One of the most impactful yet often overlooked aspects of home decor is lighting. Updating your light fixtures can instantly transform a space without breaking the bank. Today, we’re focusing on hallway ceiling lights, showcasing a range of stylish options that won’t exceed $100. Let’s brighten up those hallways!

When it comes to home improvement projects, upgrading your lighting should be at the top of the list. This update can make a huge impact in any space without a huge cost! The hallway is often a neglected area in terms of decor, but the right ceiling lights can add character and functionality to this transitional space. Say goodbye to those outdated builder-grade glass dome lights and hello to more modern, affordable options!

Hallway Light Fixtures

I’m not sure why the basic glass dome light was the go to for all new homes, but if you are as tired of them as I am, I have found several other lighting options for our hallways that I love. There are so many great options and styles, and they are all very affordable! The first light shown below belongs to the same collection that we used for all of our kitchen lighting (see below). Lighting collections are a great way to have a consistent look through the home if you are struggling to pick out multiple light fixtures.

These are my top 6 flush mount ceiling lights and semi-flush mount ceiling lights that are perfect for any hallway.

If you’re struggling to create a cohesive look throughout your home, consider opting for lighting collections. These sets offer consistency in design while allowing you to mix and match fixtures for different spaces.

Benefits of Lighting Collections

  • Consistent Style: Achieve a harmonious look by choosing lights from the same collection.
  • Ease of Selection: Simplify your shopping experience with pre-coordinated designs.
  • Variety in Design: While maintaining consistency, collections often offer a range of styles to suit different rooms.

These are the light fixtures we chose for our home and they make such a difference! Several stores have lighting collections which gives you an easy option for finding multiple lights that look great together. We chose three pieces for our kitchen from a Home Depot Collection by Hampton Bay. I love the consistency the look provides while adding a variety in the design! These are also a great option if you are looking for rustic ceiling lights with a modern feel. They are a brushed metal.

Bonus: Easy and Inexpensive Lighting Projects

Lighting Update Tip #1: If your glass domes or pendants have a tone or color on them, then you might be able to update them simply by using paint remover! The first photo shows the glass shades on our foyer chandelier. We decided we didn’t want the brown paint look anymore, so we got out the paint remover! Try a small sample area first to see if removing the tone on the glass shade will work. You should immediately see the color coming off and the white frosted glass underneath. This project is simple and can really change the look of the glass pendants or shades for a simple inexpensive update.

Light Update Tip #2: The glass shade in our small foyer area had a gold & brown speckled glaze and we needed an easy change. The base of the light was still in nice shape so we decided to keep it and look for a new glass dome. I found this one at Menards for $8! It was the drum shape I wanted and we could use the fastener from the black base to make it work! Easy lighting updates for minimal cost!
