Exterior flush to ceiling, or “flush mounts” as they are commonly called, are typically installed to provide lighting under outdoor protected overhangs. Mounted directly to the ceiling, they offer superior wind resistance over hanging style outdoor fixtures. Exterior flush mounts are available in a variety of styles and finishes, with a myriad of glass choices. Many of the outdoor flush to ceiling lighting fixtures available on SearchLighting.Com have complementary wall mounts, post mounts, hanging fixtures and landscape lighting. Leading real estate publications often report that coordinated exterior lighting significantly adds to “curb appeal”, thereby increasing the marketability of your residence. Proper exterior lighting can also be a deterrent to crime. Studies have shown that proper exterior lighting is a factor in reducing crime. The crime prevention officer at your local police department can provide valuable assistance in determining how to use exterior lighting to reduce crime.
