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.
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.
The plate of a candle sconce holds the candleholder or if you have tapered candles, you can have candles sconces that hold candelabras. There are a variety of styles available in wall sconces for candles and when you light the candles in them, they give the room a warm, inviting glow. Although you can use just about any kind of candles in sconces- votive, tealight, pillar or taper - your best bet is a dripless candle. Those made from paraffin or beeswax are best if you don`t want to spend time peeling candle wax off the floors and walls.
