A flush mounted light fixture is mounted to a ceiling. The fixture hugs close to the ceiling, usually without any 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 flush-mount fixture provides maximum head-room, though tend to be less decorative than a semi-flush fixture. 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.
Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.
Fixtures closely attached to a ceiling tend to produce more ambient background light. They might be used to support a more central light fixture or as a less elaborate central light. They can produce strong light near to where they are placed. A close-to-ceiling light can flood a room with ambient light.
Being fairly low-profile, flush mounts are often found in smaller or narrower rooms. They work well in a hallway, bathroom or smaller bedroom. They can also work well in a basement or rooms with less headroom.
Being flush-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 flush-mount fixture into the building's electrical supply.
The conversion shade is a very clever solution to an ugly light fixture. My suggestion has to do with the installation. It took a bit of trial and error to discover if I held the original center post with a needle-nosed pliers I was able to tighten the lock nut with an open end wrench. Once I had a system it installed rather quickly. I wish the instructions had offered that as a tip. Regardless, I give it five stars.
The converter kits are great! A little tricky to have them appear level as the ?prongs? Interact with the lightbulbs in a bit of a strange way. Also, the piece of plastic that covers the bottom leaves a gap around the rim so you can see the remnants of the “breast,” ceiling if you stand directly under the fixture. Regardless, much better than the former. Gives a warm, clean, sophisticated look.
Seriously the cutest shades ever. I am honestly going to replace every single "boob light" in my house ASAP. Also, the customer service is off the charts!
Although it arrived a little later than I had hoped, I thoroughly enjoy this lampshade.
I bought these to upgrade the look of our old flush mounts. They are very well made, easy to put up and look great. At first they seem a little pricey, but well worth it. I bought two more. Also, they came promptly and well packaged so no damage in shipment. Thank you!
