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 Home Style

ELITE HOME STYLE Visit Site

Elite Home Style is an online retailer specializing in home decor. We were unable to find many products related to lighting; familiar brands like Hunter were not available, the chandelier page had zero items listed, and many of the pages that did have products were missing images. There were only 12 pendant fixtures and 18 table lamps, most without images. Wall sconces fared best, with 35 total products, and all with images.

We found it difficult to search for items by brand or feature on the main lighting page; there didn't appear to be a search box there, only product categories with images.

Elite Home Style does offer free shipping on orders of at least $100 within the lower 48 United States. They also do not charge sales tax on any orders outside of New Jersey.

Their 14-day return period is shorter than many other retailers who offer a 30-day timeframe, and where Elite Home Style really falls short in comparison with the rest of the market is with their restocking fee: a whopping 35% charged on all returns.

Because of their hefty restocking fees, very limited product selection, and inefficient search capabilities, we can only give Elite Home Style a 1.5-star rating.

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?
