Wall sconces are stylish and elegant way to liven up a boring or vacant bedroom wall space. Wall sconces are a popular type of accent lighting for a bedroom, with one frequently mounted on each side of the bed so one person can simply reach up and turn on the light. When choosing bedroom wall sconces, it is helpful to consider the rest of the decor in the room, and whether it is more traditional or more modern. Traditional wall sconces might have brass or copper bases and hardware, for example, with traditional fluted glass shades for the light bulbs. Wrought iron styles are also pretty popular, and can be a bit more ornate. More modern sconces might be made of materials such as silver or even simple glass, and may be in more geometric shapes such as squares or rectangles. There are many different options to be found in stores or online, so it is helpful to browse around to get a general idea of the different looks available.
Another option is to purchase antique bedroom sconces, which can give the room a nice look if it matches the rest of the decor. If doing this, however, be sure the wall sconces are wired properly and still function perfectly so they do not present a fire hazard. Purchasing bedroom sconces with colored glass shades is another option, which can look nice in more colorful rooms, or even in kids’ rooms to make it look more festive.
