Please help..Where should lights be hung?
I'm finally getting wood flooring throughout our second floor bedrooms. They are pulling out baseboard tomorrow, pulling out carpet and doing other preliminary work.
My SIL is coming over tomorrow night - while things are open and before new floors go in - to wire for sconces that I want flanking the bed. The headboard (on order) has a curved shape.
I have not been able to find many pictures showing where a swing arm wall sconce should ideally be placed. Should the plate be centered over the nightstands (which I've yet to order) or be closer to the bedside?
I can wait till the room is painted & furnished before we hang them, and I can adjust for height then. But I have to decide about where along the width of the wall I want them to install the wiring.
The lamp will be traditional style light with a cloth shade - not a modern metal one - if that makes a difference. I'd appreciate any guidance.
