Advice from the Premier professionals: At what height are wall sconces installed? Generally, wall sconces should be hung 72 inches from the floor. If the ceiling is very high, sconces can be hung higher for a dramatic effect or at the tops of pillars or beams to highlight the architectural element. If there are people taller than 6 feet in the house, the sconce should be hung high enough so the tallest person cannot look into it.
