In spaces with standard or low ceilings, the standard lighting choice is generally restricted to flushmount and semi-flushmount lighting, due to its utility in a limited space. However, there remain many options within flushmount and semi-flushmount lighting fixtures that meet the lighting needs of a space while enhancing the style and look of a room. With options ranging from minimal styles to more modern and eye-catching designs, choosing to upgrade your flushmount and semi-flushmount lighting can be a simple yet effective way to improve the look of a given space.
For spaces requiring general lighting, minimal lighting fixtures can contribute to an overall sleek and simple style. Hallways and foyers, though often not the focal points of a space, merit an upgrade in order to update the look of a room and take advantage of the benefits of LED technology. Many of the options suited for hallways or foyers fulfill dual purposes, as they can efficiently light a space and provide dimming capabilities made more effective through the use of LED. The options below, while simple in design, remain visually appealing through their use of clean lines and, in some cases, can provide a subtle modern touch to a space.

Modern Meets Classic
In spite of the restrictions of ceiling height, it is possible to achieve the classic look of a chandelier-style fixture with semi-flush mount fixtures. The comparatively greater height of these fixtures can make them more visually impressive while still fitting well in a space with a standard or low ceiling. Whether you’re looking for a style echoing the simple lines of a chandelier or one with a more contemporary feel, there is a wide spectrum of options to choose from. Including an option such as those pictured below can be an easy way to add an elegant touch to any living room, dining room or foyer.
Along with upgrading the style of a space, many of these choices use LED technology and dimming capabilities, which allows for more control over the feel of a space. The complex detail and contemporary feel of other options can effectively tie together a dining room or living room with an elegant, yet modern style.
