The image above is the bathroom sconces we chose for our project. We also added a flush mount fixture and shower light in addition to the modern sconces. This provides the perfect amount of lighting no matter the activity.

If you are putting on makeup, doing your hair, showering, or just using the bathroom there is plenty of lighting for every task.

After researching the many gold wall sconces we chose the Midnight LED Outdoor Wall Sconce by George Kovacs from Lumens.

Black and gold are the accent colors in our white bathroom makeover. They add the perfect contrast to the neutral bathroom design.

The sconce should be no less than 6 inches and no more than a foot and a half away from wall art. Remember to take into consideration the width of the sconce.
