Sconces? How many? and where do they go?
I asked about lighting for the basement bedrooms we are finishing that have 8-foot ceilings. The sizes of the bedrooms are 12x12, 12x13.5, and 15x15. I have found fixtures that I like for the ceiling (no booby fixtures), but we did want a little more lighting for those times when we need it. Someone suggested sconces instead of cans. I've never had sconces, and I have no clue how many we would need and where we would put them. Should I just forget sconces and use table lamps for extra lighting? Any lighting we want needs to be done now bc it will be really expensive to add once the drywall goes up. Also, are sconces trendy? We are not chronic remodelers. Not to say I will keep everything forever, but I don't want to hate it in 5 years either. We save trendy choices for non permanent things like decor that can be switched out easily and go more traditional on the rest.
