Nice style. One was defective!

These are Sconces are a great value and have a nice style . But unfortunately one was defective. Great thing was that YL sent me a new one right away. Now that's
a company I can help evangelize. I will getting my dinning room lighting at YL as well.

Clean lines, great value.

We installed this light in a small guest bath and the it did a brilliant job illuminating the entire room. The simple design is great for any bathroom requiring neutral lighting options.

not sure it's best for the bathroom

We loved the simple and elegant design of these lights so we bought 2. One for our vanity area and one in our bathroom next to the shower. The one in the bathroom has started rusting from the moisture. We've only had it for about 2 years. Surely it has to last longer than that. Now I'm having to look for a replacement. :(

A nice light with a modern look that fits nicely in our home decor.

I thought these were very nice lights. Were delivered well packaged in a timely manner. Looked exactly as pictured on the internet so there were no surprises when we received the lights. Great Light!

Looks great and easy to install. Perfect if you are looking for a lighting update on a budget (relatively speaking). Ylighting has fast shipping and everything was well packaged and intact when it arrived. Great product!

Simple Modern Solution

We wanted to update the lighting in our guest bath without spending an arm and a leg on something we wouldn't take with us when we moved. This piece fit the bill. Casts good light and the shape was perfect for the low ceilings in our room. Easy installation, but I'm not crazy about buying special sized bulbs (T10) for this fixture. All in all a good purchase.

I have always liked George Kovacs products. The wall sconce works great in bathrooms to provide nice accent light at mirrors.

could have been the best...

seems very poor design that you can only set it horizontally, I wanted to buy about 8-12 of these, but now I am not since it can only be put one way. sorry. I don't need the headache to try to get my elecrician to modify the outlet or base to manipulate it... too bad. sorry.

Exactly the modern look I was looking for in my half bath.

Easy to install. Keep in mind that you must buy a bulb and that the light produced by the recommended bulb has a bit of a yellowish tint to it.

Great looking light for powder room

We need a light with a switch on it, so the picking were slim, especially in the big box stores. Y Lighting had a great selection of contemporary, stylish lights and this one fit the bill. My husband installed it with no problem. Looks great and casts a nice glow.

Beautiful fixture

We positioned light horizontally over the mirror in two of our smaller bathrooms. It is a beautiful fixture and was easy to install. The two-light sconce is not very bright, so is best suited for half baths or bathrooms with other light sources.

By:Susan C , Homeowner (Arlington, VA, US)

Not too happy

Liked the clean design. But have become increasingly bothered by the fact that the T10 bulbs light only half of each tube as they extend only half way giving the appearance that half of each tube is very dirty. Really can't take it any more, looking for a replacement.

Simple & functional

We used these in a bathroom renovation that focused on simple lines and two colors: white & light orange. They give great light while not taking up any literal or aesthetic space. Sometimes less is more, and this is one of those times.

By:Debbie M , Homeowner (Palm Springs, CA)

Great looking light but may not fit small bathrooms

Ordered the fluorescent version and it offers a clean contemporary look. Buyers with small bathrooms should be careful because the light requires almost two feet sideway clearance to change a blown bulb.

By:Kwan , Homeowner (Mclean, VA)

Looks good and satisfies energy efficiency requirements

Looked as it did on-line. Relatively easy to install. Frosted glass gives nice glow with good, bright light. Would purchase again. Y-Lighting experience very positive and helpful when called for follow-up on order status etc.

Great mid-century modern light!

We were looking for something with simple lines and well constructed for over our guest bathroom vanity...this is it! We are going to use a single light over the mirror. We 'tested' the light, and will be able to use two more in the master bathroom on the vertical axis. To cool.

Well constructed, good price, clean modern look

We like these sconces for our new, small bathroom. Two American Standard vessel sinks and faucets, two Kohler small recessed mirrored cabinets and two of these sconces each with 2 60 wt. candelabra bulbs. My wife says that she has plenty of light for makeup. I put them on a dimmer.

Great fixture for the price

Had looked all over for a simple bathroom vanity light that took incandescent rather than fluorescent bulbs (under $200) and found this George Kovacs sconce. It was shipped quickly (when I sent an email to CS they responded immediately), packed well and was easy to install. The fixture has a nice finish and the shades look lovely with incandescent bulbs. Takes two T10 60W bulbs which can be difficult to find (not stocked at my local Home Depot or Lowes) so definitely order some when ordering the sconce so that you can light it up once installed.

All in all a great purchase and I would not hesitate recommending this to anyone who wants a simple, modern type of sconce. A great find for the price.

great looking, well made fixture for the price.

great contemporary lines. energy efficient flourescent lamps provide good color rendering, but beware that the overall light output is not tremendous. Your bathroom should have supplemental overhead lights as well.

Any lamp casing that involves a glass screw is very delicate.

Beautiful - perfect over mirror

We used this light in two bathrooms; both above the wall mirror behind the vanity/sink. The light is even, and the fixture is clean & crisp looking. We find the light to be enough for us but it may not provide enough light if it is the only fixture in a room. The light uses either t-10 bulbs or candle bulbs (up to 60W each) if you purchase the incandescent version. A standard incandescent bulb is too wide to fit within the glass diffusers. We don't care for fluorescents in the bathroom - the light cast by them is disturbing. The light was easy to install on a standard box, and all the necessary hardware was included. We combined this light with the Robert Abbey Nina Corta mounted on the ceiling and they look terrific together.

Measure twice, order once?

Love the light, but space was too small for this fixture. Finishing up our new house and realized after everything was in that the light is 1" too wide for our tiny gust bath. Too bad, I like the design.

Great Bathroom Lights

We've ordered 2 sets of these sconces and they are beautiful and simple at the same time. Based on the wattage you use, they actually provide a huge amount of light.
If you like straightforward design, simple but elegant, this is great buy.

What you would expect for a hundred bucks

I ordered these for a bathroom remodel. Upon receiving them I returned them. Don't get me wrong they are a nice looking fixture, but the fit and finish was that of a hundred dollar fixture. My mistake.

Excellent Value!

For the price I found this light to be perfect. Looks more expensive, light output is great for my bathroom (about 14x5), and the quality is great. We bought the fluorescent version. Highly recommended.

By:Tony R. , Homeowner (Scottsdale,AZ)

Looks good

The fixture is very nice looking. However, it uses special tubular bulbs for which there is no CFL equivalent. Further the bulbs are around 5" long. In order to install the bulbs easily there needs to be about 6" on either side of the diffusers or the fixture needs to be installed in a 36" wide space. This limits the applications in which the fixture can be installed.

By:Rob , Designer (Cambridge MA)

Return customer

I bought lighting and a fan from Y Lighting in the past and once again, the sconces are beautiful. Although Y Lighting products are typically beyond my budget, these same sconces were more expensive at a local store and even other sites. They are still in the box awaiting installation in the master bath once work begins on the renovation.

Does not light across entire shade, very disappointed

I thought that by using a long incandescent bulb - at $6 each- there would be light across the whole tube. Not so. The ends look grey. Very disappointed in these over the bathroom mirror.

Bulbs last a short time.

Bought this lamp back in 2009 and think it is just beautiful.

The problem we have is that the 60 w bulbs recommended burn out very quickly. Undoubtably, this is because the high heat generated by the incandescent bulbs.

I am now trying a fluorescent bulb that is a different shape and must be installed with a paper tube holding it.

Minimal heat generated and looks great.

adjustable bracket for light box makes it easier, and check the lumens for brightness!

Several folks warn that you can't mount this level if your jbox is askew. Not true. You can get an adjustable bracket that you attach to your jbox that allows you to swivel the light to be perfectly level. These should be available at any decent hardware store. It's no reason to avoid this light! I haven't bought it yet but I'm about to do my bathroom remodel and it's on my list.

I would recommend that you compare the LUMENS and COLOR of the light produced by the different kinds of bulbs before making your choice. Bear in mind that incandescent bulbs produce warm yellow light, that can seem dim and almost dingy now that we are getting more used to CFLs and LEDs. Incandescents are also inefficient; they use more energy and produce fewer LUMENS--i.e. they aren't as bright, as fluorescents or LEDs. They also burn a lot hotter because a lot of the energy goes to heat instead of light. Sixty-watt incandescent bulbs produce 480 lumens of light.

For the brightest light your best choice would be the fluorescents, (the 13-watt fluorescents that come with this light produce 775 lumens each) but you should call and ask what the COLOR rating of the bulbs is. This can make a big difference in what the light looks like and how it makes you look in the mirror. The LEDs fall between these, at 621 lumens. Again, call to ask what COLOR the LED light is. Light color is given in Kelvins--2700 is very yellow and 6000 is very bright and bluish. Best range for a natural look is on the lower end--I like around 3000-3500 but I prefer a brighter light. Some folks like 2700 because it looks like incandescent, but the lumens don't LOOK as bright when they are that yellow.

I really appreciate this website because it is organized so you can see all the choices of bulb style on one page. I hope they will add the color info to the bulb descriptions and maybe a section on what the different K values mean. But this pre-review might help some folks who are confused and bewildered by the three choices of bulb types make the proper decision.

Modern value

This is a great value. We needed fixtures for our renovation that were economical but didn't sacrifice on our modern aesthetic. We purchased these as well as the Saber 1 light sconces and were not disappointed. They are easy to install and look great. We did have a bit of a hard time finding the bulbs locally and ended up ordering them online, so my advice - for those that love instant gratification - look into the bulbs ahead of time.

By:DesignerMom , Homeowner (Chicago, IL)

Nice product but very poor customer service!

Really liked the product, but came with 2 stickers on the very front middle stainless part that very very hard to remove. You know the kind that leave a thick residue impossible to get off! Never understand why manufacturers do this especially with all the options for stickers these days. There are stickers that come right off - why don't they use them? Had to get a special removing solution to get them off. Called Ylighting to talk to them about this so maybe they could change it for the next guy. Left several messages - 1 week later have still not received a call back! I don't do business with businesses like this! Will not be shopping at Ylighting again!

Customer Questions:

Q: Does the Kovacs Two Light Bath Sconce require a certain about of clearance for relamping?

A: Yes, the P5042 requires at least 7 inches on both sides. The fixture uses a T10 lamp and there must be enough room to pull the glass over that.
