A room will only look as good as its lighting allows it to. There needs to be enough light to provide adequate illumination across the entire space, but not so much that it creates a bland and boring washed-out appearance. Traditionally creating a warm and comfortable ambiance was accomplished by installing chandeliers or other forms of hanging lights. This approach is still taken by many designers today, but some rooms simply can't accommodate a full-sized chandelier. When this is the case Capital semi flush mount lighting provides a perfect solution.
In rooms that have low ceiling clearances semi flush mounts provide a solution that doesn't involve treading carefully to avoid head injuries. They are similar to flush mount lights, but are suspended slightly from the ceiling, typically by four to eight inches. This allows for reflection of the light of the ceiling, which is more visually interesting than light that is directed only downward into the room.
This form of close to ceiling lights is available in a wide range of styles, sizes, and finishes to ensure that any room will be improved upon with the installation of semi flush mounts. They add charm and elegance to dining rooms when placed above the table without restricting space like a full hanging light, and can be equipped with dimmer switches to provide a larger degree of control over ambient light in any room. It's a mistake to think of semi-flush lighting as only appropriate for rooms with an explicitly modern style. Capital lighting produces a wide variety of more traditional decorative lighting styles available as well.
While distinctive style and interesting light patterns are essential for dining rooms, living rooms, and other highly-trafficked areas it's sensible to choose more practical lighting solutions for entryways, hallways, and other areas that require ambient light but don't get a lot of attention. Semi-flush mount lighting is perfect for these applications as well, as it is takes up less space but still provides a distinctive element of style and sophistication.
Choosing the right lighting fixture is usually a matter of both practical considerations and personal taste. Just be sure to take available space into account, and always purchase high-quality fixtures from brand-name manufacturers. This helps to avoid broken glass and other dangerous situations and ensures that all of the fixtures will continue to look beautiful and function as intended for decades to come.
