From bathrooms to living rooms and bedrooms, there are so many options when it comes to decorating with candle wall sconces that it can be difficult to know where to start! Fortunately,
These 10 cool ideas will help you find the perfect place in your home for candle wall sconces and make your home more welcoming and beautiful!
1) Use accent walls to highlight sconces
An accent wall works well with candle sconces because they have a lot of visual impact when they’re lighted they seem like they take up more space than normal walls.
You can use lighter paint colors and patterns on them if you’re trying to create a calming atmosphere in your home’s decor.
If you want something that is going to bring everything together and make it feel like one cohesive whole, then you might also want a single color or pattern throughout that same wall; that way your eye doesn’t get distracted by various things at once.
2) Create separate lighting zones with candle sconces
Whether you want to create a soft lighting effect or something more dramatic, candle wall sconces are a great addition to any space. Adding sconces is a relatively inexpensive way to update your home’s appearance and separate your living room from your kitchen.
In order to maximize your home’s potential with candle wall sconces, there are several different ways that you can place them around your home.
The first step is deciding what kind of effect you would like to achieve in each area of your home.
3) Mount on top of mirrors
Whether you’re looking to brighten up a dark corner or to add some light in your bedroom, candle wall sconces are a simple and elegant way to do so.
For an all-over glow, use multiple sconces placed at different heights on top of mirrors. Also, be sure that candles are nonflammable, and place them away from curtains and other heat sources to avoid fires.
4) Use as part of a chandelier cluster
A sconce is a candleholder that holds one candle. But because candles burn, melt and drip, most people don’t want to put them directly on their walls. That’s where wall sconces come in handy.
These decorative holders not only hold candles securely but also make beautiful accent pieces in their own right. Whether you choose an antique brass or a contemporary crystal, you can add a touch of elegance with your favorite color or pattern. You can even get creative by using several different types of sconces together as part of a chandelier cluster.
Add an artful centerpiece to your room by choosing something bold like an oversized round frame or something more subtle like an understated leaf design.
5) Use as part of an eclectic grouping
If you’re looking to create a variety of lighting options within your home, consider incorporating different styles of wall sconces. Pairing candle wall sconces with decorative styles can add dimension and flair to a room.
Since these fixtures are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors, you can easily find something that matches your existing decor while providing an elegant look.
6) Add some glamour with gold candle sconces
The way you decorate with candles is almost as important as what kind of candles you choose. Add a touch of glamour to your wall space by placing candle sconces on your walls.
It’s easy enough to do and can really add that extra oomph to any room.
7) Accent vintage furniture pieces with candle wall sconces
Candles are great decorating tools they’re affordable, come in many styles and colors, and can instantly create a warm and welcoming environment.
If you want to add more candles to your home without completely changing your decor, try incorporating them into vintage furniture pieces by placing candle wall sconces on top of your chest of drawers or bookshelves.
Candle wall sconces will give your furniture an instant update while also giving off a soft glow that will make any room feel cozy.
8) Add color by using glass candle shades
The first thing you should look for in a candle wall sconce is that it’s made of glass you want to get as much light through your candle holder as possible.
Glass can also help spread light around a room, creating a beautiful ambiance that goes well with most any decor theme. Plus, clear glass looks particularly stunning when candles are lit inside.
9) Scale back but still show off your collection in your bedroom mirror
One of my favorite ways to display my candle collection is on an over-the-mantel mirror. Not only is it a fun way to show off your collection, but it can also help create a more intimate feel in your bedroom by drawing more attention to your bed, chairs and décor (you know all that really matters).
If you don’t have a mantel, try hanging them from your wall sconces or even a curtain rod above your window.
10) Layer glass and metal together on an entryway console table
A metal wall sconce may not have been your first thought for entryway decor, but when you layer it with a glass vase and decorative items in metal frames, you create a truly stunning piece.
The metal sconce provides an elegant frame for your decor without making it too heavy or overshadowing its surroundings. It’s always easier to layer two different pieces of furniture together than try to put them side by side; plus, combining two different materials adds depth and complexity to any room design.
By using two shapes in one place (the round vase next to square frames), your entryway table also has visual interest that keeps you coming back again and again. And with all those layers on hand, what better way is there to welcome guests?
