Why We Love Stainless Steel Wall Sconces
If you want a versatile light fixture with an aura of style and sophistication, stainless steel wall sconces are the perfect light for you. Wall sconces work well in most rooms inside a home as well as outdoors. They can function as ambient and accent lighting, and occasionally task lighting. Stainless steel sconces can be sleek and modern, sophisticated and intricate, classic and traditional, or even rustic and industrial. The neutral finish lends itself well to most interiors and the clean, metallic shine can bring an element of elegance to any decor.
Where Stainless Steel Wall Sconces Work Best
Stainless steel wall sconces will work anywhere inside or outside the home. Use them as creative, contemporary bedside lighting or on either side of your front door to set the tone for the rest of your home. For refined bathroom lighting, place smaller pieces on either side of your vanity. Stainless steel landscape lighting is both functional and beautiful, safely lighting pathways and stairs with their aesthetically pleasing design. Stainless steel outdoor wall sconces bring their polished composure to the outside of any dwelling. Keep in mind, that if you’re using your light in the bathroom or outside, you’ll need to make sure that it’s wet-rated.
Favorite Types of Stainless Steel Wall Lights
With their dramatic, shiny finishes, stainless steel wall lights will always have somewhat of a contemporary vibe, but by adopting classic silhouettes and employing different materials, these lights can fit in rustic and traditional homes as well. For a dramatic, standout fixture that can fit in even the smallest spaces, look for a stainless steel wall sconce draped in bangles and Swarovski crystals. If you want to maintain a minimalist vibe, look for a simple piece filled with understated charm. In a traditional home, a light with a classic lantern or lamp shape and glass shade will work best. Pair any of these options with impressively remarkable stainless steel pendant lighting for cohesive lighting that’s beautifully layered and stylish.
How to Choose the Perfect Stainless Steel Sconce
Choosing the perfect stainless steel sconce all depends on your space. If you have the room, a large sconce, elaborately decorated makes a stunning statement. On the other hand, if you’re looking for small space lighting solutions, you’ll most likely want to opt for a sleeker fixture that draws the eye upward. LED options have a longer lifespan and fewer maintenance needs but the light they cast is cool-toned, so keep that in mind. For ambient lighting, choose a fixture with a shade that diffuses the light. However, if you want accent lighting, we suggest purchasing a shade that offers some sort of directional lighting.
Stainless steel sconces aren’t the only way to bring this exquisite metal into your home decor. Stainless steel ceiling fans, are practical and aesthetically pleasing, with the same polished finish. Alternatively, if stainless steel sconces feel a little too polished for the outdoors, consider browsing our selection of industrial wall sconces.
