Lighting Tip: Sconces for Vertical Interest
Installing wall sconces is a design strategy that adds additional layers of lighting. These fixtures, mounted on walls at various heights, add compelling vertical interest, drawing the eye upwards and contributing to the visual depth of a room. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, wall sconces serve a practical purpose by creating a well-distributed light source. Whether flanking a mirror in the bathroom, lining a hallway, illuminating a reading chair, or framing a focal point in the living room, the upward or downward illumination they provide complements overhead lighting, reducing shadows and creating a more balanced ambiance. Wall sconces are a versatile and effective means of infusing both style and functionality into a home’s lighting design.
