In my humble opinion, brass fixtures are both the most exciting thing to shop for (they’re SOOOO pretty) and the most frustrating (if you’re on any kind of budget). They can be pretty pricey! But I have to say I don’t always think that is a bad thing. Light fixtures are one of those categories in home decor where you really get what you pay for, so I consider them worth saving up for and sacrificing other things for. As I’ve been hunting for the perfect fixtures for our new home, I’ve often chosen less expensive or DIY solutions on other items to be able to afford a fixture because I think they will be the highlight of a room and something we will appreciate for years to come. It’s also worth mentioning that many of these companies are producing products that are handmade in the USA.
Today I am here to share beautiful designs at any price range, starting at under $100. Can I get an amen?
OK…let’s get started!
Truth be told, I had to cut myself off in this price range because there are a lot of amazing fixtures and I could have found about fifty more. Haha! Can we all just ooh and awe in unison? (Thanks—I needed that…)
Just one more thing! Light bulbs. No matter how inexpensive or super expensive your fixture is, cool light bulbs will make it look better and the wrong ones can really cheapen the look. They have a decent selection of Edison-style bulbs at places like Home Depot or Lowes. But for really unique bulbs, my go-to is Schoolhouse Electric and Rejuvenation. *Image above via Schoolhouse Electric.
