Don’t let a low ceiling stop you from adding fabulous lighting into your home. These light fixtures for low ceilings are perfect for mobile homes.
Most mobile homes have 7-foot ceilings. Even with vaulted ceilings in doublewides, you still usually only have a 9 ft ceiling at the highest point. Because of our lower ceilings in mobile homes, our options for decorative farmhouse light fixtures for low ceilings can be a little limited.
That’s why we’ve searched the web to find 15 stunning and affordable farmhouse style light fixtures for low ceilings along with a couple of ceiling fans.
I personally dream of high ceilings with giant chandeliers everywhere! If it were up to me, I would even have a chandelier in my laundry room. Unfortunately, I don’t have high ceilings in my 1997 Clayton double wide and I have had to choose fixtures that work with my home and it’s 7.5 ft ceilings. Which is totally okay!
The Gaines Made Farmhouse Cool
I think we can all agree the giant farmhouse chandeliers used by Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper are swoon-worthy.
Think Outside the Box
Sometimes it’s fun when things aren’t as ideal as we hope they would be. Real homes aren’t as “perfect” as the ones we see on Instagram. This forces us to get creative and think outside the box.
Oftentimes when this happens, I end up extremely pleased with the outcome because it has a personal touch and isn’t exactly like anything I’ve seen on Instagram.
When designing a room, we often want to combine a few different styles to represent us and our personal style.
For me, I usually lean toward a little modern farmhouse with plenty of vintage elements (and a little eclectic cottage style too). Think about some words that describe your style and the style you want to represent in your home.

Light Fixtures Make a Strong Statement
Light fixtures can make a strong statement. Adding accessories and accent pieces can pull the look together perfectly.
For example, in my dining room, I’ve gone with a simple, clean, modern farmhouse style pendant light. Then, I layered in some mismatched collections which provide that casual eclectic cottage vibe I also love.

Vaulted Ceiling with Fan in Double Wide
Below is a basic fan from Home Depot that we painted black and changed the globes to a vintage type glass also found at home depot. Work with what you have!
As you all know, mobile homes aren’t exactly known for their stunning light fixtures. They typically come with cheaper-than-builder-grade plastic fixtures. Most that I’ve seen is gold, though I know the newer homes have more contemporary styles.
Downlights, Canister, and Track Lighting
It used to be an obstacle to installing downlights, canister lights, or track lights in mobile homes with low ceilings. Thankfully, that has changed.
Downlights may not be considered ‘farmhouse’ but they are a perfect companion to the style. For bathrooms and kitchens, you’ll want what is considered ‘dust tight’ like the IP65 fire-rated downlights here.
Downlights can provide plenty of task lighting for cooking or putting on makeup while your more decorative fixtures act as eye candy. Space is limited in a mobile home so think about installing affordable ceiling fans with lights to save precious space on a fan that has to sit on the floor.
Changing out these light fixtures is a super-easy way to make a big impact on your home’s style. Learn how to replace your light fixture here.
15 Stunning Farmhouse Light Fixtures for Low Ceilings
I’ve put together a list of some stunning farmhouse light fixtures for low ceilings. Most are semi-flush mounts along with a few small-ish chandeliers. The chandeliers can work over your dining table where you won’t need head clearance or in a living room with a vaulted ceiling.
I’ve also included a couple of lovely ceiling fans at the end. I originally didn’t plan to include fans in this list, but I came across these and just loved them! As you see above, I have a fan in my living room currently. For those of us living in the South, they are really nice to have.
Here’s my list of low ceiling – high style lighting. Any of these will work beautifully in your mobile home:

LOVE this option as well. The 52” Pankey 5 Blade Ceiling Fan is available at Wayfair for $135 here.
Of course, there are many more options out there. Just search for flush or semi-flush lighting on your favorite store’s site. Or search for a “mini chandelier.” I tried to include affordable options. As for me, my style is ever-evolving and I may not want to keep the same light forever so I don’t like to spend a fortune.
Best Sources for Light Fixtures for Low Ceilings
If you’re in the market for some new lighting, some of my favorite resources for trendy fixtures at decent prices are:
Additionally, the company Schoolhouse Electric has some extraordinarily beautiful vintage style fixture but they are a little on the pricey side in my opinion so I haven’t made a purchase from them yet. Maybe for a birthday or anniversary gift from the husband?
Another fun idea is to look for old wire baskets (like in my hallway) or old warehouse pendants at flea markets. See 63 Affordable DIY Lighting Projects here.
Be Unique and Creative!
The last thing I want to add is don’t be afraid to go bold with your light fixture! Throw all the rules out the window, with the exception of needing to be able to walk under the light or see each other across the table, of course! Keeping those things in mind, don’t be afraid of using an oversized, unique, or statement fixture where you can.
Lighting is a great design element and an easy way to add high style to your mobile home even with low ceilings. See our other favorite affordable decorating hacks for mobile homes.

The hardest thing about mobile homes is how to replace light fixtures without high cost.
And can you tell us how to paint our walls? We jyst bought a 2012 and it has VOG walls. Heard horror stories on painting them help!
I sure can! I wrote an article about painting VOG panels here. The light fixtures are over my head (literally and figuratively….lol), I’m a plumber’s helper and we’re scared of electricity! I’ve been trying to find an electrician that could help write articles but haven’t had any luck. Best of luck!
