Buying Guide

When it comes to the best materials for wall sconce covers, there is no straightforward answer. Sconce covers are available in various types of materials, from metal and porcelain to covers made from fabric and natural seashell pieces. Depending on the interior decor theme of your space, the amount of light you want dispersed, your budget, and of course, your personal preference, there are a limitless amount of options out there for wall sconce covers.

If you have a formal setting, porcelain covers will go well with the overall theme. Alternatively, if your home features a more industrial interior, metal wall sconces would go well with it, and sconces made from seashell pieces are the ideal interior decor accessory to complete a boho themed setting. 

When it comes to choosing an appropriate wall sconce cover color, a few factors will play a role in your decision, and a few colors could work for your interior decor color palette. White shades are recommended if you want to make your space feel brighter and airier. It's also great if you don't get a lot of natural light coming into the room.  

For added texture, beige and oatmeal sconce covers work wonders to create contrast, and for a media or study room where you want to create ambiance, a dark or black sconce cover with gold is ideal.
