A brass wall candle sconce with a hurricane lamp holds a candle inside an old-fashioned lamp. This type of candle sconce will help you feel that your home is a cozy and safe haven, reminiscent of the days of the pioneers. On cold winter nights when the wind is whistling outside, you can relax with the glow of the candle reflecting off the wall. When you lose the power, you will still have light and you can feel safe with these candle sconces. The hurricane lamp style of sconce keeps the flame of the candle away from the wall and there is no danger of the candle tipping over.
A wall sconce is often used as an accent item. They are often used in pairs on either side of a mirror or painting. They also look striking in their own. Of course ones holding live plants must have adequate sunlight. Those with candles or electric bulbs can enliven dark corners. Many people think these items are for only the living room or entryway. However, these versatile decorations can beautify a wall in any room. Sconces can go above the headboard in the bedroom or flank the mirror in the bathroom. It is always a good idea to hang a sconce, particularly if it is heavy or will be heavy when loaded, over a wall stud. Hardware and home improvement stores generally carry inexpensive stud finders to help determine the safest place to hang a sconce or other decorative item.
