In most homes, flush mount lights illuminate the rooms. Modern flush mount lightings illuminate your space in style, creating the perfect ambiance and effortlessly highlighting the focal features of any room. Also, while there's nothing wrong with standard dome lighting, trading out dull ceiling lights with modern fixtures is a good way to upgrade your home’s overall decor style.
Modern flush mount ceiling light designs give you the flexibility to have stylish overhead lighting without sacrificing any headspace. Just like the name says, a flush-mounted ceiling light mounts flush with the ceiling and typically has a low profile so it doesn't hang down the way a chandelier or pendant would.
These ceiling lighting fixtures can light up a space beautifully without drawing too much attention. You may want a flush mount in a room where you have a beautiful piece of artwork or a statement piece of furniture, as too many eye-catching things can quickly overwhelm a space.
While there are plenty of modern flush mount lights to choose from, they’re also more functional than aesthetic. In many situations with regular height ceilings, your ceiling light options are limited ruling out pendant lights and chandeliers leaving you with recessed lighting and/or flush-mount lights.
Frankly, there’s nothing wrong with these lights as they work well in living rooms, family rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens… pretty much any room of the house.
With so many various types of flush mount lights available, choosing the ideal one can be overwhelming. This guide attempts to shed light on this modern type of lighting by reviewing some of the best flush mount lightings on today’s market.
Tips for choosing a flush mount ceiling light
Flush mount lighting can theoretically work in any room of the house. However, in prominent places such as living and dining rooms, you’ll often find more intricate chandeliers or perhaps recessed lights. Bedrooms usually have lighting fixtures combined with a ceiling fan. That leaves the hallway as the most likely spot to find a flush mount ceiling light.
It’s easy to see how hallway light fixtures can become overlooked and ignored. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun choosing the right fixture that reflects your personality.
Here are a few tips to help you begin to narrow down your options:
- Flush-mount lighting comes in many unique designs, from utilitarian to eye-catching. Opt for a sputnik flush mount for a more modern look. An iconic mid-century silhouette, it features clean lines and bold shapes. Also, if your look is more traditional and elegant, a crystal flush mount is a timeless choice. The cut facets of the crystals create a stunning prism effect, reflecting light for extra glamour. An elegant flush mount has a similar appeal to a chandelier or pendant, extending slightly into your space.
- Hang your fixture in the center of the room. This means it should be central to the width of the hallway as well as the length. If there are multiple fixtures in the room, be sure that the distance between the wall and each fixture is the same – and that they are spaced evenly from each other.
- Make sure the bottom of your entryway light is at least seven feet off the ground. You never know when you might have a tall friend come over!
- Try to match the finish (as in the metal part of the fixture, or in some cases, wood) to other light fixtures in your home. Matching finishes from room to room will also create a sense of continuity in your home.
- Don’t forget to consider lightbulbs. With enclosed spaces such as hallways, you can easily get away with diffused softer lighting, whereas a vast space requires more brightness.
