The 30 Best Flush Mount Lighting Fixtures

Opening up the hallway in our renovation meant that the two lights on one end don’t go with the newly exposed third light from the back side of the house. It’s not the worst thing in the world but the mismatched fixtures irk me, so I’d rather not put them off. Of course, this means I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at flush mount fixtures lately. So many of them are so ugly! There are some great ones out there too though, and I’ve narrowed down the assortment out there to the 30 best — presented here for your illumination (and mine).

A Makeover with Formerly Painted Wood Paneling

The current trends of all-white-everything and trim painted to match the walls in homes is lovely. Honestly, our Victorian would look beautiful with all of the wood painted out. Take away the strong feelings associated (on both sides) with painted woodwork and look at it objectively, and it would be amazing. That said, I have no plans to paint the trim downstairs, and I can’t relate to much of what seems to be out there in the decorating world right now. So when I came across a stunning before and after of a Parisian apartment with painted wood that was stripped down and stained, I thought I’d share.

Before: A+B Kasha

After: A+B Kasha

The floor makes a huge difference here, of course. Had the chevron flooring been uncovered and the paint freshened up instead of stripped, this would still be a stunning makeover. But still, it’s nice (for me, at least!) to see some unpainted wood being brought back in all its glory.
