There’s an epidemic out there, and it’s dulling many into indifference. Does your space suffer from Flush Mount Oversaturation (FMO)?
What is flush mount over saturation? That’s a great question. FMO is the unchecked use of dull, ubiquitous ‘boob lights.’
Yeah, not exactly the way one likes to describe a light. In deference to decency, that is merely a borrowed term.
The point is, while very practical, these dull lights are far too common. They create light, but they also look generic, dated, and – dare I say it – cheap. Luckily, Home Concept has the cure for FMO. So, augment your light situation with a low-cost remedy that looks anything but low cost.
Alright, let’s not bury the lede and move on to the good part – installation of a beautifully simple lighting improvement for your ceiling light covers.
Seems obvious, but do this BEFORE making the purchase. Make sure there is a center rod. If there isn’t a center rod, we’ll need you to reach out to us so we can set you up with alternative installation options.
Remember, this rod needs to be in the CENTER of the base.
Usually, there will be a lock nut or some sort of fastener that won’t be necessary anymore. The enclosed instructions that come with will also mention this, but this step is one you may find unnecessary all together.
To be on the safe side, it might be best to remove the bulbs first. This is also a fantastic opportunity to upgrade the bulbs to an LED option. LED lights save ~80% on energy costs over traditional filament bulbs.
Make sure the spider fitter of the shade is against the base of the fixture. Once in place, add one of the lock nuts in the kit to secure the shade.
Next, add the connector piece and move the lock nut to fit snugly against the connector piece.
There are three different threaded rods in the kit. Choose the rod that reaches just short of the bottom of the shade and attach it to the connector piece. Add a lock nut and spin it into position flush against the connector piece.
Use a fourth lock nut from the kit on the top side of the diffuser, and the decorative cap from the kit on the bottom. This is also an opportunity to use a decorative finial to add an extra element of design to your kit.
