Our home has standard height ceilings. We have looked into having the great room vaulted, but at a staggering cost of no less than $30K due to the way our roof is supported, our 8′ ceilings are suddenly looking a-okay. But the boob fixtures, you know the ones, are not okay and we have them everywhere. Chances are, you do too. They are cheap and have been around for a long time, so they have been the go-to for contractors to use in homes. Little ones, big ones. In our entry we have a reddish-toned one that makes me especially twitchy.
Lighting makes such a difference and one by one, we can’t wait to upgrade them. And the good news is–there are so many beautiful flushmounts and semi-flushmounts these days that fit into a wide range of budgets. Here are five, but there’s 15 more in my article for Houzz this month ranging from $15 to $500. Check them all out here.
