When it comes to ceiling lights, the first style that must be coming to your mind are of fancy chandeliers. Delicately carved designed branches and multiple holders of light bulbs make these stylish hanging lights a sophisticated, and functional choice for your room.

If your home has a low ceiling, then you should go with flush mount lights. You may hang these fixtures flat on the ceiling, thus, making them ideal for your low-ceiling house.

Moreover, this kind of lighting is perfect for every room, and a safe bet when it comes to protecting your kids and pets from touching them.
As far as economic advantages of opting for such lights are concerned, these lights are quite cheaper in comparison to hanging lights.
These lights are available in materials like copper, glass and plastic, and you may choose from traditional, transitional and contemporary styled lights.
Also, depending on your varied requirements, they can be easily fitted with incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs, CFLs, and even halogen lights.
So, light up your closets, hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms, entryways and rooms where the ceiling height is less than 8 feet, and feel the spark!

These fixtures are certainly going to add a statement to the appearance of your room. Available at cheaper rates, these fixtures can be fitted with any bulb.
