Wall Sconces are a stylish way to provide general illumination in a variety of rooms. Commonly, Littman Bros lighting experts will recommend wall sconces in hallways, foyers, and dining rooms. The intention is to provide additional ambiance and mood lighting while also offering functional illumination.
Hanging Wall Sconces
For installations where there is not an existing junction box or hanging bracket, there are a few factors to consider when determining the appropriate hanging height of a Wall Sconce. Generally, it is recommended to hang a light source (bulb) 60 inches from the floor. Each room and fixture is different so here are a couple things to consider in order to ensure ideal illumination:
Always make sure the light source is not exposed. Exposed light sources can be uncomfortable for your family and guests.
Determine the function of the room. Example – Dining Rooms you will want to measure from the seated position.
Swing Arm Sconces
Swing Arm Lamps provide great task lighting while not taking up any space on a desk or bedside table. Selecting the right Swing Arm Lamp depends on the task at hand – fixtures with larger shades provide broad and general illumination. These fixtures are great for reading light when installed above a bedside table. Fixtures with more directional light are great for work spaces.
