Wall sconces are some of the most versatile and practical light fixtures available! They come in a variety of great styles to add specialized illumination in any number of areas of the home. Wall sconces are particularly useful for lighting transitional spaces such as hallways, stairways, or entries where there may not be room for other types of fixtures. However, that is by no means their only application, as sconces are equally at home in dining rooms, offices, bedrooms, or bathrooms. Certain types of sconces may fit better in different spaces though, so it can be helpful to consider different styles based on the intended use for the fixture. For example, adjustable swing arm styles can be ideal as bedside sconces or as wall mounted reading lamps in an office, while a fixed position candle wall sconce may be more appropriate for a formal dining room or a stairway.
If you’re searching for a sconce that doesn’t require any permanent wiring, a plug in wall sconce may be a good option for your space. Plug in sconces offer the same style and functionality of a traditional sconce, while providing easy installation and flexibility in terms of re-positioning the light. There are also a few different battery powered sconces to choose from, which offer the most flexibility in placement, as they don’t even need to be placed near electrical outlets. However, there are not as many choices of style in battery powered sconces, and their power source will need to be replaced periodically.
