Many Options to Choose From
Ceiling-mounted fixtures are especially practical in areas with a great deal of activity, such as
hallways, playrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. When you’re shopping for
ceiling lights, it can be tough making a decision just because there’s so many
options. That’s why it helps to browse online sites such as Click Lighting,
which showcases a range of styles and colours featuring quality brands like
Hinkley, Robert Abbey or Kichler. You may find that the elegant aesthetic of
Kichler ceiling lighting is exactly what your interior space needs to make an
impact and elevate the comfort and modern look of your home.
Flush Mount Vs. Semi-Flush Mount Lighting
There are some key terms that are helpful to know when it comes to
ceiling lighting. Lights that attach to
the ceiling with little or no gap between the fixture and the ceiling are
called flush mounts. These are versatile, clean and sleek fixtures that are
usually best for homes with a modest ceiling height. Brushed nickel, bronze and
alabaster etched glass are common combinations of materials for flush mount
lights and all are featured in the Kichler ceiling lighting collections. Flush
mount lights are subtle fixtures but can also be quite striking and modern when
placed in the right room.
Lights that attach to the ceiling with a stem or piece that creates a
space between the ceiling and light are called semi-flush lights. Semi-flush
lights are a hybrid of chandelier and flush mount lighting. If you have higher
ceilings, then semi-flush lights would be a good option. As well, if you’re
looking for lighting in your kitchen, consider hanging a semi-flush ceiling
light over your kitchen island to give the space some character. Changing light
bulbs in semi-flush lighting can be a little easier compared to flush mount
lighting and some argue that semi-flush fixtures are more versatile.
Ceiling lights can be placed in highly visible areas in your living space
for dramatic effect or they can work well in areas of the house that don’t get
much focus, such as hallways and closets. Cost-efficient LED lighting is very popular at the
moment and either flush mount or semi-flush mount ceiling designs could
accommodate this type of lighting. Regardless,
there are so many varieties of both flush mount and semi-flush mount lighting offered
by designers like Kichler that you’re bound to find something in either design
that best suits the rooms in your home.
Where to Start
you’re not certain where to start, it’s a good idea to visit a showroom in
person to get a sense of the scope and look of the type of lighting you’re
considering. This can supplement any online browsing you may be doing and you
may find that websites such as Click Lighting often carry a wide selection of
products that can be shipped to you anywhere in Canada. If you’re also looking
for expert advice on lighting design in general, consider looking up the American Lighting Association website. This is a comprehensive resource on the aesthetics of lighting design.
Another way to ensure you’re getting the best possible guidance for your
Kichler lighting fixture is hiring an interior design. Be sure to consult
either the Canadian
Decorators’ Association or the Interior Designers of Canada for assistance.
