Sconce lighting – get to know what they are

Sconce lighting fixtures are ones that are fixed on, and take support of the walls. These fixtures are generally covered on all the sides and have opening at the top, which means that the light is dispersed from the top.  They are known to hold dull lights, mostly low powered lights and are not suitable for bright light requirements. They get their names from the traditional lighting fixtures in the olden times, which were known to hold torches. Due to the fact that they attach to wall they could be used in any place in a house except the kitchen. Here are the places where one could fit them in a house.

Living Room

Sconce lighting fixture are great for living rooms, if one prefers low lights there. Many places are known to use them in combination with central chandeliers, opting for either of them or both of them together.


The lighting fixture is perfect for bedrooms, especially for people who do not prefer their bedrooms to be brightly lit up. This enables one to maintain a romantic ambient setting in the bedroom.


Another place where the sconce lighting fixtures are perfect for use are the bathrooms. The dressers in the bathrooms are known to have lights specifically for them, so all one needs is this type of lighting to shed some light. The sconce fixtures are perfect for that and one can also be assured of reduced power consumption.


The ideal setting to fix one of these lighting fixtures seems to be outdoors. Be it a balcony or the garden region, the sconce lighting fixtures are apt for these locations.
