Bathroom Sconce

For a variation of bathroom lighting that can be purposeful and aesthetically pleasing at the same time, a bathroom sconce lighting fixture may be the perfect solution. With such an incredible variety of different sconce brands, manufacturers, and style themes to choose from, a bathroom sconce can be found to match nearly any type of bathroom decor theme. A bathroom sconce is essentially a light which is attached to a wall with some sort of ornamental bracket, which provides a highly versatile array of different product options since the basic design elements are so simple. To give consumers some additional information about these useful and attractive bathroom lighting product options, some of the primary options when it comes to choosing a bathroom sconce will now be presented.

Single Bathroom Sconces

A single bathroom sconce is basically a sconce that features only one light bulb socket in its design. This makes single sconces like these especially suitable to the kinds of lighting situations that are relatively smaller and requiring a low amount of light overall. For these situations, a single sconce is generally preferable to a double or triple sconce since a double or triple is most likely going to provide too much light in an especially small space. For bathrooms that are relatively large, double and triple sconces should be considered for their ability to project significant amounts of light throughout a room.

Double Bathroom Sconces

With a double bathroom sconce, not only is an ample amount of light going to be produced, but also new stylistic qualities can be utilized in the design. The kinds of symmetry that are used in the design of double sconces are preferable to many people for their visual appeal and balance. Double bathroom sconces can be purchased in a wide variety of material compositions, and light orientations.

Horizontal Sconces

A horizontal sconce is one that features its light arrangement in the form of a horizontal line. This design is used significantly more often than a vertical sconce design would be, in part because most consumers prefer it’s aesthetic qualities, and also because vertical light arrangements are not always quite as efficient as horizontal ones in terms of their ability to project light throughout a room.

Vertical Sconces

Although vertical sconce designs tend to be used a bit less than horizontally arranged designs, some of them are actually very well crafted and can provide a bathroom with an especially unique lighting fixture. Using vertical bathroom sconces can truly set a bathroom a cut above the rest in terms of decorative quality, when chosen and implemented tastefully.

Style Variations

The different styles of bathroom oriented sconces are typically characterized not only by the amount and arrangement of lights they feature, but also by the kinds of materials that compose the bracket fixture. All different kinds of metals and finishes are used on different bathroom sconce designs, leaving it up to the decorator or home owner to decide which sconce designs are right for their bathroom(s).

Candle Wall Sconces

For a wall mounted lighting fixture that will add significant style and function to virtually any area of a home, candle wall sconces are a good product option to consider. This variation of wall sconce is generally designed to have the look and aesthetic value of an actual candle and candle holder, and for this reason many of these product options are designed to have electronic candle features on them which are made to look like the real thing. Some candle sconces are designed to have this kind of electronic candle feature, but it is also coupled with an oil heating element, and these particular models can be used essentially as fake scented candles. With the technology used today in the production of synthetic scented candles, candle wall sconces can now be incredibly close to the real thing while still utilizing non combustible materials which are safe for homes, and the people that live in them. In order to inform consumers about the nature of candle wall sconces, some additional product information will now be addressed and discussed.

Single Candle Wall Sconces

Some candle wall sconce models are designed with having only one candle or light in their structure. This makes for a great design to use in relatively smaller spaces, or living spaces which require a small amount of ambient lighting. Setting the mood is made easy with the use of these single candle sconces, since the light they emit tends to be very warm and soft, reflecting the nature of the light that would be given off of an actual burning candle. Single candle sconces tend to be preferred by some people for the way they can be placed in many different areas around a home; single wall sconces like these can be arranged with a much higher degree of versatility than candle sconces that contain multiple “candles” in the design of the sconce.

Multiple Candle Wall Sconces

For candle oriented wall sconces that contain multiple different candle lighting fixtures in each unit, there are many different product options reflecting this basic design quality. Depending on the individual decorative features used in a home or other residential space, certain models and styles of candle wall sconces are probably going to be preferred for their ability to effectively match and enhance a specific decor theme. Multiple candle units are also preferred for spaces where there is only enough room for a single wall sconce mount, but a need for an ample amount of light.

General Uses of Candle Oriented Wall Sconces

When addressing some of the typical uses of candle wall sconces, one of the most popular uses is mounting these sconces in bathrooms or other relatively small living spaces. Also, another area where these lighting fixtures are often installed is living or dining rooms, since the passive and stylish lighting provided by candle wall sconces is often preferred for these kinds of spaces. Regardless of where a home or residence owner should decide to install candle oriented wall sconces in their homes and living spaces, the decision to do so typically results in significant increases in a home or living space’s aesthetic and practical value.
