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.

Wayfair

WAYFAIR

Visit Site

Wayfair has become very well-known in the home goods market; with its slogan of "a zillion things home" you would be right to expect that they are likely to carry just about anything you could dream of wanting for your house, lighting and much more.

Their search feature is very robust; items can be filtered by price and brand, among other criteria, and your results can be sorted by customer ratings, recommendation likelihood, or, once again, by price. Wayfair offers a much smaller selection of lighting brands at only seven total. However, their prices are competitive when comparing items across retailers.

Wayfair really hopes to gain your business with a wide variety of customer-pleasing features: free shipping on orders over $49 and a flat fee of $4.99 on all other orders, free shopping advice from renovation experts at their toll-free number, two-day delivery on nearly a half-million items in stock, 3% of your purchase price back in their automatic (free) rewards program, and a 30-day return policy through their self-service return center.

While all of these advantages make Wayfair very attractive, we can only give them a three-star rating because of the high number of customer complaints. While they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for their resolution of such complaints filed, many consumer reviews on the BBB site describe dissatisfaction with Wayfair's product quality, slow or inaccurate delivery, and negative interactions with customer service representatives. More than 50% of customers surveyed by the BBB would not recommend Wayfair.

However, we know that it is rare for consumers to contact the BBB when they are completely satisfied and we know that Wayfair has a huge customer base, which can skew such review rates. So we give Wayfair a three-star rating for its highly competitive pricing and low shipping costs, with the recommendation that customers be proactive with any discrepancies in product quality or customer service issues.

LIGHTING FOR YOU

Visit Site

Lighting for You falls in the middle of our reviewed lighting retailers, with a rating of three stars. Their product offerings are fairly limited; at the time of this review, they only offered lights (for example, no ceiling fans), and even in that category there were few items on the lower end of the price scale. Many product categories had no items listed at all, such as kids/themed chandeliers.

We did find a variety of products available in the higher-end products such as Swarovski chandeliers, and those were competitively priced against other sellers' listings. For example, a Swarovski Strass chandelier was priced at just over $4000, and, surprisingly, was $10 less than the same fixture offered by a major retailer.

Lighting for You does not have a very useful search feature; filtering results in a product category only allows you to sort by the first letter or number in the product name, not by price or any other relevant criteria. Shipping tends to be more expensive that most other lighting companies that we surveyed, with free shipping for orders over $100. Lighting for You also has a stricter return policy - 14 days compared with 30 at most retailers - and does charge a 20-40% restocking fee on returns. Customers are also expected to pay for the cost of shipping both ways when merchandise is returned.

We were also surprised to note that Lighting for You does not have a toll-free customer service number, nor does it offer a direct contact email for customer questions.

Because Lighting for You proved to be competitively priced in the higher-end market, we give it a three-star rating; this could be improved with better search capabilities and lower charges for restocking and shipping.

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Light Fixture Stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find that perfect light fixture to compliment your personality and style!
