Not only are wall sconces and wall lamps great for lighting up darker rooms or areas in your home, but also work great to create certain atmospheres in some rooms. You can install a wall sconce in your laundry room to add a little energy to it, or even place one in your dark hallway to make it seem bright and welcoming. Wall sconces and wall lamps also work great in bedrooms, since they can provide enough light to read at night or watch a movie.
Materials for these can vary widely and may include wood, metal, plaster, ceramics, and more. Choosing a material can be important in terms of both function and décor. If the sconce will hold a burning candle or electrical fixture, a non-flammable material would be the safest choice. In a room with lots of wood, a sconce made of matching or complementary wood may be a beautiful selection. Metal, glass, or ceramic pieces can add nice accents to any room.
