When you’re trying to decide on the type of Quoizel ceiling
light that’s right for your home, it’s important to consider ceiling height
before making your decision.
If your ceiling is seven and a half feet or lower, a flush
ceiling light is necessary. If you cringe at the thought of a dowdy flush-mount
ceiling light like mom and dad had, think again. Quoizel has a wide variety of
modern ceiling lights so you can find one to fit your style. If you’re looking
for something modern, glass and chrome is always a good look, like this flush-mount
ceiling light or one with a fun design worked into the
glass like this modern
chrome ceiling light
. If you prefer the retro look, newer Palladian bronze flush-mount lights make the vintage look anything but boring.
Medium ceilings measure about eight feet or lower. Your best
choice for this type of ceiling is a semi-flush light or a flush light. You
have enough clearance to have a more playful light that may hang down a little
more. For example, the flush-mount
Millenia ceiling light
is a fun, modern light that wouldn’t work on a lower
ceiling. This semi-flush
is a good example of modern semi-flush design.
If you have a high ceiling, the sky is the limit for
lighting choices - well, almost. A high
ceiling allows you to put pendant lights or chandeliers in the room.
If you like pendant lights, try to stick with a larger
pendant, like the Quoizel
Piccolo pendant light
. If the room is large, you may want to consider
placing a line of equally-spaced pendant lights to provide more light. Try to
hang three lights or another odd number since odd numbers tend to appear more
balanced and draw the eye.
If your ceiling is nine feet tall, your pendant light should
hang 15–23” below the ceiling. For every foot higher than nine, add three
inches to hanging height. This means a ten-foot ceiling has a pendant light
that hangs 18–26” below the ceiling and so on.
There are so many designs that it’s easy to have some fun
with your pendant lights. You can pick modern designs like the Satin
that are playful and relaxed—perfect for the family room.
For a retro look, try the Western
If your ceiling is strong enough and you’d prefer one
fixture that provides light across the room, consider a chandelier. You’ll need
to leave at least seven feet of clearance between the floor and the
chandelier’s bottom. If it’s a two-story ceiling, you can hang it nine feet
above the floor for a majestic focal point.
It can be overwhelming when you start your search for the
perfect ceiling light since there are so many different colours, sizes, and
even types of lights. The height of the ceiling should be the first factor you
consider before choosing your new Quoizel ceiling lights.
