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.
The beauty about wall lighting in general is that most are designed as directional lights, which basically means they're either upward facing, downward facing, or diagonal lights. Wall sconces are generally designed as such. But if it's reading lights or adjustable lighting that you're looking for, then perhaps you should consider investing in wall lamps. Wall lamps function the same way a wall sconce does, except most are designed to be adjustable, either extending out and away from the wall or alongside it. Usually designed to work as reading lamps, wall lamps are situated lower on the wall unlike its wall sconce counterpart. Of course, you could easily utilize a wall lamp in place of a wall sconce in hallways and dining rooms.
In most rooms it is advisable to use multiple light sources in order to create the right feel. Interior designers often refer to these multiple sources as layers of light. These start with general ambient lighting, with task lighting and/or accent lighting adding additional layers. Let's explain this in more detail. Ambient lighting is the general illumination of the space. Natural sunlight provides good ambient lighting during the day, but ceiling or wall lights are usually used for ambient lighting when the sunlight has faded.
