10 Contemporary Sconces for the Bathroom

by ·

Designed by Sutro Architects

There are certainly lots of ways to light up a bathroom, and if you ask me, I’d say that a combination of them is most often the best and most complete way to do so. This depends on your lighting needs. If you need a decent reflection of yourself in the mirror, then a source of light coming right over your head won’t be helpful. On the contrary, the light should come from your front and/or sides from approximately the same height as your face. A wall sconce, for that matter, is a great solution, ideally placed on both sides of the mirror. They add to the ceiling lighting you may already have and create an ambience that eliminates ugly shadows and poorly lit corners.

There is such a great collection of impressive sconces out there that I am convinced I would skip their practical nature and use them for decorative purposes alone.

Here are 10 of my recent favorites:

01: hollywood small sconce // 02: Demi Drum Sconce, Antique Brass // 03: Sabor Wall Sconce // 04: Santa & Cole Wally // 05: Rio Wall Sconce // 06: Restoration Warehouse Hinsdale Wall Sconce- Aged Brass // 07:  Stone Wall Sconce // 08: Covet Short Clip Bath Sconce // 09: Cobra Wall Lamp // 10: Milano Wall Sconce

What do you think? Do you have or plan to install sconces in your bathroom? Comment below with your favorites from the list!
