Types of Wall Sconces

When choosing a wall sconce, it's important to know where the light needs to be cast. Different wall sconces will illuminate different parts of a room. Below are some of the most common types of wall sconces.

Downlight Sconces

Downlight sconces are designed to direct light down towards the floor. This creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Since they don't produce a lot of light, downlight sconces are best suited for intimate indoor settings or outdoor use.

Uplight Sconces

If you need to illuminate a large area or want bright light in your space, an uplight sconce is a good option. This type of sconce directs light toward the ceiling, allowing it to reflect off multiple surfaces. Uplight sconces are a good option for small rooms or spaces that don't get a lot of natural light.

Up and Down Sconces

Up and down sconces direct equal amounts of light in both directions. This makes these types of wall sconces suitable for almost any environment. They are a popular choice for bathrooms, hallways, and outdoor areas.

Swing Arm Sconces

Swing arm sconces are attached to a wall, but can be adjusted as needed. This gives you control over where the light shines. These types of wall sconces are great for smaller homes or anywhere that needs concentrated light for a short period of time.
