Choosing the perfect lighting fixture for any room can be difficult. Choosing between a chandelier or wall sconces can also be tricky. A few considerations that can help you make the correct choice are as follows.
1. Lighting with Purpose:
All lighting has at least one action, to light up a darkened space. Sometimes; however, the purpose for the lighting unit may be more than just to light up the darkness. When it comes time to choose between a chandelier or wall sconces, think about all of the functions that the lighting unit will perform.
2: Energy Usage:
The usage of energy by the fixture can also be an important consideration. Over the lifetime of use, a fixture that has a high operating cost can cost a small fortune. When you think about energy cost, don’t be afraid to choose a fixture that seems out of your budget. Instead, consider the long term cost and see which fixture costs more over time.
3. Lighting as Decor:
Certain rooms need certain types of lighting fixtures. Small, low-ceilinged rooms, obviously cannot support a Chandelier. Narrow hallways may make wall sconces that stick out an unpractical choice. How the room is used, is also a consideration. Wall scones are good as accent pieces to add to a theme or decor. You can also use wall sconces to draw attention or place an emphasis on a certain part of a room. A chandelier, on the other hand, can be a center piece. Chandeliers often provide a lot more light than wall scones provide. A good feature of any chandelier is a dimming switch that allows for you to control the amount of light that is produced.
Think about how the light fixture will be used, how much it really costs in the long term, and how it will fit into the decor of your home. In so doing, you will be able to choose between a chandelier or wall sconces.
