Nicely, that’s what occurred with my seek for the proper black semi-flush mount ceiling mild for the lengthy entrance into our residence fitness center. Absolutely the good mild was this black and gold semi-flush light from Target. And it’s solely $90!

Nevertheless it’s unavailable, and there’s no indication when it’ll be again in inventory. As good as that mild is, I’m too impatient to attend round for it to be restocked (particularly contemplating how lengthy stuff like that’s taking lately), so I begrudgingly started my seek for one other mild.

I didn’t need to drag out my search, as I generally tend to do, so I went to Amazon, put in my search parameters (black, underneath $200, lower than 12 inches excessive), after which chosen my high 5 favorites out of these outcomes. Listed here are these 5.

  1. Log Barn semi-flush ceiling light with seeded glass, $149
  2. Dainolite semi-flush 3-light with black shade, $120
  3. Vanity Art 2-light star semi-flush light, $179
  4. Dainolite matte black semi-flush light, $170
  5. Dainolite 3-light aged brass with black shade, $140

So I did some mock ups of these lights within the residence fitness center, together with the black door, and a replica and paste of the flooring that I’ll be utilizing. It’s removed from good, however you may at the least get an thought of what it’s going to appear to be. And there’s no manner that these lights are to scale, however we’re largely wanting on the fashion.

Right here’s the primary Log Barn semi-flush light with the seeded glass.

I’m typically not an enormous fan of seeded glass just because I don’t like uncovered bulbs (with only a few exceptions), and seeded glass doesn’t obscure the bulbs fairly sufficient for my style. However I do suppose that’s a really fairly mild fixture, and it was in my high 5.

Subsequent up is the Dainolite semi-flush with black shade.

I like the clear look of this one. It’s easy and trendy with clear traces and no frills. That appears good for a house fitness center.

Right here’s a have a look at the Vanity Art star semi-flush light.

I’ve to confess that I LOVE star lights, and I’ve been looking out for the proper star mild (one which doesn’t have clear glass that expose the bulbs, and this one suits the invoice), and the proper place in our residence to place a star mild. Might this be it?

Subsequent, let’s check out the Dainolite matte black semi-flush light.

I’m unsure how I really feel in regards to the traces on the sunshine with the strips on the wall. It could be too visually busy. However I do like the sunshine!

And eventually, we have now the Dainolite aged brass fixture with black shade.

That mock up appears humorous as a result of it’s a sq. mild, however the one image out there was taken from an angle. Clearly, if I used this mild, the sq. shade can be squared up with the partitions. 😀 My perfectionism with slight OCD tendencies would make me cringe each time I noticed this mild if it weren’t squared up completely with the partitions.

Doing these mock ups actually helps to slender down the choice. As I used to be doing them this morning, one mild stood out to me as the best choice for this space. I gained’t inform you which one stood out to me, as a result of I need to see if it stands out to all of you as effectively. Which one would you select, and why?
