Flush or Semi-Flush Mount Lighting

 Flush or Semi-Flush Mount Lighting

When it comes to ceiling lights, the flush or semi-flush mount fixtures are the most commonly used in most homes. Such fixtures are very versatile, require little space and are available in numerous finishes, styles, and colors. They are also referred to as “close-to-ceiling” lights and are the lighting fixtures of choice for small rooms, closets, and hallways. They are also perfect for those locations where a table will always be underneath the fixtures or in corners of rooms.

Flush mounts are attached directly to the ceiling. They leave no space between the light and the fixture. Semi-flush mounts, on the other hand, hang from the ceiling leaving a small gap between the fixture and the light.

When to use Flush or Semi-Flush Ceiling Lights

Flush lights are best suited for rooms that are small to medium in size where space is limited. When the ceiling height is of 8 feet or less and people either have to walk underneath the light then flush mounts are the fixtures of choice.  They are also very effective in providing ambient light or general illumination and can lighten up a whole room. Flush or semi-flush lights are great for bathrooms, entryways, closets, hallways, bedrooms and other small rooms with low ceilings.
