Why We Love Rustic Flushmounts
Give your home an outdoorsy look and feel with a rustic flushmount light. Rustic flush mount lighting gives you an opportunity to bring a lodge aesthetic into your home with a style of fixture that is relatively easy to install. In kitchens, living rooms, hallways and bedrooms, flushmounts align themselves with the base of the ceiling in a stylish yet unobtrusive manner. When paired with other light fixtures in a layered fashion, you'll enjoy a well-rounded amount of illumination.
Where Rustic Flush Mount Lighting Works Best
Typically reserved for spaces with low ceilings, flush mounted lighting is the ideal choice of ceiling light for any of those rooms of the house where the ceiling-to-floor height is less than 8 feet. This could mean in the living room, where a flushmount would supplement existing light from floor and table lamps. Or in the hallway, acting as guiding overhead light with noticeably rustic flair. Bedrooms are good candidates for flush ceiling lights as well, and if you need and extra bit of lighting for the laundry room, you'll enjoy the low profile nature of any of these fixtures. And due to their organic tones, try introducing any of these rustic flushmounts into rooms where wood and natural finishes are prevalent.
Rustic Flushmounts for Every Style
Although notably rustic, just the right surface mount light has the ability to fit into a wide variety of interior styles. Well-crafted wood light shades from the likes of ELK Lighting instantly transform a room from traditional or contemporary into one with rustic edge. Lodge-like lighting fixtures often show off their interior light bulb as well, as with any of Crystorama's flushmounts. If this type of exposed bulb light is right for your space, consider using old-fashioned Edison style light bulbs for your fixtures. You'll love the open, organic vibe they add to different rooms. From square, box-shaped flushmounts by Sea Gull Lighting to traditional round flushmounts by Minka-Lavery, you'll be sure to find just the right light you need in this assortment.
How to Choose the Best Rustic Flush Ceiling Light
Begin your search for a new rustic flush ceiling light by identifying exactly where you plan to install the light. Replacing an old ceiling light with a flushmount is a relatively easy process as a flushmount simply wires into the existing electrical connection. If you are hardwiring a new ceiling light fixture for the first, it's advised to consult with your electrician. You'll also need to decide the shape and size you would prefer for your rooms. Measure for the height of the ceiling to the bottom of the fixture, its diameter (if round) or its width for square and rectangular fixtures. If you have some clearance between the fixture and the base of your ceiling, you may opt for a semi-flushmount that allows for a 3-to-4 inch gap. Review the required light bulb type to be prepared with the right bulb and check its lumen output to determine just how bright the fixture will be.

Continue spreading the rustic theme throughout your home with additional lighting and decor. Make a bold statement with a rustic chandelier in the entryway or position it over the dining room table to make a lasting impression. Chandeliers are a bit more pronounced than a flushmount by delivering the lighting and style statement you need. Consider recessed lighting if you need another form of unobtrusive and low profile lighting. Unlike a flush or semi-flushmount light, recessed lights mount inside of the ceiling in a special type of housing. Finally, once your ceiling lighting is picked out, place it on a dimmer control to adjust the output of the lighting at your leisure.
