10 Hallway Lights under $100
Most people do some upgrades or small renovations to get their house ready to sell. Some homeowners do amazing renovations to their house in order to get top dollar for their home. Homeowners do extensive basement renovations, bathroom transformation, complete kitchen renovations and most home owners nowadays totally renew their home with freshly painted walls throughout their house.
But most people stop at one place where their renovation dollars can have a HUGE return on their investment for a small amount of money spent – the hallway lights. Most people keep their dated hallway lights or their cheap basic boring builder lights instead of upgrading to trendier look. Keeping your original lighting when you’ve done renovations is like buying an expensive Yves Saint Laurent evening dress and wearing an old piece of jewellery that you’ve had for years to show it off.
Hallway lights are such an inexpensive way to transform your hallway. Here are 10 hallway lights that are under $100 each that will transform your hallway into a stunning walkway.

For under $20 per light, the pewter clip marble glass flushmount is an inexpensive upgrade from utility builder lights.

It blends into the hallway in a subtle but elegant way. It’s a good standby for those that are on tight budgets. $20. Home Depot
Surprisingly, the big box stores have trendy lighting that is affordable even after completing all those renovations. Look online to see their extensive selection. Ordering online takes a few days for delivery so you need to factor that in to your timeline when getting your house ready to list.
I’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I’m currently living in my 8th “fixer upper.” Sign up to receive my e-mails of how to make your home stunning, how to sell your house for top dollar AND how to become financially independent one fixer upper at a time!
