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.
Wall sconces are available for various purposes. They may be flat on the top to hold precious photos, figurines, or other keepsakes. They can be designed especially to hold candles or electric lights. Some of the electric lights may resemble candle flames. Some may even be hollow to hold real or artificial plants. Simply thinking about what an area needs-light, a display area, or greenery- can help a person make the perfect decision as to which one will best suit the space in question and the needs of the homeowner.
