The other day my sister explained to me that the floor lamp in her bedroom had stopped working and that she was having a hard time deciding how to replace it. She asked for my help in tracking down some really inexpensive options.
This was not easy. I have expensive tastes. Originally she asked for something around $40 but said they’d be willing to go up to $80 if necessary, but absolutely no higher. So when I found lovely $120 lamps that I knew were perfect for her style, I had to pass them on by. Painful!
If you need a floor lamp for really dirt cheap, online shopping may not be your best bet. Check out local thrift stores as well as mega-stores like Target where you can find something (not very attractive) for as low as $13. Target also has more attractive options in the $50 range. Keep in mind that when you’re shopping at these low prices, you’re likely going to sacrifice some quality. I personally have two floor lamps that I couldn’t have paid over $25 for… and I hate them. So even if money is really tight, it might be worth it to bump the budget up even just to $50 or so.
Four of the below options are from IKEA. They’re pretty much the go-to for really cheap stuff that doesn’t look like really cheap stuff. I own the table lamp version of the first lamp pictured, the ALÄNG, and I love it!

Note that these prices are rounded and subject to change. A lot of these lamps are only available in stores or currently out of stock. Sorry about that. Like I said above, online shopping may not be your best bet when shopping in this low price bracket for floor lamps. Shopping in person may also give you a chance to physically handle a lamp before purchasing, which can give you a good idea of its quality. Feel free to add in the comments your own inexpensive floor lamp finds!Like This Post
