Where to buy flush mount lights
Here’s a good list of online retailers that sell a wide array of these types of ceiling lights:
Semi-Flush mount vs. Ceiling Fan Lights
Technically, a ceiling fan light is also a semi-flush mount light by way of design except it has a fan attached to it, but generally accepted ceiling light categorization separates these two ceiling light types. I think distinguishing the two makes sense because a person looking for a ceiling fan light is really looking for something different than a simple ceiling light.
Likewise, someone looking for a semi-flush mount light may not want a fan attached to it.
Semi-flush mount vs. Flush Mount Ceiling Lights
The difference is pretty obvious. A pure flush mount’s light shade is flush to the ceiling, whereas a semi-flush mount’s shade edge has space between it and the ceiling surface.
Semi-flush vs. Pendant
Sometimes it’s not easy to distinguish these two types of ceiling lights. However, a pendant suspends from the ceiling with a cord or chain so it can swing, whereas a semi-flush mount light cannot swing. Usually, pendant drops down further than a semi-flush mount light.
Are flush mount lights popular in master bedrooms?
They aren’t terribly popular. Recessed lights and lamps are more popular. That said, flush mounts are common in guest and kids’ bedrooms.
The reason is that flush mount lights aren’t the most sophisticated light fixture. They’re generally pretty simple, although semi-flush mounts can be a bit more elegant. The more common options in master bedrooms are recessed lights, table lamps, and wall lights.
