Does your room seem dark and closed in? Brightening up your ceiling and/or walls with a sconce is a great way to make the room feel larger and more pleasing to the eye. In the example pictured, we had tall ceilings that needed a punch of light to eliminate the dark cavernous feel. We used large, 2-lamp, sconces with up light (these sconces are also available with up/down light). Sconces are also great evening lights when you want the main room lights off. They cast a warm glow without glare.
