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.
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.
