It happens to us all: your favorite lamp gets knocked over and just stops working. Or maybe your favorite heirloom light fixture starts to show wear and tear. You might be dreading the thought of trying to replace your favorite lamp, or worse yet, trying to match a new piece to your other matching lamps. You may want to update your antique lamps because you would like to use a dimmer switch. Before you start saving for new living room lighting consider having the fixture repaired!
In many cases, you may be able to extend the life of lamps by replacing old wiring. Old fixtures can have wiring that has become brittle, or a house pet may have chewed it. The wiring should be replaced for safety purposes. We always run our fingers along the wiring and note any damages. Sockets can also be replaced or modified to accept a three-way bulb or higher wattage bulb. We also replace halogen bulbs with new, more energy-efficient LED replacements when desired.
Lamps can often have new features added to them that make them even more attractive and useful in your home. Replacing switches that have been damaged by wear and tear can make your lamp easier and safer to use. In some cases, a lamp can be turned into a touch lamp. Dimmer switches can be added to allow you to adjust your lighting to suit your mood.
You can “upcycle” your older shades to restore their beauty. We can have shades relined or recovered by sending them away. This may incur a freight charge, and involves a wait until they are returned. It’s often less expensive (and more fun!) to replace a lampshade and update the style of your lighting with shades from our wide selection of designer shades. A new lampshade can make your lamp look modern and add style to your interior.
We do not send repairs away and our prices are very reasonable. All lamps are repaired on the premises, and we always offer a firm price quote. Unless we need to order parts to complete the repair, most lamp repairs can be completed in a week. Let us help you keep your favorite lamps and get the full life out of any fixture in your home!
