How to Choose Modern Wall Sconces & Wall Lights
Once you’ve chosen a style that you think plays well with your home’s interiors, think about wall sconce placement. They’re truly versatile fixtures that will look equally chic in a bedroom, office, bathroom, or living room. As a unique design element, a wall sconce effortlessly provides luminous ambient light to your interiors — no candles required.
Wall lights and sconces lend themselves particularly well to being used in multiples. In pairs, they can create symmetry positioned on either side of a bed, living room mantel, kitchen sideboard, or bathroom mirror. Modern wall lamps can also be placed at intervals along a hallway or stairwell for well-distributed lighting that naturally connects one space to another.
When it comes to positioning your wall sconces, a good rule to follow is to hang your wall sconces between 60” and 72” above the floor, depending on the height of your ceilings. If you’re hanging multiple along a hallway, try to keep them at least 6’ apart. If you’re interested in using your wall lights for specific purposes, like reading or working, consider a swing-arm wall lamp or adjustable wall light that affords you increased control over the direction and position of light.
