Finding the right flush mount can sometimes be a tricky process. If your house is like mine, you probably have 9 foot ceilings in most rooms and unless you are hanging a fixture over a table or a bar, that doesn't leave a whole lot of room for a light fixture. Typically you will only want to use something that is 10-15 inches high which is where flush mount fixtures come in handy. However, there are beautiful flush mounts... and then there are "boob lights."
See what I mean? Why would you settle for an ugly, generic "boob light," when there are so many more attractive and equally affordable options available?
Here are a few of my favorite ones:
Shades of Light: Nantucket Ceiling Light
School House Electric: Satellite Surface Mount
Lamps Plus: Mission Hills Ceiling Light
Shades of Light: Small Interlocking Ceiling Light
Circa Lighting: Basil Flush Mount
Circa Lighting: Large Club Square Flush Mount
These are just a few of the great option that are out there. I got to thinking about this topic a couple weeks ago when my friend Abbie contacted me asking for help finding a great looking flush mount to replace an ugly old light that she had in her home, but she didn't want to break her wallet to get it replaced.
I did some research for her and got to thinking that there are probably a lot of us out there who have old, outdated ceiling lights that get overlooked, and we don't replace them because we don't think it will make a huge difference or we don't know where to look for a beautiful replacement. Here is a little before and after of Abbie's home:
MUCH BETTER!! We found her new fixture at Home Depot and Abbie and I are both really pleased with how the new light turned out!
Do you have any light fixtures in your home that are in need of an update?
