Buy Your Next Light Fixture at Lumens Today! Light fixtures are often considered the jewelry of the home and can make or break the overall aesthetic. Why choose the same old typical light fixture when you can choose something unique, that you really love?

Lighting specialty stores are generally far and few between in most towns. Many shoppers are limited to the small and often unimpressive lighting selections found at the big box hardware stores. What customers donít know is that thousands of unique and beautiful lighting fixtures are available with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Lamps Clinic

LAMPS CLINIC Visit Site

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind, custom lighting product, Lamps Clinic may be the retailer for you. In business since 1993, Lamps Clinic operates out of its showroom location in San Marino, CA. Their claim to fame is the ability to create unique lighting for virtually any occasion; one special creation was a table lamp fashioned from a wedding champagne bottle.

Their overall product selection is sparse; they currently carry only 20 brands of lighting, and familiar manufacturers are not included in their inventory. If you are searching for a particular item, make sure to put your search string in quotation marks; we found that on a search of ceiling fan (without quotes), the first three-to-four pages didn't return a single ceiling fan even though Lamps Clinic did have them available.

Shipping costs may also be high: there are no posted shipping cost policies posted on the site, and while many mid-range items are listed as having free shipping, we found that the cost of ground shipping for a $15.99 light bulb was a staggering $15!

Lamps Clinic has a somewhat limited return period of 14 days, and they may charge a restocking fee of 10-20% on any merchandise returned. Be aware that if you are trying to contact Lamps Clinic's customer service, their toll-free number appears to be routed to an automated/computerized answering service that then routes you to the store itself.

While we are intrigued by Lamps Clinic's custom products, its overall lack of selection and potentially high shipping costs earn it a 2.5 star rating overall.

Elite Fixtures

ELITE FIXTURES Visit Site

Elite Fixtures offers 93 brands of light fixtures, along with other home items such as water coolers, furniture, and decor. At the time of our review, their site had a "$10 off any order" pop-up on the main page, which would be attractive to many new customers.

Their website is easy to use, and their search function is useful and allows you to sort your results by a number of criteria on the left-hand side of the page (brand, price, and so forth).

Elite Fixtures stands out from most other online lighting retailers with no restocking fee on returns (compared with fees of up to 40% charged by competitors!) in a 30-day period. However, the shipping policy and fees posted on Elite Fixtures' website were contradictory.

In one place, they state that shipping is free on orders over $39 that are all going to one address; in another location, it states that any order under $100 is charged a flat shipping and handling fee. What was more disconcerting was that when we called their toll-free customer service number to request clarification, both of our calls were disconnected on their end, with a pre-recorded "Goodbye" message prior to the calls' termination.

Because of this, we can only give Elite Fixtures a two-star rating, though it would easily improve with better connection to their customer service department and clarification of their shipping fees.

Continued from above

Literally thousands of light fixtures are available from hundreds of companies and unfortunately most of us will only see a tiny fraction. However, shopping online greatly opens the doors to the world of light fixture options. Online companies are able to provide a significantly larger selection in the thousands from a huge selection of manufacturers.

Prices of light fixtures are often more competitive than those found local as these online companies have smaller overhead costs.Itís important to know what to look for when shopping online for light fixtures. Before you make the move to purchase a light fixture, you should consider the following:

  • Selection. How large of a selection of lighting fixtures can you expect to find at each store?
  • Pricing. How do the prices compare to other online retailers? Is the shipping affordable?
  • Return Policy. In the event you're not satisfied with your purchase, does the company enable you to return the light fixture? Will you encounter a restocking fee?
  • Customer Service. Are their representatives available to assist with questions and how satisfied have previous customers been while shopping at each company?
