Sconces come in many forms from artistic and ornate to sleek and simple and can hold just one bulb or many. Single-bulb sconces that are spread farther apart will add light around eye level for more even brightness. For the total elimination of shadows pairing two-light fixtures spaced closer together will achieve a salon level of clarity.
Another important aspect of lighting a space for those with diminishing eyesight is visual cuing. Visual cuing provides an additional reference point for judging distance or depth when entering a space or approaching objects. The lighting at the base of these cabinets or toe-kick lighting contrasts well with the dark floor and midtone cabinetry creating a readily visible contrast. But people will just think it's cool.
A perfectly lit room has three basic layers: overhead lighting task lighting and accent lighting. This bedroom pulls all those together — the chandelier for overhead bedside reading lamps as task lighting and accent lights above the headboard and artwork.
