Semi Flush Ceiling Lights & Flush Mount Ceiling Light
If you're looking for ceiling lighting that hangs close to the ceiling or doesn't hang at all, then you're in the right place! Semi flush and flush lights are both ceiling light fixtures that are mounted to the ceiling, but don't necessarily hang like a pendant or chandelier does. And unlike recessed ceiling lighting, flush and semi flush lighting fixtures are not placed into the ceiling, but rather, are positioned "flush" or close to flush to the ceiling's surface.
While chandeliers and pendants tend to elicit a "wow" factor, flush and semi flush ceiling lights have a lot to offer in the lighting department, including unique styles that draw attention all on their own.
Flush vs. Semi Flush Lighting
Semi flush ceiling lights are crafted to hang four to eight inches down from the ceiling; the space between the top of the light and the ceiling results in a lovely up-lighting effect throughout the room. On the other hand, flush mount lighting is designed to mount snug to the ceiling, which allows for greater clearance and works well for hallways, entryways and kitchens. Classic flush mount lighting can also be strategically placed to cover any ceiling imperfections and can provide direct task lighting in an unobtrusive manner.
Semi Flush Mount Lighting
Semi flush mount ceiling lights serve as an excellent source of ambient light. As always, when choosing the best lighting for your home, you'll greatly benefit from considering the key design element of light bulbs. While often an afterthought, shopping for bulbs is just as important as deciding the type of fixture you need. Bulbs come in a myriad of types including globe, candelabra, flame tip, holiday, traditional, colored, LED and many other varieties; which one you choose will make a significant impact on the overall perception of your light fixture.
Flush Mount Lighting
While Bellacor offers a curated selection of flush ceiling lighting, you can find a fixture that matches your style, budget and room design. Flush lighting is ideal for highlighting the most-used areas within a room and will create necessary overhead lighting to serve either as task lighting or ambient lighting. Two prime candidates for this type of lighting are a long hallway or your entryway. Ceiling bedroom light fixtures are also perfect for directing light over a guest room sitting area, desk or reading nook. While a grandiose chandelier is indeed stunning, it may be too large to fit in a smaller entryway or in an area with a lower ceiling. Thanks to flush lighting, you can fill tighter spaces with much needed lighting and beauty.
Light Bulbs for Flush and Semi Flush Lighting
The number, size, type and wattage of required bulbs for your light fixture should be a consideration and will be detailed on each product's specs. A light fixture that requires one, standard low wattage bulb, will be more energy efficient and economical than a semi flush chandelier that requires several, higher wattage candelabra bulbs for adequate illumination. A balance between lighting style and energy savings is recommended in all cases.
Brimming with everything from bold, mid-century style to traditional and highly functional options, our lighting selection will add a custom sparkle to your entryway, or any room in your home. With distinctively luxe flush lighting fixtures to choose from, our bold aesthetics and brave design choices will tell a story about your aesthetic vision.
