Allen Roth Lighting: My Way To Go!

Allen Roth lighting has been my go-to system for the past few years! I have used interior lighting, chandeliers, and ceiling lights from quite a few different companies, and I can definitely say that this is the way to go!

Below on the following page, you will find my favorite tips for being a responsible shopper. Also, I give an advice from my own experience about how to pick the correct lighting fixture.

Buying Lighting With a Purpose

Out of all my friends, I know quite a few impulsive buyers!  When they are shopping at Lowe’s or Home Depot and see something nice, they instantly start putting all these products in their basket and don’t look back.  That is exactly what you shouldn’t be doing.  When you are looking for a new piece for your house, whether it is a light or it’s just a piece of furniture, you need to shop with a purpose.  So when you are headed into the store, you need to know what you are looking for.  You need to look at the design of your home and start getting ideas on what would fit your design, and would look good.

What Type of Light are You Looking For?

As I said before, you need to know what you want.

So, when you are looking at Allen & Roth lights you need to know if you are looking for a chandelier or are you looking for some more simple interior lighting?  Once you know this, you can start narrowing down your search.

Generally, chandeliers either are placed above the dining room table to provide a central light that is also a beauty in its own light or in a tall ceiling room to give the room a cozy filling while having a majestic centerpiece.  So, obviously, a regular interior light would not do the room justice in place of a chandelier.

Along with that, a regular interior hanging or mounted light is good to provide light to a regular room or especially down a hallway.  Allen Roth really strives on these interior lights, as this was their bread and butter.

Know Your Wattage

In the previous section, we talked about knowing what type of light you really needed.  Well know we need to talk about lighting wattage, and what’s the best for you.  Wattage is really important for lights as it determines how bright and translucent a lighting fixture is.  Obviously, this is important in a home setting because it will determine if a light fully engulfs a room in light or if there are still shadows in the room.

For example, generally, a good number for an incandescent light bulb is around 100 watts.  If you have two bulbs that each should be at least 60 watts. And so on. This is enough to really illuminate the room without being too much.

For a fluorescent light bulb (also known as CFL – compact fluorescent light), the wattage range should be somewhere around 40 watts. This is because CFLs consume less power than regular incandescent light bulbs.

Eco-Friendly Lighting by Allen + Roth

What is Eco-Friendly Lighting?

Lighting that is eco-friendly doesn’t have to be hard to come by. Recycled, natural or reused textiles can make eco-friendly lighting fixtures. Glass, metal or plastic lighting fixtures can all be produced using these types of environmentally friendly materials. It’s not just enough to use an eco-friendly lighting fixture, however.

When choosing which bulbs to put into your new light fixtures, choose a LED bulb. LED bulbs are 80% more efficient than traditional light bulbs and waste much less energy as heat. You can now find LED bulbs that come in warmer white colors, instead of the blue tones they originally produced.

CFL bulbs are also eco-friendly. CFL stands for “compact fluorescent bulb.” It is a type of bulb that uses only a quarter of the energy a traditional incandescent bulb uses. They also last much longer than traditional bulbs! You will save time and money by using CFL bulbs.

Why is Eco-Friendly Lighting Important?

Traditional incandescent light bulbs of the past waste most of their energy on heat production. In fact, only five to ten percent of the energy an incandescent bulb consumes is used to make light! This is not acceptable! They also typically run out of energy much faster than a CFL or LED bulb. Purchasing eco-friendly lighting allows you to lower your carbon footprint and reduces your contribution to garbage dumps and landfills. CFL and LED bulbs are a smart choice.

  1. I have a ceiling light fixture with a fan in the center. It has black leaves going around the out side in medal I have no idea how to replace the lights !! Bought a house with it in. Any help you gave me to change the lights in it ??

    1. Hi Ruth,
      I assume you got an Allen+Roth Eastview ceiling fan

      Replacing bulbs in this fixture is a bit complicated. There is a small “door” above each bulb and it can be accessed between the ceiling and the top of the lamp. You need a screwdriver to remove and replace the “doors”. It may take about 15 minutes to replace all four of the bulbs.

      Hope it helps!

  2. Where can I get more of your LED “1 string of 55 lights” with brown chords #0482364.
    Got some at Lowes and now no longer seem to be carrying them.

  3. I am looking for a replacement bulb for Allen & Roth string lights that I purchased at my local Lowe’s Home Improvement Store. One bulb was defective and Lowe’s does not carry any replacement bulbs. Does anyone have a working phone number for Allen & Roth? All I need is a replacement bulb for Item #338657 Model LW 100069-072016

  4. Looking for the drakston 20 inch tiffany style pendant light. Model 34449. Lowes no longer carry it except in canada. Can I find it in the usa??

    1. Hi Barbara,
      If Lowe’s does not have then it is not available in USA. Maybe you can consider ordering it from Canada?
      Have a nice day!

  5. I need installation instructions for an 8 light chandelier ( bar light ) number 0597007from Allen + Roth – I cannot find them on this website – can you e-mail me some please? Thank You, Clive Fransella

    1. Hi Clive,
      I am not sure I can understand what chandelier you have – it looks like there is nothing with such model number under Allen + Roth. Could you double-check the number

  6. I am looking for your 4ft light Earling. Lowes was carrying it but I can’t find one. I bam in Conroe, Texas 77356.
