Why We Love Wall Sconces with Switches
Lights with on/off switches are more than average wall sconces. Sconces with switches are convenient, above all. They are often paired with pin-up kits, making it easy to uninstall and re-position as the mood suits you, and they sometimes have two different lights involved in the design: a typical sconce for ambient light and an adjustable spotlight for reading. The styles aren't just traditional, either. There are many really cool contemporary wall sconces with switches that match modern decor without negating their functional benefits.
Where Sconces with Switches Work Best
Sconces with switches work best in reading nooks and on each side of the bed to aid in late night reading. The variety of styles accommodate practically any space, whether it's decorated minimally or a bit more funky and contemporary. You'll find the simple addition of a switched wall light adds a much welcomed lighting element in any room. For reading or for providing ambient illumination, these switched sconces pair well with existing lighting in the space and help to round out the look of a room. And since many of these types of lights come in single-shade as well as double-shade designs, they're beneficial in a range of room sizes including bedrooms, living rooms and offices.
A Switched Sconce for Every Style
In addition to the convenience of an on/off switch found in this selection of sconces, they have the ability to appeal to a wide variety of interior decorating styles. From homes with traditional elements of decor to modern offices and living rooms boasting with contemporary accents, a switched sconce finds its way into the existing decor. In mid-century and retro-inspired rooms, consider a sconce from the Jonathan Adler lighting collection. These sconces combine 1950s looks with Jonathan Adler's touch for fixtures you will surely appreciate. Minimalists will adore the sleek sconces from Cerno and look to Artemide for an iconic Italian fixture. Transitional homes benefit from a Global Views fixture and if you enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency, look to any of the LED sconces available.
Choosing the Best Switched Wall Light
The simplistic functionality of on and off switch makes choosing one of these wall lights relatively easy. However, you will want to consider other important design elements like its finish, color and light source. Areas requiring bright, focused light benefit from an LED wall sconce, while low-light areas are suited better with a softer light source. You also need to consider size in your selection. Many of these wall sconces have wide-stretching adjustable arms, requiring a significant amount of space in the living room or on either side of the bed. Look to a fixture's height, width and length to get the best idea of how much room it will require once it is installed.
