How to decorative light fixtures for low ceilings. To create a dramatic and elegant atmosphere, then the overhead lighting is finding the right fixture for your ceiling height. The ceiling is low or high can be confusing, find a fixture that creates a dramatic style.
Here’s the design dilemma: The bottom of the light fixture should be hung no lower than 6’8″ above the floor to avoid hitting your head when walking underneath. When you have an 8-foot high ceiling, that leaves you only 16″ of height to play with for a dramatic light fixture.
A great way to address lighting in a hallway with a low ceiling is to create repetition using a flush-mounted ceiling light. This repetitive pattern can create interest and drama when you don’t have the space for a larger fixture.
Aside from decorative light fixtures, you can also create lighting for low-ceilings using architecture. This bedroom created a dramatic setting using an l-shaped soffit with soft recessed lighting on both the ceiling and wall.
The bedroom is a place where you want to create mood and style. Typically a great boudoir chandelier is a great way to do that, but when you have a lower ceiling you run the risk hitting your head on the chandelier getting in and out of bed. This bedroom is a great example of making use of a gorgeous fixture while still keeping the height constraints in mind.
