Wall sconces function as a type of wall lighting fixture that typically installs in areas like hallways or around focal points of a room, like a bed or mirror. They typically direct light upward, though some offer a downward facing light. Wall sconce fixtures can provide accent light, brighten dark corners to help the room feel larger, or help balance the light around a chandelier.
Wall sconces see use in rooms like hallways, living rooms, and bedrooms. You can also use them in bathrooms. Where vanity lights typically feature a single, more linear design, you can use multiple wall sconce fixtures on either side of a mirror for additional light.
Wall sconces range in style from simple, traditional designs to modern and artistic.

Lumens (lm) measure the amount of brightness from a bulb or fixture. More lumens mean a brighter light. While we used to buy light bulbs based on wattage, wattage does not indicate brightness. Instead, wattage measures the amount of power consumed. That’s why you can find many low wattage LED lights that still offer the same amount of light as higher wattage incandescent fixtures. They just use less energy!
Correlated color temperature (CCT) measures the appearance of the white light emitted by the bulb or fixture in degrees of Kelvins (K). This scale ranges from 1000K-10000K with most commercial and residential lighting falling between 2000K-6000K. They can provide temperatures from warm white, which features a yellow glow, to cool, daylight white, which features a bluer hue.
You can also find options that allow you to select a color temperature, known as Selectable CCT fixtures. These fixtures typically offer a few color temperature options that you can choose from instead of guessing the right temperature for your space. AFX Lighting offers options like the 17W LED Century Wall Sconce or the 17W Aberdeen sconce that offer a selectable CCT.
