Easy-to-install wall sconces that will revamp any space in your home

Ceiling fixture? Pass.

Rivet mid-century sconce with a long, swiveling arm.
Lighting options for any room.Amazon

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.
