If you are looking for new lighting for your ceiling, there is a wide variety available. One of your options is to install flush ceiling lights. This is a good choice for a small room or one with a low ceiling, as the light is fitted straight against the ceiling and there is no gap between the light and the ceiling at all.
There are round, square or rectangular lights with a completely closed cover. Some of them have frosted glass covers with a crystal inset which diffuses some of the light and creates an interesting effect. The frosted glass could be plain or patterned and there is a trend for small decorative clamps that actually swivel and support the cover of the light.
Flush lighting has various finishes, such as chrome, brushed satin aluminium or antique brass. The latter is used with antique-looking lights, such as the traditional diner light which also has a little tapering brass knob in the centre of the light. This type of light is a good choice for a room with antique furniture.
This kind of lighting also works well in the shape of a mini chandelier, with crystal-like teardrops seemingly suspended from the ceiling. The drops could be Perspex, glass or crystal; the many jewel-like facets of each drop create mini rainbows and soften the light falling through them. These lights would suit a formal dining room or lounge.
Semi flush ceiling lights make use of a short stem between the light and the ceiling mounting. This is the case with lights with so called arms that extend outwards, somewhat like a bunch of flowers falling open, only upside down. The separate lamp shades at the end of each arm could be shaped like a flower, such as a lily, or a tube; some have frosted glass while others are clear. These ceiling lights usually have an uneven number of arms, such as three or five.
