The short answer is, “yes.” If you have a wall sconce that requires hardwire installation, and there’s not junction box around, you are going to have to have an electrician install a box and wire it for you. If you are an advanced DIY type, you could do this yourself.
In the absence of specific features to be highlighted, like a framed picture, a mirror or an archway, place sconces eight-to-10 feet apart, creating a continuous band of soft, diffused light along a wall or around the room. Place sconces closer together, as needed, above a fireplace or on both sides of a mirror. Place them farther apart if they are to function singly. You might center a single sconce over a buffet on one wall and place two in the corners of the opposite wall, 15 feet or more apart. Especially for curved- or half-round-shaded sconces, do the glare test from a variety of directions.
Perfect lighting is always about using several layers of illumination in the right manner. Flooding the room with too much light destroys the warm, inviting aura of the space. Too little light leads to dullness and ultimately destroys the mood of the room. Using sconces along with pendant and recessed lights is the ideal solution to get the best possible balance. Sconce as ambient lighting fixtures serve well in long corridors and livings spaces with a very high ceiling. They also combine accent lighting with ambient illumination to boost the appeal of the room in more ways than one.
