In this post: Lighting can make a huge difference to the character of a room. If you’re looking for affordable French farmhouse lighting, check out this complete guide.⇒
One of the fastest ways to make an impression in a room is by adding a fabulous chandelier!
Just picture one of your rooms that you’d love to update and imagine how different it would look by adding wonderful lighting. Not only would it change the ambiance of the room but the piece itself can make quite a bold statement. This is particularly so with large chandeliers, but even lamps and wall sconces can have a similar impact.
I often walk around my home and think exactly this. Despite the fact that I have recessed overhead lighting in most of my rooms (and enjoy that kind of lighting from a functional standpoint), I prefer each of my rooms to have some kind of light fixtures with French farmhouse style. The fixtures themselves can be intrinsically beautiful and the character they add to a room can make all the difference.
But lighting, as we know, can cost a fortune. I’ve put together this shopping guide to share with you some of my favorite resources for affordable and stylish French farmhouse lighting. I’ve broken it down into 4 categories, including chandeliers, sconces, lamps and pendant lights. We all have our own idea of what constitutes affordable, so I’ve tried to keep most of the items under $500, with plenty of options under $300, as well. There may be one or two special pieces in each category that are a bit higher, but the majority are in the lower range.

French Farmhouse Chandelier Lighting
If you really want to add a WOW factor to any room, you can’t beat the impact of a gorgeous chandelier. Sure they can be pricey, but if you know where to look, you can find something beautiful that’s not crazy expensive. Here are some of my favorite options.
French Farmhouse Wall Sconces
I’ve always been a huge fan of sconces for both the mood lighting they offer, as well as their decorative benefit. They are like the jewelry in a room and look awesome flanking a mirror, a painting, or a cluster of varied wall hangings. In the right spot, they can even work alone, so don’t think you always need a pair.
French Farmhouse Lamps
Lamps can be the quintessential accessory in a space and are sometimes all you need on an end table or desk. In pairs on a console table they can offer symmetry and atmosphere, but they’re also great for certain tasks around the home.
French Farmhouse Pendant Lights
Over an island or counter or in fact anywhere you want a focal point, pendant lights look great in a group while they shed light on the area of focus. Use them over a bar or even over a kitchen table.
