What’s not to like about wall sconces?
They are a great way to add accent lighting to many areas of your home.
They are rarely the focal point, yet many times they accentuate the focal point in a room.
They are a favorite item to add to the interior decor by custom homebuilders and homebuyers alike.
I see hard-wired wall sconces in either custom homes or upscale homes the majority of the time.
It shows that the builder is really trying to cater to his/her customers wants and needs.
I am constantly perplexed, though, as to why home builders in more ordinary homes don’t employ them more often.
A little wall sconce goes a long way, in my eyes.
Where To Put Wall Sconces
Here are some of the many places in your home that wall sconces would look great:
- exterior garage
- home theater room
- front entry
- dining room
…and I’m sure you can think of some others.
Photos Of Wall Sconces
I’ve got some photos of wall sconces here that I think you’ll enjoy.
These were taken while my wife and I were looking at homes under construction in our area, as well as some open houses, etc.
Maybe you’ll be able to get a few new ideas for your home!
I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
