Wall sconces, also known as wall lights, are light fixtures which are connected to your home’s walls and provide indirect lighting. Due to this, wall sconces require an electrical box to be installed in order to properly provide the light fixture with the power it needs to light up the interior or exterior of your home.
Typically they use only one light bulb and are secured to the wall electrical box through a series of screws. An electric wire powers the wall sconce and ensures that the fixture receives the proper power it needs to provide lighting to your home.
Many homes have wiring for only one light fixture, which could cause problems for those looking to install a pair of wall sconces. To provide a clean look for your Austin home, an electrician can provide rewiring and install junction boxes to provide greater flexibility in the type of fixtures you’re looking to use.
