What exactly are semi flush mount ceiling lights? These light fixtures drop a few inches below the ceiling, often suspended from a rod or other suspension system. The gap enables light to reflect off the ceiling – often creating a "halo" effect – while also providing a downward light. The down and up light effect create opposite pools of light on the ceiling and floor. Since these lighting fixtures are meant to be seen, there is room for detail with semi flush lighting - look for options with detail to enhance looks from contemporary and modern, to farmhouse and French country styles.
Semi flush light fixtures work best on ceilings more than 8 feet in height. They combine the sophistication of a chandelier with the versatility of a flush mount. Semi flush lights are a great way to bring character and illumination to a smaller space. A rigid stem usually positions the fixture from the ceiling. If you have decided that a semi flush is the right pick for you, make sure its scale is in balance with the size of your room.
A: Semi flush ceiling lights are extremely versatile! Use them in rooms with lower ceilings to provide ambient light. We especially like semi flush lighting in bathrooms, bedrooms, foyers, entryways and pantries. Consider a semi flush light in work areas, like offices or the kitchen.
