I also was contemplating on whether or not to install the sconces center of the nightstands or closer to the bed. Even though I am all about symmetry, I felt the sconces needed to be closer for a better light angle. I found a tip that recommend to place bedroom wall sconces at least 8 to 10 ft apart. When I measured out 8 ft for our bed, the placement seemed perfect! So that’s what I decided to go with for our lights. Just for a reference, the distance between where the cord cover is mounted on the wall and the edge of our bed is about 7″.
So now that you know about my sconces, lets talk about where to install them. A great way to decide on placement is to get into bed and assume your normal reading position. Then measure from the floor up to a few inches above the shoulder. This measurement will tell you how high the bottom of the shade should be positioned. Chris and I took turns doing this to make sure the height would be a good fit for both of us and still be symmetrical. We decided on about 50″ from the floor, which puts them roughly about 4-5″ above our shoulders.
There are plenty of choices when it comes to wall sconces. The styles are simply endless, and you can get everything ranging from Victorian and Colonial sconces to super sleek and timeless pieces like the Serge Mouille Lamps. Also consider the size and placement of the sconce before you actually make the buy. While large and grand sconces are apt for accent lighting, task and ambient lighting requires more modest and focused lights.
