1. Flush Mount Ceiling Lights

The full-flush ceiling lights are mounted flush with the surface of the ceiling. The lights are placed directly on the ceiling with no hanging parts. The frame and glass of the lighting fixture are attached directly to the ceiling giving it a more streamlined look. This allows greater creative flexibility on where you install the lights. The sleek and simple design of the lighting provides unobtrusive illumination to the living space.

As the name implies, the semi-flush ceilings lights are not completely affixed to the ceiling similar to the full-flush ceiling lights. They hang slightly below the base as you can see in the picture. You can find a number of different types of semi-flush ceiling lights. The light falls somewhere between the full-flush and chandelier ceiling light in style.


2. Murano Glass Ceiling Light

3. Drum Shaped Ceiling Light

6. LED Ceiling Lights

The LED Ceiling lights contain bulbs that are extremely energy efficient. The lights require minimum maintenance as well. Since LED bulbs do not get hot even after being used for long duration, they do not require frequent replacement.

Other than a room illuminated by LED ceiling lights looks modern and slick creating a pleasant impression and increasing the appeal of a room.

Purchase Considerations for Ceiling Lights

The ceiling lights come with different accessories and options. Lighting fixtures with dimmers allow you to adjust the brightness level. This can save energy costs and extend the life of the bulb. They are also available in different bulb type options. You can select halogen, fluorescent, and LED ceiling lights.

When it comes to energy efficiency and bulb lifespan, LED ceiling lights are your best option. These lighting fixtures consist of LED bulbs that allow maximum energy savings. They last for a much longer period also as compared to fluorescent or halogen bulbs, thereby offering you value for money.

Ceiling lights also come in different sizes, design types, and colors. The availability of a large variety of ceiling lights makes it difficult to pin down the best light for a room. You need to look at a number of different factors such as lampshade material and color, size, accessories, and style of the lighting fixture. 

When selecting a ceiling light for the dining table, the recommended height is about 30’’ for the lower part of the ceiling lights. In addition, the diameter of the ceiling lights should be about ½ the tables’ width. You can add the length and width of the room and then convert that resulting number into inches to find the right size ceiling light for the room.

You should also consider the ceiling light shades before buying one for your home. The shade may be a simple opaque glass covering or a premium quality Murano glass. It can be of different shape ranging from drum-shaped, cylindrical, circle, and much more.

On a final note, you must always select the right size ceiling light that perfectly complements the room. Buying an overly large ceiling light for a small space will just make the room look smaller. On the flip side, a small size ceiling light will appear out of place in a large room.
