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).
Bell Flush Mount Lamp, CB2
Sometimes modern design like this comes with a big price tag, but these little guys are affordable and available in white and brass, or black and steel.
Oxnard 2-Light Ceiling Brushed Nickel Flush Mount, Home Depot
A sleek and simple light without a lot of fuss for a great price.
Alabax Medium, Schoolhouse Electric
Adorable! Choose your porcelain color from marigold yellow, gray, white, or black.
A faceted fixture that looks like collectible milk glass.
Nantucket Ceiling Light, Shades of Light
The antique copper finish lends some antique charm, but you can also choose matte black or brushed stainless.
Allen + Roth Harpwell Oil-Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Flush Mount, Lowe’s
The clean lines and oil-rubbed bronze make this a simple but handsome fixture.
