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.
Sconces are wall fixtures that are based upon lighting fixtures that held candles or torches during the days of castles and palaces. Today, sconces come in both traditional and contemporary designs. There are designs which require lampshades; others cast light in all direction, still others cast light either up or down. Usually placed in pairs, sconces flank doors, windows, paintings and even the breast of a fireplace. These can also be placed over a pair of chairs. When doing so, each sconce should be centered directly over the chair. A tall narrow piece of furniture, such as a high boy, a tall secretary desk, or a grand father clock, may be flanked with a pair of sconces. A sconce is usually placed 5'6" from the floor, although it may vary depending on the specific requirement of the job. Low level lighting is usually recommended for this type of wall fixture.
