Best Flush, Semi-Flush, Pendants and Exterior Lights Under $200

It's pretty easy to buy cheap lighting. It just doesn't hang straight or has poor sockets and poor quality glass. It is much harder to find decent lights under $200. Below are my favorite lights under $200 by category from respected manufacturers.

Ceiling Fixtures - Flush and Semi Flush Mounts

Unlike appliances, lighting is all about personal style with tons of options. The Quoizel and Framburg are semi-flush mounts, which will light the ceiling as well the space below.

I really like Northeast Lantern, it is manufactured in New Hampshire and is warrantied for life...and we have the toughest weather in New England. The Seafarer is over $200, but it is a cool nautical piece.

Interior Single Wall Sconces

Best lighting category under $200 is sconces. Hudson Valley, Visual Comfort and Tech Lighting are all really solid and stylish manufacturers.

Bath Brackets

Bathroom sconces can be purchased in single, double or triple. The best way to illuminate is with one on either side. This will cross-illuminate your face for shaving or make up. The triple is placed over the mirror.

Pendants have replaced chandeliers as the decorative light of choice, especially over islands  and larger spaces. You can spread out two or three for a much more appealing visual. Many of our best selling lights are under $200. Low voltage like the Tech piece tends to be more, because of the additional 12 volt transformer.
