How Bathroom Sconces Can Add To Your Bathroom's Design
Finding the right balance between ambient, task and accent lighting is difficult without the use of bathroom wall sconces. While ambient lighting can be easily provided by a bathroom ceiling light, creating task lighting solely with vanity light can sometimes leave your lighting unequal. With only downwards light, shadows are more likely to occur and leave you with deceptive lighting. This is where the wall light comes in.
Bathroom wall lights are great for balancing lighted mirrors. Since they are best used in pairs - aesthetically and in efficacy - wall sconces are often used to provide equal lighting from multiple angles in the bathroom. When installed equal distances apart on each side of the mirror and in combination with vanity light, wall mounted bathroom wall lights allow you to create the perfect cross-lighting to prevent strong shadows from forming underneath your vanity lighting.
Having a rich selection to choose from is essential to finding the right modern bathroom sconce to fit your bathroom's tone and style. Browse between different colors and finishes such as black, brass, and crystal to find the wall sconce that compliments your bathroom.
Where to Install Wall Sconces in Your Bathroom
Choosing the right height for your bathroom sconces can be tricky. It's advisable to aim at eye level when installing. Of course, with multiple people living within the home of different heights, it takes some averaging to figure out where exactly to install. However, placing wall lights too high above head level results in the shadows you are trying to avoid, and placing wall lights too low makes it easy to accidentally catch a full glimpse into the bulb.
Different bathrooms will provide different options for adding wall mounted bathroom lights. With larger bathrooms with multiple mirrors, you may be able to add three or four wall sconces between and alongside the mirrors. But, do not limit yourself on placing wall sconces only the walls beside the mirror. By adding wall lights throughout the bathroom, you can add depth, layering, and symmetry to your bathroom lighting.
