Types of Allen Roth Lighting
Allen Roth originally started producing pendant lighting and other lights that really focused on being used in the kitchen, but recently they have been expanding their lineup to include lighting for all over the house. I have listed all the different types and brief descriptions of all the types of lighting.
Allen Roth Chandelier
If you have ever seen a chandelier then you might be envisioning a large elegant ball room with forty foot ceilings. Although these are a great use, that doesn't make them the only use for a chandelier. To get the full effect of what you could do with a chandelier, I suggest you take a look at an Allen Roth chandelier! Allen Roth started producing their chandelier to be featured in a living room and in the entry of a home without having to have an enormous ceiling height. I love the style of the chandelier as it provides an extremely stylish and sophisticated feel that can truly transform a room! There are a few different styles for these chandeliers along with different lighting numbers. Allen and Roth makes the following chandeliers:
- Allen Roth Bronze 4 Light Chandelier
- Allen Roth 9 Light Chandelier
- Allen Roth 18 Light Chandelier
- Allen Roth 8 Light Chandelier
- Allen Roth 14 Light Chandelier
Allen Roth Chandeliers are made of different materials, shapes and sizes. They also come in different colors. Neoclassical motifs carved in wood used to be more prominent but with the advent of crystals, many Allen Roth chandeliers are made of lead crystals, where light bursts out in small spectacles. Some Allen chandeliers come with a bronze finish which is full metal as brace and ornately designed with the most amazing crystal drops. This chandelier placed in front of the main door is a beauty that none can resist.
Along with this, for your bedroom needs, there are many fixtures that are perfect. A good example is the six light Allen Roth chandelier which has a nickel finish. Your bedroom will look more modern. A major advantage of this is that it is dimmable if incandescent bulbs are used which is great if you are relaxing in bed and want some light!
Allen and Roth Lamps
If you are someone that enjoys reading at night then of course you are going to need some lighting. That being said, if you are looking for reading light, then you can't rely on just plain old ceiling lights, you need a standup type of lighting. A great example of this is are Allen and Roth lamps! Allen Roth lamps provide you with table lamps and standup lamps that are both stylish and provide you with a relaxed dim lighting environment.
Most homeowners might know this, but lamps can be divided into several categories. Choosing one that best suits your needs should be easy if you know which type of light can illuminate your spaces appropriately. You can choose between the two main lamp categories which include:
- Table lamps –mostly used to create ambience, they can easily create soft and diffused glows. Note that the best table lamps happen to be the ones with opaque or translucent shades. They can reflect the light above or below with ease.
- Floor lamps – they serve pretty much the same purpose as table lamps. The only thing that sets them apart is the fact that they make grand statements. That is mainly because they come in strange shapes. Then there is also the fact that they can be hung at different heights.
Thankfully with their recent releases, Allen + Roth has come out with quite a few different choices for lamps, and I'm sure they have something that will cater to your needs. They have quite a few different colors that all fit their traditional modern type style that Allen & Roth is known for. I personally love the Allen Roth floor lamps like in the picture above. These provide quite a bit of light but keeps the mood in a nice and relaxed setting. I personally own the Allen + Roth Latchbury model floor lamp and I keep it in the corner of my living room for when I want to sit in my recliner and read the night away.
The great thing about these lamps are there versatility. Allen and roth lamps can be used to highlight a room’s focal point or even become the focal point itself. Alternatively, one can create a balance between these two options by having conventional lights and complementing them with Allen Roth lamps. It does not end there. Allen roth lights can also be used as accent fixtures. For this to happen however, one must be keen not to overshadow and completely mask the focal point of a room. Note that the focal point in this sense can mean the main source of light. Balancing all these features and determining which lamp goes where will help you to create a unique environment impeccable reflection, minimal shadows and appealing diffusion.

Allen Roth ceiling lights can be a very significant design element in any space. Not only do they provide illumination to a room, but they also contribute to the overall feel and look of the space. They are one of the most efficient and practical ways to fill a room with light. The right type and style of lighting will accentuate your home and get you more from each space, whether it is working, cooking or relaxing. There are various types and styles of ceiling lights, which has made it quite hard to decide which one to buy. To choose the right lighting option for the ceiling of your space, you need to consider the type of room, how much light you need, the use of light for design or functional purpose and if it is going to fit in the space. Once you think about these factors, it becomes apparent what type and style are more suitable than the other.

I personally own the Allen Roth Castine ceiling light which I have in my living room. It has an absolute brilliant bronze finish that looks great, and it truly can light up my room!
Allen Roth Pendant Lighting
Pendant lights are one of the most beautiful lightings from Allen Roth as they are the original Allen Roth Lighting piece! They can also be called a suspending light or a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling by a cord or metal chain. Pendant lights present the idea of a pendant hanging from the ceiling and are usually used as the main lighting for any room. They are mostly utilized over kitchen countertops, dining rooms, or bathrooms. The idea of pendant lighting originated from the concept of lanterns back in the old times, which evolved over time and were utilized differently in different ages. In fact, the pendant lamps on old town streets became a trademark of so many famous cities in Europe and gained a lot of attention and popularity not only by the locals but also the tourists.
Although the pendant lights are a little low in brightness, they still look modern and graceful. Pendant lights could be utilized in almost all capacities from the kitchen and living/drawing room to the bedroom and balcony. Home designers prefer to put it exactly above a subject that is to be focused on. For example, it could be placed right above the dining table, above the kitchen counter, on the ceiling of the balcony focusing on the seating arrangement, or in the drawing room just over a portrait or painting. Although Allen Roth has a wide variety of lighting ornaments, pendant lights are one of a kind.
Allen + Roth Valleymede Pendant Lighting
After owning and trying quite a few different types of pendant lights, I have finally found my favorite, and that is the Allen + Roth Vallymede Pendant Light! This barn jar pendant light is perfect for in your kitchen where it will provide you with a calm modern design while providing ample light! It is 25.47 inches long which gives it just the right amount of room between the ceiling and the table/bar.
This piece comes in both an aged bronze finish or a brushed nickel finish. I personally chose the aged bronze finish because I liked the look of it, and it went perfect with the rest of my kitchen. I believe getting this piece was one of the best and least expensive options you can get to really transform your kitchen!
