What are semi-flush ceiling lights?
Semi-flush ceiling lights are an ideal lighting solution for rooms with lower ceilings. They offer a compromise between flush ceiling lights, which are fitted flush to the ceiling with little or no suspension, and full-size hanging pendants which require a higher ceiling. Semi-flush ceiling lights are typically less than 350mm in height which means that they can hang from a lower ceiling without being obtrusive or dangerous. They allow you to get the effect of a grand hanging pendant or chandelier but without the impracticalities of the larger, full-size ceiling lights. Put very simply, traditional semi flush ceiling lights are space-saving alternatives to larger ceiling pendants, however the stunning designs and styles available mean that they are not a compromise on quality
When to choose semi-flush ceiling lights
Newer buildings often have lower ceilings than older ones. When a ceiling is lower than 3 metres in height it makes it difficult to hang large ceiling lights because they could collide with people's heads. Semi-flush ceiling lights are large enough to have the eye-catching effect that you would get from a larger fitting but without getting in the way.
Some semi-flush ceiling lights have upward facing bulbs, meaning that the light is reflected onto the ceiling, while others will have downward facing bulbs. These will give a different effect in your rooms so it is important to do your research before buying to see which style suits you best.
