Bathe a room in illumination with these low profile ceiling lights.
Why We Love Close-to-Ceiling Lights
Close-to-ceiling lights naturally draw the eye upward and highlight higher up elements in a space, like crown molding or unique architecture. These low profile ceiling fixtures are comprised of perfectly flush mounted lighting and semi-flush mounted fixtures. Flush mount and semi-flush mount ceiling lights provide overall illumination when a larger wash is needed versus focused spotlighting and they are the ideal lighting option when your ceiling to floor height is limited. This selection of close-to-ceiling lighting can become sculptures in and of themselves too, providing a functional and fashionable role in modern spaces.
Where Close-to-Ceiling Lights Work Best
Flush and semi-flush ceiling lighting offer excellent illumination for moving from place to place and doing day-to-day tasks, and this style of ceiling lighting works best anywhere a general wash of light is needed. Bright light keeps the mood happy and active, being especially beneficial when used in living rooms, great rooms or in kitchens where people tend to congregate and socialize. And flush ceiling lights are the best option for areas with low hanging ceilings, including most hallways, bedrooms and breakfast nooks. In cozy entryways and smaller foyer areas, where a large pendant or chandelier is simply too big, a semi-flush light fixture puts your decorative style on display and provides ample lighting for guests entering the home. Finally, consider a close-to-ceiling fixture in the bathroom where it can complement existing lighting from bath bars, wall sconces or natural light sources.
A Close-To-Ceiling Light for Every Style
Although often considered a functional ceiling light, there are multiple close-to-ceiling light styles that can fit a variety of interior design schemes and show off your style. Contemporary low profile ceiling lights include flush mounts and semi-flush mounts from modern lighting designers like Tech Lighting and WAC Lighting. In transitional spaces, you'll love the options from Forecast Lighting or Murray Feiss. For a vibrant fixture that will really stand out, look to the colorful flush mounts from AXO Light and make a luxurious statement with a crystal low profile light.
