There are tons of gorgeous lighting options out there but if you’ve got a house to fill, it quickly uses up your budget.$$$ Ouch! And it soon drastically limits your lighting choices. Eek! We both know that most flush mount lights are pretty heinous. Really!... is there any worse lighting than the dreaded “boob” lights? We think not. It’s time to get that changed. Yay!
So let’s start with your entryway. In your home’s entryway, guests see your home for the first time. So let's set the mood right?!?!?. Keeping it casual will always make your guest feel welcome instead of the high-end crystal chandeliers that they may even be scared to walk under.Yikes! Remember, it’s the very first impression of your home and a fixture that’s seen not only in the entryway but often from the dining room and living room.
This EASY to live with RUSTIC cage light offers good illumination with (3) 60 watt bulbs and is a cinch to install.
Then lets address the kitchen. One of the places in the home where you need the most lights. Here's our #1 choice for budget friendly lighting that will give you tons of illumination with its 4 bulbs.
Offering a soft white distressed finish, it blends in nicely with both new or existing decors. Not overpowering the room, or being too ornate that one tires of it quickly, but just the right amount of interest. Especially since the pierced metal allows the light to peek through. Also noted, you can use LED bulbs, you will then have a very energy efficient light! Woohoo!
Our biggest tip in choosing a flush mount light when you don’t have a lot of money to spend is to go with a clean, simple design. Anything with an elaborate design that’s under $100 is going to look cheap but simple, inexpensive fixtures can be beautiful. Something simple like this no-frills flush mount enamel light is a great choice – it’s inexpensive but streamlined and chic and has lots of great reviews. And it’s available in two different finishes including antique black and bronze:
For smaller spaces in your home like hallways, laundry rooms, and pantries, we love this choice. It even comes with the cool Edison bulb. (under $80!) Perfect if you love a more classic or farmhouse feel:
But if you want to splurge, you can’t go wrong with this original windmill light fixture. Outstanding! Here's the latest review from Chelsea...I absolutely love this light! Looks just like the picture, and fits perfectly in my son's John Deere/Farm themed bedroom! Thank you so much! I would recommend it to anyone! ❤
