Save Space With Flush Or Semi-Flush Wall Lights

Posted on4 Months ago

When looking for lighting products, you’ll have to navigate through a range of different styles. So, what are flush lights, and why choose them for your home?

Also known as ‘flush mount light,’ these fixtures are mounted directly against the ceiling. Unlike pendant lights and chandeliers, they’re not pendulous, so are therefore popular in rooms with lower ceilings, or those where space is more limited. They can provide attractive illumination without taking up much vertical space. 

Meanwhile, a ‘semi-flush light’ is a type of ceiling fixture that is installed with a small gap between the fixture and the ceiling. 

Unlike flush mount lights that sit directly against the ceiling, semi-flush lights hang down slightly, typically around 6 to 12 inches, creating a more decorative and visually appealing look. For instance, this Merano Lighting Trieste 6 Light Ceiling Semi Flush Light provides an effortlessly beautiful feature in your living space. 


Made with satin brass plate and clear and frosted glass, it’s just one of the stunning semi-flush lights we have available. 

This type of lighting is often used in areas where a little more depth or style is desired compared to flush mount fixtures, but where a pendant or chandelier might be too large or impractical. 

Like flush lights, semi-flush lights come in a variety of styles, sizes, and designs. It’s therefore easy to find one which suits the size and interior design of your room. They are commonly found in hallways, bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms.

Netlighting has flush wall lights in all kinds of styles, including traditional, modern, and contemporary designs.

All our lighting fixtures can use LED lighting to provide you with exceptional energy efficiency. 

The most common rooms which have flush lights include hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. However, they’re also popular in commercial settings like offices and retail stores. They provide functional lighting while also contributing to the overall aesthetic of the space.

Here are just a few of the benefits of choosing flush lights for your home:

As we mentioned earlier, they can save you space, maximising the overhead clearance in your room. 

Flush lights are also highly versatile, coming in all kinds of styles, sizes, and finishes, making them suitable for almost any room in the house, from bedrooms and kitchens to hallways and closets.

Here are just a few of the designs we have available from top brand Luminosa Lighting:

Flush lights can help you achieve even lighting.

Do you often have unwanted shadows in your living room, making it hard to read properly? Flush lights provide much more even illumination across the room, without harsh glare or shadows. They enable us to create a well-lit space that's comfortable for various activities.

Since our flush light fixtures are designed to accommodate LED bulbs, they consume less energy and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, resulting in lower energy bills and reduced maintenance costs.

Another advantage of these lights is they’re easy to maintain.

Since they're mounted flush against the ceiling, flush lights are easy to clean and maintain compared to fixtures that hang down and accumulate dust or require frequent bulb changes.

They’re also generally safer than pendant or chandelier lights. Flush lights are less likely to be accidentally bumped into or knocked over compared to pendant or chandelier lights, reducing the risk of mishaps, especially in high-traffic areas or homes with children or pets.

Create a contemporary room with effortless style.

Flush lights often feature sleek and modern designs that can complement contemporary interior decor styles, adding a touch of sophistication to any room.

As mentioned, we have many flush light fixtures compatible with dimmer switches, allowing you to adjust the brightness according to your needs and create different moods or atmospheres in the room.

To sum up, flush lights offer practicality, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. They’re a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces. If you need help finding the right lighting fixtures for your home, our friendly team is always happy to assist you.

We have a wide range of brands to choose from, including those for tighter budgets.
