It has been awhile since I’ve shared recent saves from Amazon, but as I’ve been updating my resource page, I thought it was time for an official blog roundup. There are some beautiful, budget-friendly fixtures floating around that may be a good fit for one of your future projects. Click through to see 20 of my favorite classic & affordable light fixtures from Amazon. Hopefully this post will save you a little time and money. You know I’m all about mixing high & low! I’m sharing some timeless options that won’t go out of style and won’t break the bank.
I can say with complete confidence that the following fixtures won’t be going out of style. Though affordable, these classic fixtures have timeless shapes, finishes, and great reviews! From a designer’s point of view, I know I’d love any one of these for years to come. I’m all about finding items that look like they cost more than they actually do, or finding wiggle room in the project budget.

My biggest piece of advice when shopping for budget lighting is to pay close attention to the finish. The finish can really make a light fixture look cheap. I usually stay away from brass finishes (unless there are good images or reviews) because that is the most difficult finish to achieve, in terms of a high-end look. Black, bronze, or polished nickel finishes are usually a safer bet and look universally beautiful- no matter the price tag.
Another thing I analyze when sticking to budget fixtures is the specifications. Can a fixture be dimmed? Is it hardwired? What type of glass is the shade, or what is it made of? In addition to aesthetics, this information can help us determine the overall quality. You’d be surprised how many budget fixtures are similar to their designer counterparts in terms of material use. You have to dig for the good ones and have a great eye to spot the classic design options, but not all inexpensive light fixtures look cheap. I hope this post helped to prove that! You can certainly achieve designer style on a budget.
