So, what is a flush ceiling light? A flush ceiling light is a light fixture that has only one piece that connects to, and is flush, with the ceiling.

One of the greatest benefits of flush ceiling lights is that there is no longer a need for lamps sitting on your floor or table. This will leave plenty of room for more furniture and decoration in your home. Regular lights emit light that will hit directly in ones eyes. Flush ceiling lights let the light bounce off of the ceiling so that it is diffused. As the light scatters around the room, it will make the room brighter and seem larger. Another benefit of these lights is that they give your home a more streamlined look, with no clutter. They can, also, be great energy savers if you use fluorescent light bulbs, instead of incandescent bulbs. However, you will receive the same benefits of an incandescent bulb. Flush ceiling lights use 40W to 100W light bulbs. These are, generally, less expensive than light bulbs that are used in track lighting. The last benefit of flush ceiling lighting is it can be installed in seven easy steps.
