Why We Love Low Profile Chandeliers
For some rooms, you want the dramatic elegance a chandelier provides yet you don't have the real estate on the ceiling. In any space where the ceiling-to-floor height is less than 8 feet, a low profile chandelier is a great fit. Low profile chandeliers mount flush or semi-flush with the base of the ceiling and do not hang as low as a traditional chandelier. However, you'll find the same beauty and luxury as you would with any other chandelier light fixture.
Where Low Profile Chandeliers Work Best
Low profile lighting has the ability to work well in a number of rooms of the house. From the laundry room to a breakfast nook in the kitchen, this style of lighting has no problem fitting in. Consider a flush mount chandelier in the entryway to immediately impress guests as they walk in the front door. Although mounted close to the ceiling, any of these chandeliers will still deliver the dramatic impact you're searching for. Living rooms are also a great home for a low profile chandelier and you'll enjoy layering your lighting with sconces, floor lamps and table lamps. Finally, add a bit of glamour in the home office with any of these chandeliers. Even as a work space of the home, you'll be sure to appreciate the decoration a chandelier provides.
Flushmount Chandeliers for Every Style
Similar to a traditional hanging chandelier, this assortment of flushmount chandeliers can appeal to a wide variety of decorating styles. From homes inspired by classic Scandinavian design principles to those with a decidedly mid-century aesthetic, there's a chandelier here you'll love. Make a highly decorative statement with a 2-tier chandelier from AxoLight like the illustrious Spillray Chandelier. Hinkley Lighting offers a selection of brushed nickel and silver finished chandeliers to fit contemporary rooms. And look to Crystorama Lighting for a chandelier that is guaranteed to capture your guests' attention. Finally, enhance the energy efficiency of your home by choosing an LED low profile chandelier.
Choosing the Best Low Profile Chandelier
Understanding that you have a limited clearance to work with is the first key to choosing the best chandelier for your space. For a ceiling to floor height that is 8 feet or less, any form of flush mount lighting will be your best option. In choosing your new fixture, be cognizant of sizing dimensions like width, diameter and exactly how far it will hang from the ceiling. While a standard chandelier chain is not present with these fixtures, they can be tall and you'll need to account for their height. Find colors and finishes that are easy to introduce into your space and identify any other key features you can blend in.

Other Great Options
If you find yourself really limited on ceiling real estate, you may want to check out the assortment of recessed lighting. Unlike a flushmount or close-to-ceiling chandelier, can lights mount inside of the ceiling. You receive the same amount of illumination, but your selection of fixtures will be unobtrusive and completely out of the way. And for a similar functional fixture that combines airflow from a fan, look to a hugger ceiling fan. Finally, with any lighting you choose, set the mood of the room by controlling the light output with a dimmer switch.
