Replace your boring flush ceiling mounts!

We think it’s time to say “No!” to boring, standard ceiling flush mount light fixtures! Flush mount ceiling light fixtures are the most commonly used fixture across homes in the United States–yours don’t have to be just like everyone else’s!

When someone needs a ceiling fixture they typically turn to flush mounts and semi-flush mounts from their local hardware store. While this may be an okay option for some, why live with ordinary? Change out your standard, dated, boring flush mount light fixtures for one with personality.

You may think that the ceiling light fixture options at the hardware store are your most affordable option. Have you even looked at other styles at other places to see how much they cost? You’d be surprised! There are THOUSANDS of different flush mount and semi flush mount ceiling light fixtures in different styles to choose from, all at the same price (or cheaper) than the familiar standbys at your home improvement stores.

As we’ve stated before in previous posts, refreshing your home’s decor could be as easy as just replacing a light fixture or two. You’d be amazed at what a difference it can make. This is especially true for ceiling flush fixtures. If yours are even slightly different than the standard flush mounts you see everywhere people will notice! You’ve got so many options to choose from–sizes, colors, finishes, styles, get what you really want.

Here are just a few of our semi-flush and flush mount fixtures we have available at our Seattle Light Fixture Store.

Have something else in mind? We also specialize in creating custom ceiling light fixtures! Our lighting technicians can help you build a custom fixture that compliments the rest or your space. We can customize it all! The materials, fabrics and finishes are all up to you! Contact our custom light fixture department in Seattle for any custom lighting projects.

Another Custom Light Fixture Project!

One of the many things that sets Harold’s Lighting apart from other lighting stores is our custom lighting work. Our lighting experts know the ins and out of lighting and make just about any object come to “light”!

Here’s a video from a few weeks back of Tiffany, at our Seattle lighting store, working on a new custom project:

Tiffany is making some natural wood finials. She’s attaching the wood to bases of antique brass, silver and more!

Finials are the pieces that go at the top of a lamp to fasten the shade and the base together. Changing up your finial can be a great way to freshen up your fixture! Traditional finials are just caps that match the finish of the fixture but you can get them in crystal, seashell, wood, or just about any shape, symbol or finish!

Here some images of our finial case at our Seattle lighting store:



Who knew there were so many ways to customize a light fixture?!


Can you believe it’s Halloween already? We’ve been so busy this year with new lighting ideas that the time has just flown by. We love Halloween and wish everyone safe and fun holiday!
