Flush Mount Lighting
In the 50’s and 60’s we all lived with ordinary flush mount lighting fixtures, a single bulb, and a rather ugly glass cover. Today’s flush mount lighting is smarter, more beautiful, and more useful, delivering far better light. Add to that a dimmer at the switch and you’ve got all you need to create the room of your dreams.
Ceilings appear higher with flush mount fixtures. And in a contemporary or mid-century modern Wisconsin home, flush mount fixtures streamline the look. If ceilings are low, they give the impression of more headroom.
Consider a technique that connects your interior rooms to the garden outside the windows. Blur the lines of indoor and outdoor living making your living spaces feel bigger. To do this, place flush mount fixtures (on a dimmer) near windows or patio doors with a view, and, exterior lighting close to the glass outside your home. Flush mount lighting tucks up and away, close to the ceiling, so it never blocks the view of a seamless indoor-outdoor living space.
We like flush mount fixtures-
- where ceiling lighting conflicts with doors near entries
- when creating feature lighting like placing several fixtures down a hallway
- in bedrooms to instantly illuminate the space.
You’ll find an incredible selection of flush mount lighting including art glass from Quoizel, glass and bronze by Feiss, Mission-style from Minka Lavery, and completely contemporary from Kichler, they act as an important element of the décor.
