The popularity of wall sconces has taken off this year, and for good reason. They’re an incredibly versatile wall light fixture. Not to mention beautiful to look at.
Wall sconces also come in a variety of different styles and can be placed in any room.
In the past, the only time I would encounter a wall sconce or any wall light fixture would be while staying at a hotel. They’re used to light hallways and bedsides. They create soft lighting that brings a beautiful ambiance to any space.
The candle wall sconce was very popular in the 17th and 18th centuries and can still be found in their original state in historic homes and buildings.
How To Use Wall Sconces
Modern-day applications embrace both electric and candle wall sconces. As a decor accent, sconces bring a sense of distinction and elegance to your space. What could be better than that?

There are several different styles and we’ve found a great buying guide online. The most popular types of electric wall sconces are the half-moon sconce, the shaded wall sconce and wallchieres. That being said, you really can’t go wrong with a wall sconce.
