It seems farmhouse style is hanging around for quite a while and I love it. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and certainly not everyone lives in a rustic farmhouse. However, I believe you can decorate your own home for you. Even if you live in a builder grade house like me, it’s not hard to inject some of you own personality, no matter what style you love. I’ve been searching for some perfect farmhouse light fixtures for a sweet friend and thought I’d share them with you!
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to add some character to your home. And it’s definitely not feasible to go changing out every single fixture at once. But lighting can make a statement and completely change the look of a room (second behind paint).
I searched for several different styles – chandeliers, pendants, sconces, and flush mounts. And let me tell you – the options are endless! It was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just 22! Click on any pic for all the details
22 Gorgeous Farmhouse Light Fixtures
One of the aspects of “farmhouse style” that I love so much is that there are no hard and fast rules. Some people like the super old, authentic, and chippy look, others like a more modern farmhouse style, and others lean towards a more rustic look. It doesn’t matter as long as YOU love it.
Another option is to check the thrift stores! Often you can find something great that might just need a little makeover. Don’t overlook it if it looks dated, but not in the cool vintage dated way. Light fixtures are easy to spray paint and completely change the look. Tape off all the sockets first and spray away. Hint – if you’re spray painting a chandelier, string it up with wire through a tall ladder. This allows you get the spray paint all the way around.
Lamps are easy to rewire if you know what you’re doing. Chandeliers can be trickier. Just make positive it’s safe before you wire it up. And make sure you are skilled at replacing a fixture or get a professional to help if necessary. Any frayed cords or damaged areas have to be addressed before you can use it. And sometimes it still won’t work – I learned this from a previous thrifted chandelier I bought. I had two of the arms rewired, but it was never right. Bulbs flickered constantly or burned out. It was clear it was going to be too costly to get the entire thing rewired so we ended up replacing it.
There are so many affordable and quality choices for adding some farmhouse light fixtures to your house. Amazon, Home Depot, Lowes, Wayfair – these are just a few of the places that have a large variety at great prices. Happy shopping!
