Where should wall sconces be placed in living room?
Then, where do you put wall sconces?
Sconce lighting is almost always installed in pairs, and they really shine when placed in areas that are naturally dim, such as hallways, entryways, stairwells, and alcove walls. Place sconces on either side of fireplaces, beds, and exterior doors.
Additionally, how far away from the mirror should I place sconces? A good rule of thumb is to hang sconces anywhere from 60” to 70”. Wall mount the sconces on both sides of the mirror. Ideally, they should be 36″ to 40″ apart to ensure even lighting on the face.
Furthermore, should wall sconces face up or down?
Ideally, in order to cast the most flattering light on your face when looking in the mirror, sconces should be mounted at eye level on either side of your mirror. The sconce should also emit ambient light outwards, not directional light up or down.
