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.
Our Crystal or ‘Glam’ Lighting Style is full of bling, and includes the most head-turning clear glass designs to express your inner diva. Lavished in crystal ornamentation or rich in precious metallic and chrome overlays, each dazzling lighting design speaks opulence and splendor. And like a true-to-life Cinderella story, our Crystal-Glam Lighting can turn your home into the palace it was meant to be.
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.
This is the second one I bought. We am in the process of doing a home renovation and I like the idea of having almost identical light fixtures throughout the house. That way, the design feel of the home isn't choppy. I love the vintage feel with this fixture. The light fixture is beautiful. It was received before the estimated arrival date and in excellent condition. My husband installed the light in less than 30 minutes and it is tremendous. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. We are considering buying the chandelier from the same Cristal de Lisbon collection for the dining room.
