In this post I am sharing the best boob light alternatives for your home.
A boob light replacement is very simple and, let’s be honest, is a hideous light fixture that needs updating!
If you have a light like this in your home, the first order of business is to find a replacement light. In this post, I am sharing all about boob lights. What they are, what to replace them with and how to determine what size light fixture you need. I have also compiled the most beautiful modern boob light replacement fixtures.
What is a Boob Light?
You may be thinking what is a boob light? Well if you don’t know take a look up at your ceiling lights. More than likely you have them throughout your home. They are more professionally called flush-mount dome lights. But if you look long enough you will see why they are commonly referred to as boob lights. These types of ceiling lights are usually the most economical option to use which is why they are probably in your new house. They are what we call “builder-grade”, meaning that new home builders use them because they are so cheap and easy to source.
What Can I Use Instead of a Boob Light?
Replacing your boob lights can make a big impact on the look of your interiors and can really upgrade your space. There are so many great lighting options to choose from instead of the classic boob light. It will all depend on your ceiling height and location.
More than likely a decorative flush mount or semi-flush mount is going to be your best option. In this post, I am sharing the best boob light replacement in both flush and semi-flush styles and at multiple price points so that you can find the best one for your space and budget.
What Does Semi Flush Mount Mean?
Now that I shared what to replace your boob light (also known as a flush mount dome light) with you may be wondering what is a semi flush mount versus a flush mount.
A flush mount light fixture sits directly or flush with the ceiling and provides light shining down. A semi-flush mount is similar but instead of sitting directly flush with the ceiling, it is suspended with a small stem leaving a gap between the ceiling and the fixture.
How do You Know What Size Flush Mount/Semi Flush Mount to Buy
Determining what size light fixture to buy can be tricky. Luckily choosing flush mount and semi-flush mounts can be a little easier because you don’t typically have to worry about your ceiling height. These light fixtures are perfect for lower ceiling heights, but also provide great general lighting for any space.
Add the width of your room and length of your room together. Convert that number to inches and that is the general width that will work for your space. For example, if you have a bedroom that is 10 feet wide by 12 feet long you will be looking for a light that is aprox 22 inches wide.
