Sconces have form that can`t be duplicated by anything else. For example, many people like to read in bed just before they go to sleep. A ceiling or table lamp produce a lot of light, but are not as efficient as a reading sconce light. Why? Putting the light directly behind you at the right angle illuminates the pages very well. Doorway sconces are another example of a hard to duplicate form. If you don`t have a roof on your porch, a sconce light is obviously the best choice. What other choice would there be?
The plate of a candle sconce holds the candleholder or if you have tapered candles, you can have candles sconces that hold candelabras. There are a variety of styles available in wall sconces for candles and when you light the candles in them, they give the room a warm, inviting glow. Although you can use just about any kind of candles in sconces- votive, tealight, pillar or taper - your best bet is a dripless candle. Those made from paraffin or beeswax are best if you don`t want to spend time peeling candle wax off the floors and walls.
