My Bathroom Sconces

April 18, 2011

I’m itching to dig into a home improvement project. When thinking about what that project should be, my half bathroom immediately came to mind. It’s hard to prioritize a room I don’t spend a lot of time in, but realistically speaking that little 20 square foot space really needs some attention. I’m in the planning phase but really hoping to get started soon. One of the many things that needs to change in the room is the lighting fixtures. The current pair of sconces are hideous. Below are 6 options that I’ve pulled as possibilities. Please let me now what you think!

Which is your favorite? I’m hoping the room will feel clean and bright, so I really want to get the lighting right. You probably noticed that Sconce A is pretty drastically different from the others; it got added onto the list after I visited a Lowe’s store and it caught my eye. (And note, I do believe the shade is a bit lighter in real life.) Otherwise it’s pretty clear that I’m drawn to nickel and white. I like the idea of having just a touch of drama in this room, which may or may come from the lights. What do you think? And feel free to take the price into consideration when choosing your favorite, since obviously I will be too.

    Yes I voted for A. You should’ve seen that coming. It definitely fits my tastes more than yours, though, I think. If not A, I’d probably say B because I like the little added flair of the swirly-type design.

      Haha, yeah I’m not surprised you chose A. I really do like it, but as my ideas for the room coalesce I am realizing that it will probably not fit in. B is the only other one that has a fabric shade (I think), and I also like the swirly design. It’s a possibility, but I definitely have to see it in person. 🙂

    I voted for D 🙂 At a first glance I though yes: A! because it’s nice and a bit different from what you usually see, but then I read you want the room to feel bright and clean and although A would probably do that too, I like the shape and cleanliness of D, it’s something relaxed and open with that one.

      Mia! I’m so psyched you stopped by. 🙂 I’m glad you voted for D. I hadn’t really been thinking about that one a lot but the way you described it as “relaxed and open” is a very good point. It’s a little more fluid than the others, which is a nice touch. Thanks so much for your thoughts!
