Many people don't consider the value and beauty that wall sconces add to a room because subtlety is their main purpose. They create general or accented light while still remaining discreet and unobtrusive. Not only are they a significant source of ambient light, they also add a decorative flair to any room. Their function is often hidden by their elegant presence. These mounted wall fixtures throw a dramatic lighting effect along the entire surface of a wall, adding decoration and texture to a room while still being able to illuminate it. And unlike traditional lighting, this type creates a unique look to a home due to the fact that they come in a large variety of styles and designs. Plus, they don't overpower the eyes, but instead create a soft feel to any room.
Where Function Meets Form. Sconces aren't just beautiful; they are practical as well. They create more space in your living quarters. Though traditional lamps create the same visual appeal, they can also be burdensome, awkward, and clumsy because they can take up room. Wall sconces, on the other hand, can actually create space in a house for other furnishings or walkways. Also they are very useful when lighting small areas of the house, such as dark hallways or corners that traditional lighting sources can't target. Plus, if you attach a dimming system to them, you will be able to save on energy bills as well.
Style and Design. One of the distinct advantages of sconces is their ability to come in many different appearances. Like any lighting source, there an infinite number of styles (contemporary, transitional, rustic, etc.) and materials (copper, metal, ceramic, wrought iron, Italian glass, etc.) available so that you can match the fixtures with your own personal style. However, one distinct advantage of sconces is their prominent beauty and uniqueness, and candle sconces are testament to that promise.
