New Light Fixture

Kelly BaileyAugust 19, 2014
My house was built in the 40s and the older portion of it has 8 foot ceilings. The fixture in my entryway is ok, but kind of boring. Since ceilings are so low, I'm having a hard time finding a replacement. Suggestions?

Glad that you pointed out your ceilings are low because that helps me narrow down the kinds of lights to recommend for you!

I would recommend a semi-flush mount or flush mount, similar in composition to what you have now but more exciting in appearance. The good news is that there are more styles of ceiling mounts than ever before. There are ones that look like drum pendant lights, ones encrusted with name it, it's out there for you. You may want to pick something with a more retro feel because of your home's age and history.

Our semi-flush mounts are here:

Styles you may want to look at include period, schoolhouse, traditional, mission, art deco and art nouveau.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more guidance.
