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.
Ambient Lighting - For those not a 100% sure on what this type of lighting actually involves, it simply provides an area or room with general illumination. In terms of wall lights for an ambient effect, if the room has high ceilings you can install sconces high up on the wall. Regardless of whether you utilize wall sconces or ceiling ones, good ambient illumination should not be harsh but should still flood the room with enough brightness that you are able to see and move around.
The simple process involved in the installation of wall light fixtures allows you to run wild with ideas, in the end, producing artistic impressions that match the home decor. You can choose from a wide range of lighting devices available. Some of these devices could be make up lights, wall cans, sconces and swivel arms. Consulting house decoration catalogs and electrical installation technicians should help you reach a decision on the kind of lighting system you'd like for your room.
