Adding Wall Sconces in Your Home

One design element homeowners often overlook is lighting. Not only is lighting huge when it comes to making the space feel welcoming, but the fixtures themselves can really take it to the next level. When designing a space, we always discuss the lighting in each space. Is there enough natural light and artificial light? Are we creating an inviting space? Which fixtures will compliment the overall design?

One lighting element we love to incorporate are sconces. Using wall and shelving sconces instantly makes the space feel high-end and custom, and just really finishes off each space.

In our recent Mapleton New Build we used sconces on the living room built-ins. They help guide your eye up and also add that touch that really completes the room.

We also incorporated wall sconces in the master bedroom by flanking each side of the bed with them. This adds additional reading light and also dimension to the space. We used these specific ones because there was no hardwiring done previously. All we had to do was secure the actual fixture to the wall and plug it in!

In the Modern Farmhouse we used sconces in the office shelving. Just like the Mapleton New Build, it really draws your eye up and frames the built-ins. We also love how the darker finish compliments the black door and other black accents in the room.

You can also incorporate them in your kitchen. Put them over a sink or above shelving (as shown below) to add interest and most importantly additional lighting!

    Okay, I know those probably aren’t bowling pins up there on that shelf in the first pic but I think I love them. I want to find some old pins and paint their red stripes gold now, or any other fun color. Sorry, random, but thanks for the inspiration. 😉 and the sconces are fab.
    You never know where you’ll find something that inspires you, right!?
