WeekendMiniaturist Posted August 7, 2019 Share Posted August 7, 2019 I need some suggestions, as I am tiptoeing into my first custom built by moi, room box and I need to make some decisions about lighting. My Guild Study Program class subject was the fireplace and overmantle... but I really think I need some additional lighting for the room, so considering two sconce on each side of the overmantle, even though the original room box does not have lights. It is probably side lit and hidden in the wall as the rooms are all fully enclosed at the Chicago Art Institute, and hopefully, this room is actually going to live in my Georgian/Federal dollhouse. https://www.artic.edu/artworks/43708/e-8-english-bedroom-of-the-georgian-period-1760-75 I like hardwire, as I think tape wire is very difficult to manage under wallpaper, so I'm planning cutting a saw kerf width for hardwire runs. My million dollar question is how high do I place the sconces on each side of the fireplace, or do I just cut the entire 12" height and make the determination later? I have to find someway to make the wall smooth again, so also considering using a dremel with a portable fence to cut a very small space in the wall for electricity. I think I need a class on fundamentals of lighting a set... are there any recommendations? I will look at Brook Tucker's Christmas roombox book tonite, but she used those large, large light bulbs, and will re-read the threads here on the FMF.
