Affordable Pendant Lights for Modern Farmhouses
We recently shared on our Instagram that Kyle is making some huge life changes and has made the leap to begin finishing the renovation of his family barn. His parents have been very gracious in listening to our design advice and we are starting to pick out selections for cabinets, tiles, and wall treatments to turn it into a space the entire family will use for years to come.
Lighting is one of the easiest ways to give a room personality and make a big visual impact. We've literally spent hours scouring stores and websites to find the perfect pendant lights, chandeliers, and sconces. We thought it could be beneficial for anyone else who is building a modern farmhouse, working on a renovation, or just wants to give their space an update.
Lighting is one of the elements we instantly notice when we walk into a space and one of the most affordable ways to add trend elements into your home designs. For the barn we will be selecting a matte black pendant light that perfectly fits the vibe. For our home, we'll probably choose something with an industrial feel.
We were happily surprised to see that big box stores like Home Depot are stepping up their game with their lighting and Amazon has a thousands of options too with great reviews (to be honest, a bit overwhelming!). We found some amazing budget conscious styles and can't wait to see how the lights we choose for the barn (and eventually our home) come together!

We love the look of a trio of mini-pendant lights above a kitchen island or bar area. The larger-scale pendant lights make a dramatic (and stylish!) impact in an entryway or stairwell. The sputnik style mid-century lights make an amazing statement when paired with modern pieces. I'm pretty sure we've never thought more about lights in our entire life, but we're perfectly okay with it! We're so excited to be working on this project and hope to have some house updates VERY soon!
