// SETTING THE HEIGHT FOR A READING LIGHT
To determine the mounting height, measure from the floor to the bottom of the shade — the sconce should be eye level when you are sitting on the bed.
// INSTALLING A BATHROOM LIGHT
In bathrooms, wall sconces are ideal for mirror lighting. White or off-white glass is best because the diffused light will permeate the entire space and the color of the light will be good for using the mirror.
If you are using small sconces measure from the top of the mirror to one-quarter of the way down to establish your center mounting height.
