Flush mount ceiling lights are those that attach to the ceiling with no gap between the light fixture and the ceiling. Semi-flush mounts are similar, but they have a stem (or some other part) that creates a gap between the fixture and the ceiling. Both styles are ideal for rooms where general illumination is needed but there is no room for a hanging fixture. The bottom of any ceiling fixture should be at least 7 feet from the floor; flush and semi-flush mounts are ideal for a room with low ceilings.
