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.
Lighting professionals counsel thinking in layers of light to make a room functional and attractive: ambient, or overall, light; task-light for reading and manual chores; decorative light to highlight areas of the room, pictures or other accessories; and accent light, which can bring drama and focus to an architectural feature or small area of the room. Use sconces for decorative and accent light; even a large chandelier, they point out, may provide good table-light while leaving parts of the room shadowy or dark.
Unlike many other lighting fixtures and large lamps, wall sconces seem appropriate in pretty much any part of the house. From the long entryway and patio to the bathroom and laundry, these wall-mounted wonders can alter the appeal of any setting in an instant. And here are a few simple tips and pointers that will help you in revitalizing your home with wall sconces
