Allen Roth Lighting: My Ultimate Guide To This Modern Lighting Brand

Are you remodeling your home and you need some new ideas? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

You and I can both agree that installing a beautiful light system in your home is like putting the cherry on the cake. Who knows, you might be one pendant light away from a beautiful kitchen. 

If you are looking for an ideal light fixture, Allen and Roth by Lowes is the way to go. Their lights are stylish and of good quality – the best duo you can ask for. 

Since I love Allen Roth lamps so much, I have decided to share my enthusiasm with you. I have created a fun yet detailed catalog of the best Allen+Roth lighting fixtures to get you inspired. 

Allen Roth lighting fixtures have been some of my favorites for the past few years, ever since I did my research and found what fixtures and lights suited me best. I think after this blog post, allen roth will be your go-to company, too!

Allen And Roth Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

Does your front yard look amazing during the day, but loses its appeal at night? I can’t stress enough how great Allen and Roth lights are at improving curb appeal.

If you prefer a traditional style, I recommend you check out their Castine product line

or Freeport collection to match an industrial theme. 

Both lines have a selection of outdoor wall lights, lantern pendant lights, post lights, and flush mount lights. There is even a Castine ceiling light fan  you can install in your pavilion. You will certainly appreciate the breeze during hot summer nights. 

Bob Vila recommends you mix and match different types of lights in your backyard. Mount wall lights next to the front door, trace the pathway with energy-saving solar lights, and adorn your gazebo with Allen + Roth pretty crackle string lights

Allen And Roth Solar Lights

More and more people are deciding to light their yard in an eco-friendly way.

You can do that too with this Allen Roth solar post lamp  (Model #PLQ9CA-F100C-BK-1). You simply mount it on a 3-inch post and you are good to go! 

The fixture is water and rust-resistant, so you will get lots of use out of it.

The lamp produces 100 lumens of light, which is equivalent to about 20 watts, so it works for up to 8 hours at a time. Its photocell control automatically turns on the lamp at dusk and turns it off at dawn. 

Feel free to match your new Allen+Roth landscape lighting with the Cadenby 27-inch table lamp and the Cadenby 56-inch floor lamp. Your backyard will be illuminated without adding a cent to your electricity bill

If you are interested in buying Allen+Roth LW-1059  post lamp, let me remind you that it is not solar-powered, despite being advertised as such on Amazon. It uses one 100-watt medium base bulb.

  • Made of water-resistant parts 
  • Up to 8-hour run time 
  • Model # PLQ9CA-F100C-BK-1 has photocell control

Allen And Roth String Lights

Allen + Roth string lights are great for creating a cozy and romantic ambiance indoors and outdoors. 

This Edison style string fixture has 10 lights, giving you 9 feet of lighted length in total. Each lightbulb has a power of 7 watts. They emit a soft, warm glow that is not distracting. 

If any of the lights break, you can purchase replacement bulbs with item number 652338 at Lowes. 

You can connect up to 6 string lights to fully adorn your gazebo. This is possible because there are plugs on both ends.

But enough about them! How charming do these crackle string lights look? This design looks special because of the clear crackled glass adorned with gold accents. 

The 8.5-foot cord has 10 globe bulbs, each having 0.96 watts. The emitted light is not so bright that it will attract every insect nearby. You can connect up to 10 strings to achieve better illumination.

The whole collection is made of water-resistant, die-cast aluminum. The clear seeded glass proudly displays the light from within. 

All of the light fixtures have a rubbed bronze finish that will beautifully blend with other natural colors of outdoors. 

Lights vary in wattage depending on the model. For instance, this Allen Roth outdoor wall lantern  takes one 60-watt bulb, while this flush mount light  accepts two 40 watt bulbs. The bulbs are not included with the product. So don’t forget to buy them! 

All of the Castine lights have to be hard-wired into your house. Lowes has made the installation a bit easier by including mounting hardware in the package.

Allen And Roth Pendant Light Fixtures

Looking for a way to upgrade your kitchen? 

Instead of spending lots of money on new kitchen cabinets, try investing in an Allen and Roth pendant light fixture that you can install right above your kitchen island. 

Allen Roth pendant fixtures will instantly add style to your old interior. Better Homes & Gardens recommends you choose pendant lights that reflect your décor. Fortunately, Allen and Roth offer something for every style. 

Pick the Vallymede jar pendants  in nickel finish for your modern kitchen and the Bristow linear fixture  in bronze to enhance your industrial home.

The use of pendant lights is not limited to the kitchen. Feel free to install mini pendants in the hallway and a low hanging ceiling light fixture in the very center of your living room. 

The gorgeous Allen+Roth Sequina drum pendant light in the picture above makes for a great centerpiece. Check it out!

Pendant fixtures are versatile and adaptable to your desired length. They provide a closer task light and are great for highlighting the best parts of the room. And let’s not forget how trendy they look!

For more inspiration, check out this House Beautiful photo gallery of ideas.

Allen + Roth Bristow Lights

Allen + Roth Bristow is an amazing indoor lighting collection that will instantly give your home an industrial flare. This line has a variety of different fixtures you can match to create a cohesive look throughout the house.

All the light fixtures are made of metal and clear glass to deliver unadulterated light to the room. 

Most of their lights are dimmable, which is great for creating a sultry ambiance. As far as I know, the Bristow pendant light and the flush mount lights are not dimmable. I recommend you check the specifications before purchase. 

The best thing is that all of these lights come with 60-watt bulbs — one less thing you have to purchase. 

Keep in mind that not all fixtures in this collection have the same type of bulb. For instance, this kitchen island linear pendant light  takes incandescent bulbs, while this track lighting  has integrated LED lights. 

Pros:

  • Broad collection
  • Lightbulbs included
  • Mounting hardware included 
  • Meets ETL safety standards 
  • 1-year limited warranty 

Cons:

  • Not all lights are dimmable
  • Glass parts may be fragile
  • LED lights don’t last that long

The Vallymede collection has different types of fixtures you can install throughout your house to achieve a harmonious look. It includes: 

  • Pendant lights
  • Flush mount lights
  • Vanity lights
  • Track light kit 

Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at their best sellers. 

Allen + Roth Vallymede 8-light Brushed Nickel Chandelier

Do you like the minimalistic look? If so, this Allen+Roth Vallymede 8-light fixture is right up your alley. 

In a brushed nickel finish, these jar lights look simple but attractive. They won’t take the attention away from the other décor in your dining room. 

This trendy light fixture requires eight 60-watt medium base bulbs that are sold separately. Together, they produce about 4800 lumens, which is more than enough for a 100 square-foot dining room

The lights are dimmable, allowing you to set a romantic ambiance when having dinner with a loved one. 

The height of the lights can be adjusted. They can hang from 8.5 inches to a maximum of 56.5 inches from the ceiling. The lower you let them dangle, the more dramatic of a look you will achieve. 

Pros:

  • Minimalistic look 
  • Provide great illumination
  • Can hang up to 56.5 inches
  • Are dimmable 
  • 1-year limited warranty

Cons:

Allen + Roth 3-light Vallymede Aged Bronze Lights

These pendant lights are similar to the previous example, only they have an aged bronze finish that best fits traditional, rustic, and antique décor.  

It is a multi-light fixture featuring three eye-catching pendant lights. The clear glass jar shades fully display the light from within to achieve better illumination. 

You can adjust the brightness of the three 60-watt bulbs with the dimmable feature. Just dim the light when you want to set a romantic mood in your bedroom. 

These pendant lights hang lower than the 8-pack nickel chandelier  reviewed above. You can let them hang as low as 81.13 inches. They are ideal for foyers where the ceilings are extra high.

The mounting hardware is included in the package, which is a big plus. The fixture has to be hardwired, so you should hire an electrician to be safe. 

Pros:

  • Aged bronze enhances traditional decor 
  • Hangs up to 81.13 inches
  • Dimmable 
  • Installation hardware included 
  • 1-year limited warranty

Cons:

  • Bulbs not included

Earling Semi-flush Mount Light

Looking for a pendant light that looks like a million bucks but costs way less? You might have just found one!

This Earling pendant light is an amazing centerpiece for dining rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms. Its metal frame has a detailed pattern that looks amazing when illuminated. 

This 18-inch wide fixture requires three medium base 60-watt bulbs. When combined, they can be pretty bright. This is where the fabric shade comes in handy. It will protect your eyes from glare. 

The adjustable chain allows you to hang the chandelier as high as 30 inches and up to 60 inches below the ceiling

If you are not a fan of chandeliers, I recommend you check out the Earling 15-in w brushed nickel fabric semi-flush mount light that looks just as impressive, if not more. You can also find it on the Lowes website. 

Pros:

  • Makes for a great centerpiece
  • Oil-rubbed bronze finish
  • 60-inch maximum hanging height
  • Fabric shade protects the eyes 
  • 3-year limited warranty 

Cons:

  • Bulbs not included

  • Instructions could be better 

Allen Roth Floor and Table Lamps

Who says the light should only come from the ceiling? Look around you! There is plenty of space in your room where you can create small pockets of light. 

Allen and Roth lamps are great for decorating, but most importantly, they serve a purpose.

At Better Homes & Gardens, they recommend you place a tall floor lamp next to your sofa to create a cozy reading nook. Look at the Allen + Roth 74.25-in Bronze Arc Floor Lamp in the picture above for inspiration. 

To familiarize yourself with other types of floor lamps, I recommend you check out this YouTube video:

The picture above shows how two Woodbine 28-inch Allen and Roth table lamps make the entrance to a hallway look lavish. 

In my opinion, the best looking freestanding fixtures are from the Latcbury and Eberline collections. I have reviewed my favorites below. 

Latchbury Collection

The Allen+Roth Latchbury collection has a unique, contemporary look that could easily be displayed in a museum of art.

This Latcbury 30.5-inch nickel table lamp features three water patterned glass shades on a brushed nickel base. The hammer style glass looks amazing when illuminated with three 60-watt bulbs. 

Its twin Latcbury 30.5-inch bronze table lamp looks just as amazing. It has the same triple-bulb design, only now, it has a rustic bronze finish

When illuminated, each glass shade looks like a single lighting bug has been captured in a jar. To make it work, simply plug it in the nearest wall socket

You can match both table lamps with the 66.55-inch floor lamp. The design of these fixtures is the same. The only difference is the height

 Pros:

  • Multi-head design looks trendy 
  • Simple on-off switch
  • Available in nickel and bronze finish 
  • Textured glass reduces glare
  • 1-year limited warranty

Cons:

  • Bulbs not included

Complete the look of your bedroom with an identical table lamp. You won’t regret it. 

The 25-inch table lamp looks as luxurious as its big brother. The lamp takes one 60-watt incandescent bulb, which you will have to buy separately.

Allen Roth Vanity Lighting

How does the lighting in your bathroom compare to other rooms?

Most bathrooms don’t have a window for the sunlight to come in. If that is the case for you, you will have to rely on artificial light only. That’s why the kind of vanity lights you choose is very important.

Allen And Roth Track Lighting Kits

Do you like multi-head light fixtures? If so, I recommend you check out these Allen Roth track lighting kits. There is a wide variety of styles you can choose from. Some are a part of a complete lighting line you can install throughout the home to achieve a cohesive look

Allen Roth kits vary in size, ranging from 3 to up to 6 lights per track. All seem to be LED integrated, except the 6-light 69.9-inch track light kit you can see in the picture above. This one takes six 60-watt bulbs.

But enough about technicalities, let’s talk about style!

Allen+Roth bronze track lighting from their Bristow collection will complete your industrial-style home. The base, which resembles water pipes, will look amazing against an exposed brick wall. 

For a modern twist, I recommend you check out these collections on top of other separate releases:

  • Sawyer
  • Sparta
  • Tucana
  • Sloan

You may have noticed that the Vallymede 4-head decorative track light is not on this list. Some people say the jar pendants on this track light don’t match the rest of the collection. I don’t think there is a huge difference. Your guests won’t notice it unless they look closely.

Check out this YouTube video for more tips on how to choose the right track lighting system for your home:

Allen and Roth Chandeliers

Looking to make a statement in your dining room? No light fixture speaks louder than a chandelier!

And who says chandeliers are only reserved for dining rooms? At Décor Aid, they encourage you to install one in your bathroom, walk-in closet, and nursery. 

Allen and Roth has an amazing range of chandeliers. They carry everything from traditional faux candle fixtures to modern ones that can’t be compared to anything else.

Their chandeliers vary in size based on how many lights they have. Each collection typically has different options available. For instance, the Latchbury line offers 3, 5, and 9-light fixtures. Other options include those with 4, 6, and 18 lights

Look at the picture above to see how spectacular the 18-light Dystra looks

You won’t be able to buy an Allen and Roth 8-light chandelier since this size seems to be discontinued. The only good alternative I could find is the Vallymede 8-light pendant fixture

Allen And Roth Eastview Lighting Collection

Do you like classical décor? If that is the case, then you will like the Allen and Roth Eastview lighting collection

It offers you a selection of beautiful: 

  • Pendant lights 
  • Chandeliers 
  • Track lighting 
  • Vanity lights 
  • Wall sconces 

As well as a floor lamp and ceiling fan.

Eastview chandeliers are available in different sizes. There is a 5-light, 6-light, 7-light, and 9-light option. Consider the size of your room before making a final decision. A chandelier gets that wow factor only when it is proportionate to its surroundings. 

The Eastview chandeliers create ambient light because they direct it upwards toward the ceiling. They are great for creating a soft mood in the bedroom.

Their 35.9-inch kitchen island fixture directs light downwards to create task lighting. The focused light lets you safely chop veggies. 

Keep in mind that most of the fixtures in this collection are discontinued or are hard to find. Only certain Lowes stores across the country still carry the mentioned chandelier and kitchen island light.

It is not a surprise why some of these pieces are no longer available since so many people obviously loved the elegant vine and leaf motif in oil-rubber bronze. 

If you too would like to adorn your home in such a style, I urge you to check out my article on how to match lights from the Eastview collection.

Allen Roth Ceiling Fan Light Kits

Do you live in an area where it gets hot in the summer? Allen+Roth lighting fans will cool you off when you most need it. 

More and more brands are making fans that you can proudly display, Allen+Roth being one of them.

For instance, this Sun Valley 30-inch ceiling fan light kit looks nothing like a fan. The drum shade made of natural linen successfully hides the three nickel brushed blades. Its remote control lets you control the three speeds and dimming function.

The Allen+Roth Auri ceiling fan is also way prettier than your standard fan. Its bent metal profile in aged brass, bronze, or brushed nickel finish will fit beautifully in your contemporary home. 

And if you are not a fan of this fan, check out the Bridgetown mid-century-inspired version. It is suitable for rooms up to 400 square feet in size. It takes four 8-watt bulbs, which come with the product. 

The only light ceiling fan that can be used outdoors is from the Castine collection, which is safe to use in damp locations. Feel free to install it on your patio to get the best of your summer nights. 

For a better insight on the topic, I recommend you check out my detailed guide on Allen and Roth ceiling fans.

Allen And Roth Lighting Replacement Parts

Has one of the glass globes on your chandelier busted? 

There is a way to get it replaced. However, it may take some time and patience to get ahold of Lowes customer service. 

Unfortunately, Lowes does not sell replacement parts for Allen + Roth lighting on their website. You will have to call the Customer Care Department at 800-554-6504 to order your chandelier replacement parts. 

The person on the line will ask you for the model number of the light fixture. You can find it on the Lowes website, right above the title of the product. 

Check out this article for more info on how to get a hold of Allen Roth customer service.

About The Allen + Roth Lighting Line 

Allen + Roth brand has been around since the 1980s. At first, they only made lighting fixtures. They started broadening their product line after signing a retailing deal with Lowes. Now, they make a wide range of indoor and outdoor home goods

The everyday consumer has fully embraced their diverse lighting options because they never fail to deliver sophistication and style at a reasonable price

Who Should Buy Allen + Roth Lights?

Everybody!

Allen and Roth doesn’t market their product to a specific group of people. They make lights for every taste and style. The price range of their products is inclusive, unlike high-end decor brands that specifically target the upper echelon. 

The ideal Allen and Roth customer is a person who likes following the latest design trends without breaking the bank. 

Here are some of the things to consider before buying your first Allen + Roth fixture:

  • Calculate the total cost of the fixture with the bulbs.
  • Buy a fixture from a collection if you want to gradually add on to it.
  • Check if the warranty is good
  • See if they make replacement parts for that fixture. 
  • Check the customer reviews for honest insight. 
  • Note that their customer service is not the best. 

Features To Look For In Allen + Roth Lighting 

Materials

Steel grey chandelier
Image credit: lowes.com

Allen Roth fixtures are made of mixed materials. The base of most of their pendant lights is made of sturdy metal. The pendants are typically made of clear, textured, or frosted glass. Certain industrial or country-inspired lights have a metal cage pendant, just like Danbury in the picture above.

Some of their more unique fixtures have pendants made of linen fabric or even natural rattan

Finish

The finish lets you coordinate your new fixture with the color scheme of your home. 

Most common Allen + Roth finishes are: 

  • Bronze 
  • Nickel
  • Chrome 
  • Brass 

Every finish sends a different message. Bronze exudes an old-fashioned charm, while chrome stays true to a modern style. As per bhg.com, a chandelier in a brass finish will add a vintage flair to your living room.  

The good news is that most Allen Roth collections offer more than one finish, so they can be easily integrated into different interior designs.

Types Of Light

How charming is this Allen + Roth Eastview ceiling fan? One of the reasons for this is the ambient light it creates. 

Decoraid.com recommends you layer your task, accent, and ambient lighting to create more depth in your home. 

The fan’s soft and mellow light is created by its four 40-watt incandescent bulbs. Most of the fixtures in my catalog here work on standard bulbs, however, some have integrated LED lights. 

LED lights are commonly rated to last at least 50,000 hours, which is way longer than the life expectancy of an incandescent bulb, which typically lasts only about 1,000 hours

On the other side, though, integrated LED lights may last longer, but they are a pain to replace. When they burn out, it is easier to buy a new fixture. Standard bulbs can be found anywhere and they are inexpensive. 

Hanging System

The video below beautifully showcases Allen Roth country-inspired mini pendant lights that hang by a string. This is possible because pendants are not heavy and don’t need to be supported by a chain. 

If the exposed cord looks too raw for your taste, Bobvila.com recommends you string oversized beads onto it. This way, you will give your kitchen a fun personality. 

And a cord is not the only type of hanging mechanism a light can have. 

Allen and Roth makes three types of hanging ceiling lights – cord, chain, or downrod. Each has its pros and cons:

  • Cord: Budget-friendly and adjustable in height, but can hold the least amount of weight.
  • Chain: Easier to hang and adjust the height, however, it tends to swing with the slightest breeze. 
  • Downrod: Looks more elegant, but it has less height flexibility and is not suitable for vaulted ceilings. 

Warranty

Allen + Roth incandescent light fixtures have a 1-year limited warranty. Their integrated LED fixtures are typically covered by a 5-year limited warranty.

Keep in mind that certain products do not have any warranty. This crackle glass string light  is one of them. 

I recommend you always check specifications for each product, just to be sure. 

Make It Shine With Allen Roth Lamps

What is the point of having a beautifully designed home when you can’t properly see the smallest details? Without proper lighting, all your furnishings and decor will fade into the background. 

Adequate illumination will showcase the true beauty of your home’s design! Allen Roth lamps know how to do this in a fashionable way.

Their broad range of lighting options makes it easy to coordinate the lighting in every room. 

And don’t forget about your patio. It needs some love, too! Sufficient outdoor lighting will extend the use of your home and make it more appealing to your friends and family.

What Is Allen Roth Lighting?

These lights are created by the brand Allen+Roth by Lowe’s.

The brand was formed in 1988 and first, they started just with lighting. They’ve since branched out and now have products in many different home improvement areas, but lighting is still my favorite category from them.

These lights are finely crafted with a modern feel that was refreshing when I first found them. The majority of these lamps and chandeliers are crafted with stainless steel and aluminum, which provides a modern feel that fits in with nearly every style.

Plan Before Buying!

Glass lighting

When I talk to my friends about home improvement or even just shopping in general, I find that a huge number of them are impulsive buyers.

They will literally buy a new lamp just because they like it and not because they actually need one. Obviously, if you need a new lamp, you should look for a lamp that you like, but only if you need one!

So with this, I suggest that you do your research before purchasing an Allen Roth product. So, this means if you are browsing the Allen and Roth website, you shouldn’t fill up your shopping cart with a bunch of different products if you aren’t sure if you are actually going to use them or even need them at all.

Know The Correct Wattage!

When you are purchasing any lighting feature, you should definitely pay attention to the wattage.

Just like all lighting fixtures, allen and roth lights vary in wattage.

If you are looking for lights that will fully light up a room and are good for cooking or studying, you should look for a light that is at least 100 watts. If you are looking for mood lighting or dimmer lights, you should look for lights that are under 50 watts so they don’t strain your eyes.

In the end, I think Allen lighting is the way to go.

They come in a variety of different styles so they can fit in with any type of mood. They also come in a variety of wattages to fit in any setting. Overall, I think these are great lights and they will be great for anyone looking for a new lighting solution in their home.
