7 Best Sources for Affordable Lighting

Lighting is an essential element in designing any space. A well lit room is warm, cozy and inviting. Whereas bad or not enough lighting can make a room look dull and gloomy. Apart from Ikea which always stocks some really cool and super affordable electrical's (starting at $10!!), there are some really cool stores you can turn to for affordable and stylish electrical needs.

I've compiled a list of stores which will solve all your lighting worries :). Lets check them out!

1. Schoolhouse Electric and Supply Co.

I love the classic, no-fuss style of Schoolhouse Electric. A bit retro and a tad bit industrial makes it a perfect choice for various decor styles.

On my wishlist is their Ion C Series (above) available for $119.

2. Urban Outfitters

This fun and hip clothing brand is definitely adding tons of good stuff to their 'Apartment' section. Apart from quirky decor, they have a great collection of light fixtures from whimsical to modern. All at a very affordable price range.

My heart is set on their Cher Pendent (above) for $179. Perfect to pump up any corner of the home.

3. Cost Plus World Market

One of my favorite stores for absolutely anything related to decor, World Market stocks some gorgeous statement lighting for the home.

I love the Lotus pendant for entry statement light. And the globe light would be a perfect addition to either a fun library or kids room :).

4. Dot & Bo

This online store always stocks beautiful eclectic pieces, both in furniture and lighting.

My favorite from them is this bohemian and happy bead pendant in turquoise shown above.

5. The Urban Electric Co

Although its a bit of a splurge, The Urban Electric Co sells a stunning collection of light fixtures. If you don't intend to change the fixture every few years, this might be a good long term style investment.

6. Overstock

An absolute must check source before you zero down on any lighting. Overstock is a great place to get amazing deals for similar looking high end store (RH/ PB) items.

1.    2.    3.

My current favorite is this gold and white metal pendant available for $180.

7.  Land of Nod

Although Land of Nod is primarily known for children's furniture and accessories, I love hunting through their online store for funky cool baskets and eye catching lamps.
