What is a semi flush mount ceiling light?
Semi-flush ceiling lights extend below the ceiling providing a more widespread illumination compared to flush mounts as the light can effectively escape through the top and the bottom of the globe.
The semi-flush mount light fixture is suspended in a way that leaves a small gap between the ceiling and the fixture. That gap enhances an up-lit effect and provides a straight downward light.
These types of ceiling fixtures offer a better atmospheric light effect compared to flush mount fixtures. They are ideal and preferred by many for living rooms.

Can You Put a Semi Flush Mount Light on a Sloped Ceiling?
