In order to choose the best alabaster sconces, you need to consider the size of the sconces, the shape and style of the sconces, and of course the price as it relates to your intended budget. Wall sconces can be used in many different areas and therefore come in several sizes. Additionally, the options of style and shape are quite numerous and can be matched to suit your individual style. As with most purchases, the price of alabaster sconces can vary greatly and will certainly be a part of your decision.

Alabaster sconces are most often measured by diameter. Some of the most common diameter sizes are 10 inches (25.4 cm), 12 inches (30.48 cm) and 16 inches (40.64 cm). To decide which size will be right for you, consider the area where you intend to install your sconces. Make sure to look at the diameter of the sconces in relation to the length of the wall area they will be on. You can also measure any other fixtures or wall art that will be in the vicinity of the sconces in order to determine how big or small they will appear in comparison.

After size is determined, there are endless style and shape options to consider when choosing your alabaster sconces. Some of the most common styles are cylinder or quarter sphere shapes. Some other available shapes include triangles, squares and even modern curves and waves. Some sconces are composed of a series of two or three smaller lamps joined together on a metal fixture. These shapes are also available in any number of styles that might include metal backings or embellishments to change the overall look of the sconce.

When sorting through the numerous style options for your alabaster sconces, remember to think about the overall style of the room. You might want to consider whether you want your sconces to stand out and grab people's attention or simply fade into the general ambiance of the room. Alabaster sconces are available in pure white or various levels of tinting which can add warmth and depth to the look as well.

Finally, consider your budget and the price range you are comfortable with when you choose your alabaster sconces. Prices can range from very affordable to rather expensive, and the right price for you will be solely based on your own preferences and budget. A little comparison shopping can go a long way in getting the best price on your sconces. Alabaster sconces are often used in commercial settings and can be found on many retail websites as well as in stores, and a little extra time spent searching can mean finding the best deal possible on the sconces you really want.
