Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between flush and semi-flush mount lights?
The difference between flush and semi-flush lights is the fixture’s final position once installed. A flush mount sits flat against the ceiling, while a semi-flush mount is designed to have a visual gap between the light and the ceiling. A semi-flush mounted ceiling light often falls between a flush mount and a pendant light.
Why choose a flush mount or semi-flush mount?
Choose a flush- or semi-flush mounted light based on the ceiling height where you are mounting it. Ceilings should generally be seven feet from the floor to allow enough clearance (18–24 inches) below the light for people to safely pass beneath it. If your space has ceilings lower than seven feet, opt for a flush mount light to maximize your clearance. If you’re installing in an area that’s susceptible to a lot of wind, a flush mount light may also help block debris from getting into the bulb area, saving you some cleaning time.
