Today I’ll show you how to add sconces to your home without any outlets close by! I’ve gotten a few questions about this and honestly, I had some questions myself!
I didn’t know exactly how to make it work but I got there! And now I have some answers from my own experience.
I’ve been wanting to update the sconces by my nightstands for a while now and am finally getting around to it. He’s the kicker…They aren’t hardwired… and there isn’t any outlet close by to plug them into!
I’ve seen ideas where people have found cord wall covers, but I could do that either! So, what was I to do if I wanted to update my nightstand sconces?
Here’s what I found: A magical invention that I bought right off of amazon!
Its battery-operated light bulbs! And get this… They are rechargeable!
They are the perfect solution for all of the questions I had, and who knew it would be a solution with prime shipping?
Once I got the light bulbs, I found the sconces that worked my space and put them together! The bulbs just screw right into my sconces and I simply turn them on when I want some ambiance.
And there you have it! It’s the perfect solution if you have to wait for an electrician to come and hardwire or there isn’t an outlet close by to plug the sconce in.
How do you use sconces without electricity?
These battery-powered light bulbs don’t need to be plugged into anything! They also are very low maintenance because they are rechargeable.
Do sconces need wiring?
Not anymore! If wiring is available to you, you can for sure find sconces that work with your wiring, but new technology has found a workaround with battery operated bulbs!
How do you make a wireless sconce?
It is so easy to have a wireless sconce, I’m not sure I can really say I “made” it. I found the battery-powered bulbs on amazon, and then found the sconces that work right in my home, and brought them together!
How can I add lights without wires?
This solution works for you even if you have access to wires or you have an outlet nearby the sconces. Battery-powered light bulbs take away any trouble you would have with wires, hiding cords, or anything else that might hold you back from your sconce dreams!
You can also use battery powered puck lights as well. At Home With Ashley suggestions the same!
How can I power my outdoor lights without an outlet?
Wanting outdoor sconces without an electricity source may seem like a bigger problem, but guess what! There are also solar-powered light bulbs you can use too.
These are super hassle-free because you don’t have to worry about turning them off and on, or if they are going to run out of battery. They also are perfect for saving energy!
Can I install a light fixture without a junction box?
If you do not have a junction box nearby, or if you choose not to use it, you can’t technically call it a light fixture. Some light fixtures have their own junction boxes like recessed lighting cans, fluorescent fixtures, and some types of track lighting, but if that is not available you can still have a light source where you wish!
This would just require a battery powered light bulb that is safe and super easy to use!
I hope this answered some of your questions!
