Despite how provocative/exciting/gross the name is, flushmounts can be rather boring to buy. But, in a room that isn’t tall enough for, or doesn’t need a chandelier, they are necessary (unless you have can or recessed lighting). They are often one of those items that doesn’t get a huge allotment of the budget, either. We’ve all lived in those rentals that have the $19 one from the hardware store and it’s terribly depressing and ruins anything pretty thing that it’s shining its stupid light on. You get what you pay for.
So to help with all your flushmounts (or semi-flushmounts which can sound even WORSE), we rounded up our favorites. As we were shopping there were a lot that we loved that were splurges so instead of this being a budget roundup, this is for all price points with some cheaper options as well as some splurges.

We didn’t have any flushmounts in our house until we redid the guest suite downstairs. Now I probably should have put in can lights but I chose flushmounts instead (I have liked can lighting before, and it’s certainly functional but there is something about it that I don’t feel works in a lot of older homes). For that room I chose #3 and love them. Remember that a diffused light (with a shade or glass on the bottom) is more flattering and easy on the eye, but there are so many that are good that have bare bulbs that I like as well (9, 32, 38, 16, 25, etc). I realized that there were none from Ikea so I triple checked and I like this one.
