Semi Flush Ceiling Fittings
Semi flush ceiling lights play an important role when trying to find something suitable for rooms with a lower ceiling and could be the perfect solution if you are struggling to find suitable lighting for your ceiling that won’t cause you a headache! Newer modern homes tend to have ceilings that are around 2.2m whereas older properties have ceilings of 3m and higher. This can make it difficult to have a pendant or drop fitting in a newer style property due to the height limitation. Low ceiling lighting that sits snug to its fixture may be the answer. It will normally have a central drop or stem on which the arms are mounted. They are usually between 150 and 350 mm tall making them the perfect lighting solution for rooms with lower ceilings.
Semi Flush Mounted Ceiling Light Fittings
The great thing about ceiling lights for low ceilings is that they can be used anywhere. On high ceilings they can be a feature whilst being less intrusive. Mounted on a landing or in a stairwell, a large semi flush light can look spectacular as the eye is drawn up the stairs to the fitting above. Halogen fittings are spectacular and can be a fantastic addition to any room, with the added benefit of being dimmable.
More traditional ceiling lights may have glass shades fitted with either upward or downward facing lamp bulbs and are ideal for low ceilings. It is important to remember that both will give a different effect. The upward facing bulb will bounce light off the ceiling and back into the room giving a softer more diffused light, whilst the downward facing bulb will give a more direct and consequently brighter light. It is also worth remembering that you can see the lamp bulb in a downward facing fitting so it may be worth fitting opal or soft tone lamps.
Whatever style you decide on, please ensure that your choice will give adequate light for its use and that it is proportionate to the surroundings. For more comprehensive information, please see choosing the right ceiling light in our buying guides.
