Flush mount fixtures are installed very close to the ceiling, sitting level with the surface. This enables them to provide better ceiling clearance. Flush mount ceiling lights are strong sources of ambient lighting, whether they are decorative or utilitarian in purpose. Perfect for the hallway, bedroom, foyer, bathroom and even the kitchen, a flush mount is an unobtrusive light source that won't encroach on living space. Often dome shaped, these lights are highly versatile to work in formal or casual settings, especially in rooms with low ceilings (below 8 feet). In fact, in places where the ceiling height is 8 feet or less, there are not many options but to use a flush mount ceiling light or recessed lighting.
