If you are looking for new lighting, I’ve got 10 affordable farmhouse style lights that you’ll love! There is something for every budget. New lighting changes the look of a room – it’s a great way to update without drastic changes.
The farmhouse style chandeliers have something for everyone. Fancy, rustic, simple, and modern farmhouse – you’re sure to find a style you love.
I love changing the lighting in a room. It makes a big difference without a ton of work or money.
However, even my 9-year-old son rolls his eyes when I come home announcing I’ve found the perfect chandelier.
Lucky for me, my hubs did electrical work in the past, but I managed to find one that he couldn’t work his magic on. Heartbreaker because I scored it for $30 at an antique store.
We even took it to a lighting shop and had one of the arms professionally repaired, but no go. It continues to short out bulbs and clearly, there is something going on which could lead to a fire hazard.
I don’t care how cheap it is, it’s not worth a fire hazard.
Which brings me to my current dilemma. I need a light with at least 5 bulbs, but it can’t be too big. It’s going over our breakfast table which is only 42 inches in diameter.
If you’re curious, the general rule is to find one that is 12 inches smaller than the table – so for my 42″ table, I need to stick with around a 30″ chandelier.
However, I don’t like general rules. For this space, we have always had one smaller than 30″ and I like it that way. The smaller ones look just fine here, and the biggest criteria are it has to be affordable.
That’s the thing with decorating rules – go with what works for you.
Me and the hubs agreed that we should just buy new this time instead of pushing the old wire luck again. During my search, I’ve rounded up 10 affordable farmhouse style lights.

I would personally take any one of these! Maybe I can decide on one soon. That seems to be the hardest part! And who knows, I may still come across that perfect vintage chandelier. You know, the one that’s not an electrical nightmare.
Until then, one of these farmhouse-style lights might just work!
