Different Types of Ceiling Lights

The right ceiling lighting can make a big difference to the general ambiance of any room. You could have the most stunning, expensive décor, and every piece of furniture in a particular room is perfect for each other, but if you don’t have enough ceiling light, or you’re using the wrong type of light to illuminate it, then your space will always seem dull.

Different types of ceiling lights are suited for different spaces. For example, Union Lighting flush mounts are perfect for 8-foot ceilings. Whereas, semi-flush mount lights are best suited for 9- and 10- foot ceilings.

Let us now look into more types of ceiling lights.

  • Chandeliers

Chandeliers are the perfect way to add some sophisticated and classy lighting to a room. They are usually used in dining rooms and living rooms or any other formal or semiformal space. Chandeliers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. They can be very elaborate and ornate, or even simple and yet elegant.

  • Pendants

Pendants are small ceiling lights, mostly used as dining room lights in modern houses. They come in different colors and designs and can be hung on the ceiling of a dining table. You can also choose to hang them in a cluster above your table or kitchen island, or you can even use them as a desk lamp.

  • Flush mounts

Flush mounts are among the top choices for lighting over dining and kitchen tables. They have no visible fixtures and hold the light source within the shade, which is attached to a metal plate that is placed on the ceiling. These lights are available in various designs, colors, and sizes, with some offering adjustments to focus light on whatever you need it to illuminate.

  • Semi-flush mounts

Semi-flush mounts are less bulky and sophisticated than flush mounts. They may not be as perfect for a formal room, but they’re great for family rooms, living rooms, and other spaces where you need to brighten up but don’t need to be too fancy about it.

  • Linear suspensions

Linear suspensions are widely used in offices and study rooms. They hang over desks and line the walls. These lights work well in brightening up a space, and some of them even provide added lighting over the desk. You can also use these lights to brighten up a dark corner of your home.
