Flush Mounts
Flush mount fixtures are a good source of general lighting in almost every area of the home.

In an entry area, avoid sudden changes in light intensity from the foyer to hall and living areas.

Hallway lighting should be bright enough to light stairs, corners, and any other potential hazardous areas. The light should be bright enough to distinguish a blue coat from black, but not bright enough for reading.

Center lights in bedrooms or studies can provide a general source of soft lighting.

Functional ceiling lights in closets and pantries will assist you in identifying the items you need and help sort colors of clothes in closets.

Florescent lighting in a work area such as a kitchen or laundry room offers an even light, delivering three times the light per watt of an incandescent bulb and lasts 10 to 20 times longer. For this reason, consider fluorescent fixtures in areas where changing bulbs is inconvenient.
