Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions? I often wonder why they fail and how they can succeed. The new year is like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We, at Nancy B’s are starting our chapter and you’re in it. Your lighting needs and lighting questions are so important to us. One of our resolutions is to be a good listener; talk less and listen more to you. Sometimes we ask “what are you looking for in particular” and sometimes you just don’t know. You may even respond “I’ll know it when I see it”. Lighting decisions can be intimidating. We care about you and we’d like to take the intimidation away from you. Simply talk to us about what is important to you and what you desire and need. And when you’re ready, let us swing into action and share our lighting experiences and suggestions with you. Together we can complete our first chapter!
Are wall sconces outdated? Nope, they’re not. Wall sconces, commonly known as wall lights are still very much in style. Maybe the term sounds old but today sconces are offered in every variety, from contemporary to rustic and industrial designs and can either make an impact or fade into the background. A good rule is to hang sconces 66″ off the floor. Make them do what you want. Do you need the light in a corner, by the fire place or in a stairwell? Or do you want a soft glow to give a room a romantic feel? Sconces can provide you with uplight or downlight, others have shades. They can also prove to be a piece of artwork. So many choices, be creative and pick your sconces wisely so you can enjoy them for years to come.
