Capital wall sconces are available in several innovative designs, as well as classic and traditional ones. The flexibility allows homeowners to utilize them in ways that an ordinary sconce are not typically used. Traditionally, wall lighting fixtures are used for small spaces, dark corners, and home decor accents. Using a sconce for ambient or bright light is not the norm. Some Capital lighting sconces, for example, have as many as eight lights included in the design. Urban, modern, and sleek styles push the boundaries of wall lighting to suit the needs of any room in the home, regardless of size. A blending of styles and twists on rustic elements also add to the flexibility of these sconces.
Small ones can be placed above a bookcase in the entryway to provide soft light in the foyer, or used as vanity lights in the bathroom. Placing a few along the wall in the kitchen can supply bright light for meal preparation when needed by turning them all on. Softer dining light can be accomplished by turning just one of the on during a relaxing meal with family and friends. Sconces can also be used as task lighting when placed next to a favorite reading chair, by a writing desk for paying bills, or above a craft corner.
Large sconces can illuminate a home office, brighten up the upstairs hallway, or provide light for a game or media room without the glare of an overhead light. Placing a dimmer switch on large sconces can help control the light to suit needs, and save on utility bills. Exterior sconces are useful for safety, security, and nighttime entertaining. A frosted or muted design can provide light without attracting mosquitoes. Dark sky designs will allow the beauty of the stars to shine while allowing people to move safely around the deck or patio.
Sconces in many of the collections do not extend more than four inches from the wall to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). That fact adds to the flexibility of these designs. Another fact that increases the flexibility of using these sconces is the affordable pricing. High-quality does not have to cost a small fortune. Being able to purchase a multitude of designs makes mixing and matching easier, and more fun. Do not settle for using wall sconce fixtures in traditional ways. Be creative, explore possibilities, and express personal taste. The results will be stunning and unique.
