The kitchen is one of the most important parts of the house and having it properly lit is a key factor in creating a perfect atmosphere to cook delicious meals and spend time with family. Wall sconces provide a great source of light in any kitchen. Complementing ceiling mounted fixtures, wall sconces add an extra design element to the room and create plenty of light to complete kitchen tasks.
Generally, you want to leave 60’’ from the floor to the base of the fixture. But be sure to make note of existing furniture and features before you decide where to place your wall sconces so that you allow your lights to have the right amount of space.
If measuring from the counter, you want to be sure to leave a minimum of 24’’ from the counter surface to the base of the light fixture. This eliminates the possibility of injury and keeps the light a safe distance from water.
