My architect has suggested that I use a flush mount ceiling projector housing for a more sophisticated look. Can you explain to me how your round ceiling flange is finished out? It looks so big and bulky!
The Phantom Lighting float finish housing does have a large flange at first glance. However, the outer flange is designed to overlap the sheetrock and provide a solid foundation for the painter to finish.
When you purchase a flush mount projector housing from a Phantom Lighting distributor you get illustrated floating instructions in both English and Spanish to make the process easy and understandable. The final product is basically up to the painter. If he does a good job, than everybody is happy, including your architect.
For new construction applications, we also provide a handy rough-in ring that can be nailed to the ceiling rafters prior to sheetrock. Once the sheetrock is installed, the housing is inserted into the opening by your electrician and finished out during the floating process by the drywall contractor.
I have to agree with your architect about keeping the ceiling clean. One of the magical properties of using an optical framing projector is hiding the light source.
