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.
If you are on the hunt too, I want to help. I gathered a collection of nine of my favorite affordable wall sconces to share with you. They all have great design but are still neutral enough to fit into any decor!
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.
