Wall sconce lighting is a functional and decorative piece that attaches to a wall and holds either a candle or a bulb. We can track its history to before the 1400s. It was just a half circle made out of wood or metal and held a small candle. It was only used during these times for functional purposes. Today they are much more complex and decorative.
Bathroom Lighting Tips - Using Wall Sconces to Enhance Your Bathroom. A house will not function without a bathroom, and this this exactly why this room needs to have the same attention as the rest of the house is getting during decoration and re-decoration. What is puzzling though is that usually homeowners make it less of a priority. It is one of the smallest rooms in the house, yet one of the most frequently used, which means it is one with the highest traffic in the house.
If you are using sconces to accent a point of interest, like an interesting table, then make sure the effect is a soft glow that is not overpowering. You should also consider the layout of your furniture. Sconces should add to the atmosphere and experience of your room, not detract from it. Do not place sconces directly where someone will be sitting.
Using these pieces in the family room is a great idea as well. They can be used, not only for decoration and a bit of light, but also as a shelf to hold that special photo. If you find one that doubles as a small shelf it works well to double up on them and place them on the wall on either side of a large picture with two smaller pictures sitting on the shelves. It gives a feel of balance and organization while showing off those special photos. At the same time it gives a feel of home to the room.
