Introduction to Wall Sconces
Wall lights, otherwise known as sconces, are perhaps the most versatile type of lighting solution, offering a sophisticated and distinctive look to your home that adds charm and grace to your walls, while also providing illumination and brightness anyplace in your home. A wall sconce works in a variety of places from your living room, bedroom, or bathroom, to along hallways and dark corridors. In kitchens and home offices they offer an alternative to overhead lighting and task lights. A wall light fixture like a wall sconce can be just your ticket to set the right tone with both form and function that also does not take up precious space real estate. Wall sconce lighting has a knack for creating focal points wherever they are placed and create an elegant light set up that stands apart from other traditional lighting methods like lamps. If you are looking to add a touch of whimsy, style, and dazzling beauty to your home, LuxeDecor has an extensive selection of modern wall sconces or antique crystal wall sconces that are the perfect balance between form and functionality, and are sure to enhance the beauty of your home and show off your unique flair and style .

Decorating With Wall Sconces In Your Home
Perfect lighting depends on using several layers of illumination in a space to create the perfect ambiance in a room. Flooding a room with too much light has the effect of instilling an uninviting, sterile aura to a space. While too little lights creates a dull and drab room that can ultimately destroy the mood a room. Use a mixture of lighting solutions to boost the appeal of a room and add dimension to a space. Using sconces along with pendant and even recessed lighting offers the best possible balance for lighting levels. Sconces are perfect for ambient lighting, and save space when used for accent and task lighting. When it comes to sconces, it’s also important to remember that light not only makes a difference, but the shadows they cast. Experiment with interesting shapes and dramatic shadows to create an inspiring lighting design that not only provides utilitarian function, but unique aesthetic value that reflects your style and personality. At LuxeDecor, the possibilities are nearly limitless.
