If you have a low ceiling height in your home – something around 2.4 metres would be usual – you need to take care about the height of your ceiling light. Our experts say that you should leave around 2 metres of space underneath your light to permit easy movement of even the tallest in your family.
So by this rule of thumb if your ceiling is a standard lower type you should look for items with less than 45cm height. Our bespoke shades come in lots of combinations; team a large shallow drum with a Pathos short suspension rod to really make a dramatic statement.
Dimmable LED bulbs will allow you to vary the output to suit your needs. Insider tip! If you are installing over a dining table or kitchen island with a low ceiling you can consider something with more drop – think about hanging something pendant there for maximum decorative effect.

The vast majority of contemporary build houses have lower ceiling heights than traditional builds at around 2.4m. When selecting ceiling lighting for low ceilings it is vital to take into account the height of your ceiling, for example a semi flush light fitting no deeper than approximately 38cm would work best here.

Often the chain or flex on a light fitment can be shortened however sometimes the body of the light itself may be too deep for a low ceiling. If you are in any doubt about the suitability of any light fitting for your ceiling please contact us for advice, we are happy to help.
