Hanging a Wall Sconce
The specific instructions for installing a wall sconce will differ depending on the type of fixture you choose. Be sure to consult a licensed electrician before you hang your wall sconce to ensure you have the wiring configuration needed to power your fixture. Our wall sconces include direct wire or plug in, and some are convertible!
Hallway Sconce Lighting
Sconces make great hallway light fixtures. Sconces can be evenly placed in long and short hallway spaces to keep even illumination as you move through your home. If your hallway features art pieces or photos, sconce lighting can help you accent the images you love the most and want your guests to admire.
Sconces for Reading
Sconces can be placed on either side of a bed or above a home office or study desk space to give adequate reading light. Having excellent light is important for a space where regular reading occurs to prevent eye fatigue. To multiply the light from a pair of office or study sconces, hang the sconces on either side of a mirror.
