20 Modern Flush Mount & Semi-Flush Mount Lighting Ideas

One of the first updates we gave our home after buying was replacing all those tacky boob lights with modern flush mount lights. You know the boring building basic light ceiling light fixture with zero personality that gives off little to no light?  We literally had one in almost every single room of our house. Swapping out the basic ho-hum lighting for a new fixture really made a difference in our home. Plus, we actually have a light fixture that gave off more light win-win. 

A quick and easy update you can give a room, is updating the lighting! We installed a Semi Flush mount light in our living room a little over three years ago and I'm still loving it. Previously in our living room we had a ceiling fan, that hung too low and wiggled way too much. 

I’m a huge lover of drum shades and love the double drum light fixture in my living room, it feels like its floating in the ceiling (in a good way). The double drum light fixture in my living room is from Lamps Plus (here) We put the light on a dimmer, because dimmers are a must. Dimmers help control light and set the mood in the room. 

When to Use Flush Mount Lighting 

Flush Mount & Semi-Flush Mount lighting can be used pretty much anywhere in your home. I love flush mount lighting in Hallways, the laundry room, entries and kitchens. The right pretty flush mount light fixture can bring drama in room, and if you have eight foot tall ceilings like I do they’ll quickly become your bestie. In fact, we replaced our too large Sputnik inspired bedroom light in our bedroom with a simple Linen Drum Flush mount from West Elm (here) I'll share a few of the updates I've been working on in my bedroom soon. Before I share my favorite flush mount lighting picks, let’s look at some more inspiration.
