you are reading, doing homework or cooking, task illumination will help you to perform these tasks. Wall lights can function quite effectively for completing tasks, as long as they are close in and have low hanging fixtures. This will place the sconces at the required height, whether that is illuminating a couch, desk or bench top.
You came home one day tired from a day's work. When you opened the door, you were greeted by this romantic, subdued lighting and a smell of vanilla in the air.

The kids will want to play and enjoy their time in an area that suits their activities. There may be dress ups, colouring, drawing, building things, videos and reading, all in the same area. Consider what sort of lighting you need in that area and if you need lighting at all, especially if the area is usually being used during the day. Most area, despite being used in the day time will need some sort of lighting, and you may want special features such as dimmer switches or spot lights. Safety is obviously an important factor when it comes to planning the kids area. Ensure a qualified electrician fits all the lights and that no loose wires are present.
