Hi, I'm Sharon McCormick, owner of Sharon McCormick Design. The topic of this video is traditional ceiling lights. I'd like to explain to you the different kinds of traditional ceiling lights that exist. The first one is a flush mount. There's no down road, it goes straight up to the ceiling and it's great for locations with low ceilings or when you want to keep a low profile and not highlight the lighting in that area. Semi flush mounts have a small down rod but this adds a more decorative effect. I love to use these in a hallway. Bowl lights come down even further than a semi flush mount so these are great for areas with taller ceilings. They have a nice full shape and come in so many different materials. Pendant lights have a long down rod and come from a single source of light surrounded by a shade and of course we all know the chandelier, one of my favorite types of fixtures. All of these fixtures come in so many different finishes and styles that it's easy to find one that goes with your home decor. In each area I like to do layers of lighting which can include any or all of these depending on the circumstances. Don't be afraid to mix the metal finishes on your fixtures. For example, an antique brass goes fine with an oil rubbed bronze. Brushed nickel goes fine with chrome so have a little fun and do it up. I'm Sharon McCormick from I'd like to thank Connecticut Lighting for allowing us the use of their showroom which you can visit virtually at
