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.
Although you might think that these sconces are always designed with an antique-style look, this is simply not the case. While you will certainly find a wide variety of Victorian-styled sconces from which to choose, they are not the only option you`ll find. For example, if you have a rustic or cabin-styled house, a couple of rustic candle sconces would add the perfect decorating touch. There are also sconces designed with sleek contemporary design features, making them the perfect choice for modern-styled rooms. Basically, you`ll want to look for a candle sconce that is designed in a way that will complement the room`s overall decorating style.
Electric wall sconces are not the only option out there for illuminating your home. One such alternative is a candle sconce. Candle sconces are an attractive alternative, but they have a few flaws that make the electric sconce a better option. Candle wall sconces are an open flame that releases smoke, and they can actually stain your wall black if you are not careful. They are also a potential fire hazard if you accidentally knock them over. I`ll admit they are beautiful decorations, but the potential dangers outweigh their beauty in my opinion.
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.
Generally, you can use wall sconces with a handle anywhere in the house. As long as the style is right, it will match the overall interior design. But to be on the safe side, sconces with handles are best used for outdoors. Another perfect place to use them is on hallways.
