A semi-flush light fixture is mounted to a ceiling. While part of the fixture sits flush to the ceiling, usually there is a gap between the ceiling and the light shade. A close-to-ceiling fixture can work well as a central light fixture, ideal in smaller rooms and hallways where there is less head-room. A semi-flush fixture tends to be more decorative than a fully-flush light fixure. These lights are hardwired and must be installed electrically, operated by a wall switch. They produce good ambient light, although a larger room may need more than one.
Our European Style invokes a feeling of gathering with close friends in a French parlor, sipping espresso in an Italian Bistro, or traveling by carriage across the paved brick streets of Vienna. Similar to traditional style lighting, our European Lighting Style is highly ornate, and dedicated to elegant lighting designs embellished with sophisticated curves, iron clad scrolls, and nominal use of crystals or beaded ornaments.
These hanging lights can form a centerpiece in any room, ideally positioned over a table, counter-top, kitchen island or in the middle of a larger room. They produce a lot of ambient light but also center the light below them. Great for dining rooms and living rooms or over a kitchen island. A larger number of light bulbs tends to produce more light and lights up the whole room.
A semi-flush may need a little more ceiling height than a flush mount, but is often useful in a living or family room, bedrooms, a kitchen, a home office or in a basement. They also work well in hallways, bathrooms and smaller rooms.
Being close-to-the-ceiling, these lights will radiate light outward and downward. They can light a large area, but you should also consider wall lights or lamps to fill out the edges or corners of the room, and to provide softer light for more relaxed situations.
Attaches to a flat ceiling. Could potentially be mounted to a sloped/vaulted ceiling. The flush-mount canopy area hides the electrical installation.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the semi-flush fixture into the building's electrical supply.
