Improving your lighting can vastly change the atmosphere. Think about the lighting in an operating room compared to the lighting in a log cabin.

Floor lamps only give so much light, and they take up valuable square footage. When installing ceiling light fixtures isn’t an option, sconces are a great next step. Some are cordless, which require wall fixtures, but others you can plug into a regular wall outlet. (Maybe use a cord conduit, so the wire is less noticeable.) Below, our favorite sconces you can get delivered to your house.

Widest: Aipsun LED Matte Black Modern Wall Sconce


Minimalist And Owns It

See It

This minimalist wall sconce gives a diffused light that isn’t glaring. It works well as bathroom lighting, over a mirror, in a dark hallway, or in an office or living room. It comes in either a natural white light (brighter, like daylight) or a warm white one (cozier, like candle light) and a few length options: 24 inches, 32.6 inches, and 43.3 inches.

Adjustable: Rivet Mid-Century Swiveling Long Arms Wall Sconce with Bulb


Sleek Finish

See It

This sconce is a good option if you want a lamp that will project light further away from the wall than usual. It can also pivot, which makes it a lot more versatile than fixed sconces. This one is particularly fitting as a reading light to place beside your bed (especially if you don’t have space for a night table). It works as either a plugin or a cordless lamp.

Since this one is battery operated, it acts as a cordless lamp without requiring you to open up any walls. It uses three AA batteries, which will last for 50 hours, so it’s best used in transition locations, like an entrance room, hallway, or laundry room. It comes with a remote that lets you choose between 12 different colors and four lighting modes.
