Suggested placement heights range from 60-to-72 inches above the floor. For a room with 8-foot ceilings, place sconces between 60 and 66 inches high; place them 66-to-72 inches high in rooms with ceilings over 9 feet. In some rooms, like the living room or den, it may be helpful to position sconces roughly halfway between floor and ceiling, so that some of the light can assist with reading or other visually based activities. In the dining room, your primary goals are to enhance room light while keeping glare out of diners` eyes. Make a cardboard template of the sconce you plan to use, tape a small flashlight to the back and ask a friend to hold template where you plan to mount it. Sitting down, you can spot and correct glare problems immediately.
Their ability to maximize precious leg room and desk space is the biggest selling point of wall sconces. Since many modern homes and big city apartments are short on space, sconces add immense value by simply staying out of the way. While a floor lamp or even a bedside table lamp take up valuable room, wall-mounted sconces free up space so that you can use it for other tasks. While they are currently pretty popular as bedside lights, sconces can also serve you well in the home office and library by replacing the traditional table lamps. A tidy way to clear up the desk!
This pair of very French, industrial-looking sconces, shown above, add both illumination and interest to a living room that is already a mixture of styles and pieces. With their added versatility—they can be positioned in an almost infinite number of ways—they fit right into the décor.
