Natural Materials for Light Fixtures

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

One of the easiest ways to incorporate natural materials into your existing light fixtures is through a new shade. For example, your lamps or even small wall sconces, chandeliers or other light fixtures with shades can all be replaced with more eco-friendly options. However, keep in mind that throwing out shades when they are still in good shape is not eco-friendly, so if you absolutely must throw them out, consider donating them instead so that they go to better use.

When looking for new, eco-friendly shades, you have a number of different options. For starters, if you’re planning to purchase new, consider shades with fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles or other recycled fibers. Other eco-friendly fabrics to look for include organic cotton blends, hemp, bamboo blends and so forth.

Of course, the most eco-friendly of all choices is to continue using your current shades or to purchase shades from a secondhand, thrift or antique store. So keep this in mind as well, even by keeping your current shades on your light fixtures, you’re staying on trend and remaining eco-friendly.

Eventually, light fixtures need to be replaced. Sometimes, there’s just no getting around it. While it’s true you can have your existing light fixtures rewired, sometimes this just isn’t the best choice for whatever reason. With this in mind, there are certain materials that you can choose from when shopping for new light fixtures.

For wall sconces, chandeliers, ceiling lights and other light fixtures that feature some type of glass shade, look for fixtures made with recycled glass. Recycled glass comes in a wide array of colors, shapes, sizes and colors, so there’s no reason not to opt for it in the place of newly created glass.

For the body of the fixture, it can be a bit more tricky. You may be able to find light fixtures made from reclaimed metals, but it’s still unlikely. Light fixtures made from natural stones may also be an option, but can be costly and hard to come by.

Natural materials and going green are all the rage in just about every part of interior design, including in the world of lighting. If you need to update your light fixtures, consider opting for fixtures made from reclaimed, recycled, organic or eco-friendly materials. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Craftmade (the manufacturer), advised that there is a thread pipe that is 1/4 inch in diameter that connects into the Craftmade ceiling fans. As a general rule of thumb, we try to advise our customers to stay within the same brand. What happens is that each manufacturer makes their products differently and they are not universal. The manufacturers will not guarantee compatibility with any other manufacturer and if it is not compatible with your ceiling  fan and you wish to return it there is a 20% restocking fee and you would be responsible for shipping the merchandise back. If your existing lighting fixture at home is a Craftmade ceiling fan and you have the model number you should call the manufacturer and they should be able to advise you if it is compatible with your product.

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Question:

What is the difference between this Craftmade Cased White Glass Elegance Light Kit – CM-LK1CFL and Craftmade Classic Ceiling Fan Light Kit – CM-LK3CFL , and are they both compatible with Craftmade M29  ceiling fan? Also is “medium base” the standard CFL size?

Answer:

Craftmade Max Air 29" Ceiling Fan
Craftmade Max Air 29″ Ceiling Fan

Both the LK1CFL and LK3CFL ceiling fan light kit will be compatible with the M29 ceiling fan. The bottom of the fan has 1/4-inch all threaded nose cone to receive to the light kit. Basically, all Craftmade light kit can fit with the Craftmade ceiling fan. We are not sure which type of CFL you are reffering to or getting. As long as your CFL lamp is a medium base, it will fit into the medium base socket. However, if your CFL lamp is too long or too wide, then the shade might be in the way.
