It's no secret around here: We love IKEA. From the contemporary furniture to the eye-popping art prints, we can literally spend days walking around the big box retailer. We also love the fact that when it comes to renovations, a trip to IKEA won't hurt your bottom line.

If you're in the process of updating your bathroom (or simply want to refresh it here and there), you can't go wrong with IKEA bathroom lighting ideas. Sometimes, fixtures can get pricey in a hurry. As on-trend and lovely as they are, you can find something equally cool and modern from the Scandinavian brand.

Here are eight options that will brighten up your bath and inject it with budget-friendly style.

1. IKEA Östanå LED Cabinet/Wall Light, $39.99

Whether you need to provide extra illumination for a cabinet, or you're looking for bathroom lighting ideas that are sleek and minimal, this IKEA wall light has you covered.

2. IKEA Svallis LED Wall Lamp, $29.99

We think this convenient little fixture looks like a half-moon as it glows on a bathroom wall. Plus, it's dimmable, so you can up the brightness in the morning and dim the lighting in the evening.

3. IKEA Östanå Wall Lamp, $19.99

These oh-so-modern wall sconces look a lot more expensive than they really are. At the low, low price of $19.99, you can outfit your mirror with plenty of light.

4. IKEA Ledsjö LED Wall Lamp, $49.99

IKEA bathroom lighting ideas always tend to look right-this-minute, but this wall sconce has a bit of a retro flair. Pretend you're a movie star from back in the day, and install a set of these vanity lights in your sanctuary, perfect for putting on makeup and feeling glamorous.

5. IKEA Frihult Wall Lamp, $29.99

For a wall lamp that will look timeless for years to come (and is nice to your budget), look no further than this beauty. Place these fixtures around your bathroom wherever you can use more light.

6. IKEA Östanå Ceiling/Wall Lamp, $19.99

It's not often that we come across a ceiling light that can also be a wall sconce, but this option from IKEA can easily play double duty. Plus, we love its effortless, current look.

7. IKEA Södersvik LED Wall Lamp, $59.99

Maybe you're into fun bathroom lighting ideas. In this case, we recommend a bubbly IKEA wall lamp that can be hung alongside a mirror. The bonus is that it's dimmable, making it handy and artsy at the same time.

8. IKEA Frihult Ceiling Lamp, $24.99

A globe-style bulb and brass is always a classic combination for a ceiling light. But instead of breaking the bank, opt for something at IKEA for a lot less, like this traditional silhouette that will go nicely in your bathroom.
