Today’s kitchens are more than just a place to prepare food, they are gathering spaces for family and friends and are often the hub of the house. A great way to add decorative style in this space is through great lighting.
Flush mount lights—fixtures mounted flush with the ceiling— are the newest lighting trend for your kitchen. Although flush mount lights may conjure up images of kitchens from the 1970’s, today's models are the hottest selling kitchen lights. Flush mount lights have been updated with a fresh and modern look that many homeowners seek. They can be used to stunning effect in your kitchen.
Flush mount ceiling lights are especially useful in low-ceiling spaces where low hanging pendants and chandeliers would pose a safety risk. In kitchens where the ceiling height is 8 feet or less, flush mount lighting can keep the kitchen visually open, while still adding a design focus.
Flush mount lights can add personal style and charm to the heart of your home. These lights do not need to match pendant or other kitchen lighting or come from the same collection of lights. Keep your lighting design cohesive by using the same finish (oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, gloss white), or the same general style (industrial, contemporary, farmhouse, etc.). Match the same color temperature (3000K to 4500K) to keep the transitions seamless from one lighting fixture to the next.
