Cabinet lighting highlights the glass storage and tile backsplash illuminating the back wall of the bar. Sconce lighting creates a low light atmosphere perfect for the lounge vibe. Bar seating opens up to a pair of leather gray armchairs expanding the room and allowing for choices in seating.
This contemporary white master bathroom features white and neutral marble tile floors with mosaic accent, white vanity with modern bowl sinks, white and gold sconces for lighting, and gold faucets and accents.
This stylish bathroom vanity features his and hers sinks in the sleek neutral countertop. Dark wood cabinets below contribute a rich contrast to the lighter colors in the design. A triple bulb sconce is centered above the vanity shining light onto the reflective polish of the stainless steel faucets and large mirror.
To create a cozy yet sophisticated look, don’t just rely on overhead fixtures. Layer lighting throughout the room via table lamps, sconces, and floor lamps. Put a few on dimmers to change up the mood of the room.
Take another look at that midcentury sconce, and you might just notice a hand holding the light like a torch! With pieces like this hidden throughout the house, the owners and their guests will always have something new to admire.
To add ample light to their sleeping area, Briana and Buzz opted for wall-mounted, plug-in sconces that don't require permanent hard wiring. By simply screwing the attachment to the wall, then plugging the cord into a nearby outlet, the look of custom, permanent lighting is achieved without long-term commitment or the steep cost of hiring an electrician. Another advantage of wall-mounted sconces is that table space is freed up, allowing surfaces to be used for other purposes.
Replacing an existing window that was smaller, a new insulated double hung window with white trim over the bench with relaxed roman shades brings lots of natural light into the entry. Two adjustable industrial-style wall sconces with a polished nickel finish help illuminate the space.
Lighting is a crucial design element in bathrooms, especially those packed with black surfaces, which absorb light. For effective, flattering light, consider having diffused-glass sconces installed, centered on each side of the vanity mirror. When lit, the filtered white light evenly illuminates the face without any harsh shadows. Furthermore, by adding dimmers to the sconces, the entire bathroom can take on an ambient, spa-like feeling at night.
