Materials for these can vary widely and may include wood, metal, plaster, ceramics, and more. Choosing a material can be important in terms of both function and décor. If the sconce will hold a burning candle or electrical fixture, a non-flammable material would be the safest choice. In a room with lots of wood, a sconce made of matching or complementary wood may be a beautiful selection. Metal, glass, or ceramic pieces can add nice accents to any room.
A wall sconce is often used as an accent item. They are often used in pairs on either side of a mirror or painting. They also look striking in their own. Of course ones holding live plants must have adequate sunlight. Those with candles or electric bulbs can enliven dark corners. Many people think these items are for only the living room or entryway. However, these versatile decorations can beautify a wall in any room. Sconces can go above the headboard in the bedroom or flank the mirror in the bathroom. It is always a good idea to hang a sconce, particularly if it is heavy or will be heavy when loaded, over a wall stud. Hardware and home improvement stores generally carry inexpensive stud finders to help determine the safest place to hang a sconce or other decorative item.
However, don`t be limited to these suggestions. Be creative. You can always try mixing and matching different kinds of materials. I have a friend who combined chrome and brass creating a surreal mix of the old and the new. Or, if you want, you can also use a western motif while adding a dash here and there of oriental design. If you`re having trouble creating the right mix of materials, though you can always hire a professional designer. Not only are they good when it comes to designing bathrooms, they also know a lot about bathroom lighting sconces and which materials mix well with others.
