If you're looking for a creative new way to light the rooms in your home, you might want to consider a wall sconce. Wall sconces come in a wide variety of designs, shapes and colors. You can even find candle sconces that are safe for use in any room in your home. Installing a candle sconce is as easy as hanging a picture frame. Lighted sconces are also quite easy to install with the proper training and instruction.

One of my favorite uses for wall scones is for bedroom use. Many people place wall sconces above the headboard of their beds for nighttime reading. Some home improvement experts even recommend installing wall sconces directly onto your headboard. This is a good option if you have a high, wooden headboard. Some people even build their own headboards by covering plywood with padding and beautiful fabrics.

The Light Fantastic

These days, many people are designing their homes with a "shabby chic" look. I recently bought a white wall sconce with a small shelf for a candle. I placed the scone in my bathroom, and I find it's now one of my favorite rooms. I love dimming the lights, filling the bath, and taking a soothing soak in the candlelight.

Wall sconces add romance to just about any room in the home. Some people even insert colorful light bulbs into their wall sconces for added drama. Nothing is more romantic than dining by candlelight. You can do just that when you install a candle wall sconce in your dining area.
