Find The Perfect Lighting For Low Ceilings

Posted on May 29 2020

The standard and most common ceiling height in US homes is 8ft. While trends show homes being built, and some remodeled, to offer taller ceilings most existing homes have a standard ceiling height of 8 feet.

If you aren’t planning to remodel any time soon, we suggest working with your existing ceiling height and looking at lighting options that fit. The type of light fixture you are looking for will depend on what area of the home you are lighting. Aside from different lighting usage needs, hallways, foyers, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and dining rooms have different lighting size and hanging guidelines.

What Light Fixture Should I Look For?

Generally speaking, fixtures with low profile designs such as flush mounts, semi-flushes, and even track light fixtures can work in any space of a home with low ceilings. There are a wide variety of these fixtures that can offer widespread ambient light as well as varying degrees of diffused light.

Stylistically, there are many ways to use these low-profile light fixtures in a space. If you are looking to create drama, draw focus, or play with color in a room with a low-ceiling then look for light fixtures that offer bold color, gleaming crystals, two-tone finishes, or unique designs. Another option involves utilizing minimalist designs for a sleek, clean look.
