The light you've chosen appears to have a transformer which will require some additional space. You might try these https://www.amazon.com/SleekLighting-Inches-Dimmable-Light-Silver/dp/B07RT1WSCL/ref=mp_s_a_1_17?keywords=led+disk+light+3000k&qid=1561007470&s=gateway&sprefix=Led+disk+&sr=8-17
They are flush mount and the color is warm white 3000k. I haven't used them, but I have used this 12v variety with great success. https://www.amazon.com/acegoo-Recessed-Ceiling-Aluminum-Downlights/dp/B012ZOI3ZW/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?keywords=acegoo&qid=1561007127&s=gateway&sprefix=Acegoo&sr=8-2&th=1&psc=1
If you like an industrial look, you could use an exposed bulb on a cord that's run up the wall. Cords come in lots of colors and you can attach the bulb to the ceiling as high or low as you want it.
I have used the flush mount LED recessed lights to replace lots of lights in hallways, closets and even in our kitchen. We have bought ours at Loews 2 for $35
In your case you would only need room enough for your wiring and a low profile box .
I recommend speaking with an electrician.
I have used LEDs and cans from Lowes and love them. You'll want to measure your depth and any cans before you purchase. If you go the transformer route, you'll need to put it someplace accessible and with a proper enclosure - possibly a furnace /utility room. Then you could make the 120V portion meet proper code. I'm doing something similar in my attic with a transformer on a timer, with 12V surface mount LEDs going on my soffit. As an electrician before you proceed with anything out of the ordinary.
We have exposed beams in our house too and no ceiling lights when we moved in. We had an electrician run a new line that came out of a nearby wall that ran through wire molding to a junction box. If we were to do that today we would use one of the smaller pancake pans like this one - https://amzn.to/2xIQBEi Once you add a ceiling light to it and paint the wire molding the same color as the ceiling no one will ever see it. If the ceiling is wood you might be able to paint it a color similar to the ceiling before installing it. Good luck, I hate not having ceiling lights in rooms.
