Outfitting your farmhouse bedroom is half the fun — after all, the perfect combination of decor and furniture will convince your brain you've woken up in the countryside each morning, even if you live in the city. But when it comes to bedroom lighting, the options can seem too numerous to handle. Do you want to go simple or over-the-top? Are you a chandelier kind of person, or do you live in a hot climate, necessitating a ceiling fan? These modern farmhouse bedroom lighting ideas are sure to inspire the perfect pick for you:
1. Hang a vintage-inspired chandelier
Few decor choices feel so delightfully vintage-farmhouse than a crystal chandelier. When surrounded by farmhouse style — like in this French cottage master bedroom from Seeking Lavender Lane — chandeliers feel elegant, not glitzy. Pair with muted wallpaper to further tone down the glamour.
2. Choose a different European inspiration
3. Go for a simple pattern or texture
Sometimes, farmhouse bedroom decor can feel a little overwhelming with all that wood and large-scale furniture. Chaney from Mix & Match Design chose a pared-down table lamp that still fits the countryside theme — the bedside herringbone table lamp adds texture without overwhelming the senses.
4. Stay subdued
Love the look of a crystal chandelier but lack ceiling height? A flush-mount option, like a faceted crystal light, adds just a hint of glam. Against the backdrop of a whitewashed bedroom, like in Love Grows Wild's farmhouse bedroom refresh, this nod to elegance perfects the airy space.
5. Use sconces as individual lamps
Kids clamoring for their own farmhouse bedroom? Switch up your sconces by hanging them above the bed, not the nightstand, like in this cottage-inspired bedroom from blogger Sarah Joy. The accordion-style schoolhouse sconces complete the farmhouse look with rustic, industrial aplomb.
