4 Wall Sconce Applications In A Kitchen

When we plan lighting for a space, wall sconces can be the final touch to add form and function. The wall scones featuring mid-century modern, inviting Scandi, warm minimalist, timeless classical, relaxing coastal chic, modern farm house or anything in between can help you express your true style in a magical way. When placed in just the right spot, these wall sconces will not only light well for your tasks but also can add a sense of elegance and sophistication to a space.

One of the kitchen trends we have seen in the recent years is the removal of wall cabinets. The opening wall spaces and wall shelves no doubtfully offer a great opportunity for the increasing applications of wall scones in a kitchen. The use of wall sconces not only makes any kitchen space more functional but also add personality and give it a custom look. Today, we are going to present 3 ways to place wall scones in a kitchen.

Above Windows

If you have windows above your sink, there are probably at least 24 inches between the top of the windows and the ceiling. Filling this space with wall sconces not only deliver good task lighting, but also a great design decision as well.

Above Open Shelf

Since open shelving is typically installed after your electrical, it’s important to decide how many shelves you will have. This will allow you to determine how high to place the wall sconce.
