Lighting can dramatically affect and influence any given situation. That's why there are different types of lighting fixtures that can help you achieve a mood you want to create. Wall lighting fixtures are an essential part of establishing the mood and creating the ambiance of a room. Sconces, swivel-arms, wall cans and make-up lights are some of the most widely used wall lighting fixtures.
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.
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.
