Design Agony! Lighting For Low Ceilings (We Found 33 Perfect Options)

I’m engaged on so many initiatives proper now they usually all have ONE want in widespread – a large, multi-bulb, semi-flush mount mild fixture. And I’m completely satisfied to say that there isn’t a gap available in the market and for as soon as there are SO MANY to select from. However since actually all of my initiatives want this I figured a few of you may also (or won’t even notice you wanted this).

Right here’s why:

  1. Perform: most older properties both don’t have or don’t need recessed lighting, however one bulb isn’t sufficient lighting (particularly within the darker months up north).
  2. Scale: Having only one fixture in the course of a giant ceiling is simply not that attention-grabbing and the dimensions of it will probably really feel off if the room is on the larger aspect.
  3. Curiosity and Affect: You don’t need to neglect the ceiling and lighting is such a great way to make a press release, however most older properties solely have one junction field within the center (so the choice of a number of flush mounts, which can be a factor just isn’t potential with out quite a lot of work/value).
  4. YET low ceilings…until you’ve vaulted ceilings, you may’t match a typical chandelier, thus the “low however extensive” want, clocking most of those below 16″. Most of those beneath would work for an 8’ ceiling, and if it’s over a mattress or espresso desk you may drop it much more (most likely not more than 18-24”).

Hey everybody! It’s Jess and I’m now taking up this put up. Emily did quite a lot of mild fixture pinning however requested me so as to add in some extra choices as she had rather a lot on her plate this week. So when you’ve got a low ceiling we’re each right here to assist. Under are 33 vetted choices that we predict you’ll love! There’s one thing for everybody:) Let’s start.

1. Huxley Massive | 2. Trendy Flush Mount | 3. Alameda

Now, this primary bunch is admittedly trendy BUT additionally stylish and versatile…if I do say so myself. The primary one (aka #1) couldn’t be less complicated and but extra lovely. With frosted blubs this might give off the prettiest mild. Nicely, really that goes for any frosted uncovered bulb:) However this fixture additionally is available in black and begins at an 8″ drop with plenty of top choices. The center mild possibility I can personally vouch for as a result of I owned it! It’s solely 10″ tall however with a 32″ width. You possibly can see it in motion within the pictures above. So whereas I didn’t have a low ceiling it was such a fairly fixture and now lives in my finest pal’s home in New York who wanted a brief and extensive mild. It’s additionally not a nasty worth. Lastly, is one other Park Studio gem and is fairly freaking cool. Undoubtedly trendy and has a beginning top of 9″ and a width of 60″. WHAT?! In case you have the price range, it is a very stylish possibility that might give off nice mild.

1. Altona Barebulb Semi-Flush Mount | 2. Trio Chandelier | 3. Trendy Flush Mount

Holding on that straightforward, linear practice (however with a twist), I like these three. The primary possibility, from our beloved Rejuvenation, is gorgeous, clearly, however with the wooden accents feels slightly hotter which is a pleasant possibility. Nevertheless, it is available in three different colorways! It’s additionally solely 15″ tall and has a 29″ width (I imagine that’s minus the bulbs so you may add a pair extra inches!). The second possibility is an actual looker and BIG KID. It does have a minimal top of 18.5″ however a width of just about 52″. I additionally simply love that brass tone. Lastly, now we have an ideal barely smaller possibility that solely drops from the ceiling 8″ however is 24″ extensive. It’s enjoyable, clear, and in addition fairly reasonably priced.

1. Renee Semi Flush | 2. Boccia Curved Shade Flush Mount Mild | 3. Ashleigh Semi Flush

Need extra bulbs? I’ve acquired you. All three of those have a way more classic trendy really feel (and primarily MCM). Take our first mild. It’s acquired these attractive giant frosted blubs blended with black and chrome for a really on-trend but traditional look. It’s solely 15″ tall and has a width of 28″. It additionally has quite a lot of visible impression! It is available in black and brass if that’s extra your model. Now I’m fairly obsessive about #2 and it’s one which Em pinned first. It’s vintage-inspired, makes such a visible assertion, and is actually an ideal worth! Additionally, it’s solely 7.5″ tall however has a 34.5″ width! The final one on the fitting is the smallest of the group however is so traditional (sorry, I do know this part says it’s solely giant lights). This one is available in at 18″ tall and 20″ extensive, so it’s nice for a small to medium-sized room! Oh, and it additionally is available in chrome:)

1. Jensen Black Metallic Semi-Flushmount Mild | 2. Stella TRIENNALE | 3. Brendle 3-Arm Semi-Flush Chandelier

However for these with giant rooms, these three are superior. I am keen on the perforated element on the steel shades within the first one. I believe this might work with SO totally different types and the worth is nice. It’s additionally an exquisite top at 15.75″ and a 55″ width! Our center youngster is costly however man is it so lovely. It’s a primary candidate for a low ceiling because it’s 9″ tall and 34 extensive. It will give off A LOT of sunshine when wanted. Then lastly, now we have an EHD favourite that’s presently in TWO rooms on the farmhouse (front room, as proven above, and household room). Classic-inspired, a top quality we completely stand behind, and so fairly! It’s juuuust over 15″ tall and 40″ extensive. And as you may see, Emily’s front room just isn’t small and it really works completely size-wise. This is available in brass and black:)

1. Nouveau Aged Gold Three-Mild Semi-Flush Mount with Opal Glass | 2. Jane 3 Mild Semi-Flush Ceiling Mild | 3. Tinsley Semi-Flushmount

So I do know that width is a giant a part of Emily’s present lighting wants however I need to give a number of extra (actually three) barely smaller choices in case you want one for a smaller room. The primary one is just like one of many choices above however it’s even shorter! This Parisian-inspired beaut is available in at 11″ tall and simply over 25″ extensive, which is a fairly good width in case you ask me, particularly for the worth. The second is a good higher worth, can be wildly versatile stylistically, and is even SHORTER at 6″ tall and 24″ extensive! It additionally is available in white. However in order for you one thing that feels a bit extra ornamental I like #3. And get this…it’s solely 4″ tall however is 33″ in diameter. So really not that small in spite of everything:)

1. Decatur Chandelier | 2. Wilson Mid-Century White Metallic Chandelier Mild | 3. Uncooked Brass Semi Flush Ceiling Mild

Whereas sometimes we go for extra ambient lighting for an overhead fixture, when you’ve quite a lot of bulbs in a single fixture you don’t have to fret about it not lighting the room correctly. So let’s speak in regards to the first one. I LOVE the patina and form. Sure, it’s additionally vintage-inspired, as most of those are, however come on it’s good. The value is hefty however for that form of patina, I’m not shocked. When it comes to dimension, the minimal top is 16.5″ and the width is 42″! So in case you love the overall form of #1 however need one thing extra trendy MCM (and a cheaper price tag), the second is superior. I like the supplies and it nonetheless has that nice form. This one has a minimal top of 10.6″ and a width of 45.5″. Wow wow! Our final one doesn’t completely match into this class however simply ignore that. It’s so cute, small, and is a superb worth. At simply over 6″ tall and 18.25″ extensive, it’s an ideal possibility for the fitting dimension room.

1. Mid Century Linear Double Shade Chandelier | 2. Madera Linear Pendant | 3. Griffith Linear Suspension | 4. Andre White and Brass 2-Mild Pendant | 5. Bicentric Sconce | 6. Ondu Twin Flush Mount

Okay, so now that the roundup has gotten bigger I gained’t write you an entire dissertation on these STUNNERS. Nevertheless, I can’t get sufficient of those. Since these have shades you need to take into account the sunshine distribution. This implies #2, #3, and #4 (which you’ll be able to see within the photograph above) are going to have far more directional/process lighting than the others the place the bulbs are extra uncovered. But when your house doesn’t must be fully illuminated in a giant approach, like in a eating room or kitchen, then any of those would work completely. However for actual for actual how CUTE is the little curve in #1??

1. DANNA Chandelier | 2. Hargrove 10 Chandelier | 3. Aston Chandelier | 4. HAVANA Chandelier | 5. Camryn XL Glass Globe Flush Mount | 6. FLUGBO | 7. COBE | 8. Kira Chandelier | 9. Glass Orb Ceiling Chandelier

I save the most important and brightest (actually) for final. If you would like extra of a chandelier look regardless of these quick ceilings look no additional. None of those are taller than 18.25″ (and most no less than a number of inches below that). All of those are actually particular in their very own methods and are going to present off superior mild! And whereas there’s no want to choose favorites #7 is undeniably unimaginable (and was one other high Em choose) and actually, I’m fairly taken with #9. Take a look at Goal getting very stylish! I’m a excessive/low lady what can I say:)

We actually hope this was useful and that we saved you hours of looking the web. That’s our job so you may sit again and calm down. Joyful mild buying.

Love you, imply it.
