Many people prefer using sconces instead of standard candleholders, especially if there are young children or pets in the home. While a pillar candle displayed on the tabletop could be easily knocked over, a candle sconce provides better flame protection. However, when attaching a sconce to the wall, it`s important to use proper anchors for the sake of safety. After all, if your sconce were to fall from the wall while in use, it could be quite dangerous. You should also never let a candle sconce burn unattended, especially overnight, and always use non-drip candles.
When choosing a sconce, keep in mind the scale of the room and the wall you want to hang it on. A very large sconce would over power a small wall. Likewise, a sconce that is delicate and smaller would be lost on a large wall.
Probably one of the best advantages of installing electric wall sconces inside your home is that they are the best lighting source for illuminating dark corners. You could put overhead lights everywhere to light up your entire room, but this creates a very sterile atmosphere that is not very appealing. by using an electric sconce you will not only light up those dark corners, but you will do it with class and elegance.
Candle sconces go way back the 16th century. There are old homes that have brass candle sconces that are really antique. These are a great find indeed. If you want to add the same elegance to your home with brass candle sconces, you can shop for some on your local retail store or you conveniently purchase them online.
It is a good idea to take the décor already in the room into account when choosing a sconce. You want to blend the sconce with the look you already have or are trying to achieve. For example, a wrought iron sconce set with a fleur-de-lis design would enhance a Tuscan dining room. A shiny modern sconce would be awkward in that space.
