At the Fireplace

A pair of sconces flanking the fireplace is a classic lighting element that never goes out of style.  Not only do sconces highlight the mantelpiece, but they add a symmetrical element to what is most likely the focal point of the room.

Dining Room

Instead of bright overhead lighting in the dining room, use wall sconces to augment good old-fashioned candlelight at the dinner table.

The kitchen can always benefit from additional lighting.  Sconces add a stylish touch to areas in the kitchen that may need extra illumination.  Sconces can also be a nice decorative element in the kitchen.

Bathroom

The bathroom is where we see the majority of sconce lighting.  Many times, sconces are installed on either side of the mirror above the sink.  This provides a good balance of light in addition to any overhead fixtures.  Change the style of the lighting for an update or incorporate a unique design for something special.

Hallway

Often the hallway of the home is neglected, except for a pre-installed overhead light.  Dress up your hallway with pretty wall sconces.  Use them to highlight artwork as well.

Bedroom

Sconces are the perfect lighting solution for a smaller bedroom.  By having lights on the walls, you save space on the bedside tables where lamps are usually placed.  Installed at just the right height on either side of the headboard, sconces provide the perfect illumination for reading in bed.
