Why We Love Dining Room Sconces
Dining room wall sconces are a great addition of complementary light to your existing chandelier, pendant or flush ceiling lighting. Instead of being the primary and focal light fixture in the room, these wall sconces will help provide a source of layered light your bare walls will love. Browse through these sconces to find a pair of wall lights that match your dining room's aesthetic.
Wall sconces improve the amount of illumination in a room and also help to bring its decor full circle. Often functional rather than fashionable in lighting schemes, this assortment of wall lights for the dining room find themselves making a fashion statement that directly lends itself to dining and entertaining parties. While not as dramatic as a pendant or chandelier hanging overhead, just the right modern sconce makes a statement to your decorating preferences and has a welcomed presence among dinner guests. These sconces also fit in just about any style of home, ranging from traditionally decorated dining rooms to those inspired by the middle of the 19th century.
A Dining Room Wall Light for Every Style
Although a robust ceiling light is likely the focus of the room's lighting, wall sconces can create dramatic effects that play off the pendant or chandelier to create a well-rounded appearance. Consider adding a contemporary pair of sconces like the Jonathan Adler Parker Sconce or the SONNEMAN's Teardrop Sconce. In transitional dining rooms, look to the wall lights available from Hinkley Lighting or the collection from Feiss. With a mix of bronze and brushed nickel finishes, you'll find it is easy to introduce a sconce from Hinkley or Feiss into your dining room lighting. Finally, to take an energy-efficient approach with your lighting design, browse the selection of LED wall sconces from Kuzco Lighting.
Choosing the Best Dining Room Wall Sconces
Choosing any style of complementary or accent light requires identifying dim areas of the room that will appreciate the illumination provided by a wall sconce. Consider a wall light fixture's lumen scale and its light bulb type to determine just how bright it will be in your dining room. Wall sconces are also made available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, making it critical to choose the size that is best for your space. Review common sizing dimensions like height, width and depth to pick the most appropriate fixture for the dining room. And finally, with a size, shape and brightness in mind, further refine your choices by finishes, colors, patterns and design features that will best blend in with your home.
