About Us & Our Showroom

Hi there! We're Lighting & Bulbs Unlimited, a lighting showroom local to Charlotte, North Carolina that has been enlightening meaningful spaces since 1996. When we first opened our doors in 1996 we were solely a light bulb retail location. As time went on, we grew into a lighting showroom, offering displays of various chandeliers, ceiling fans, wall sconces, and more.

Today, we also offer services, such as Lighting consultations, Lighting Design, Installations, LED Conversions, Lamp Repairs, UL Services, Custom Creations for Fixtures and Lamps, Crystal or Vintage Restorations, and more.

If it involves Lighting, you can involve us.

Located in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Charlotte, our showroom is directly across the street from Banner Nursery, Hearth & Patio, The Barker Lounge, and The Common Market Oakwold. Other locations we're near would include Morris Costumes, Oakhurst STEM Elementary, Swirl, Night Swim Coffee, Hughes Flooring, Clayworks, Refinery Salon, and Lay of the Land. Our former locations include South Tryon Street, Matthews Township Parkway (Clock tower) and Independence Blvd.

About Our Showroom

Celebrating twenty five years of Lighting & Bulbs Unlimited

Our doors opened for the first time in August of 1996, but not as Lighting & Bulbs Unlimited. Light Bulbs Unlimited: Your go-to destination for all things light bulbs. From common bulbs to hard-to-find specialty bulbs, and everything in between. Our original slogan read, “If we ain’t got it, we’ll get it!” With our signature red lining the shelves and lighting up our sign out front, we were open for business just off of Independence Blvd. To suit the 90s, we actually offered custom neon projects and had a section of the storefront dedicated to black lights, plasma globes, and most definitely a few lava lamps.

As the years went by, the lighting industry changed and we followed. At our Matthews Township location, most commonly known as the clocktower, we displayed chandeliers and pendants along the windows and landscape lighting by our entrance. Morano glass pendants, crystal chandeliers, all lighting up the most gorgeous window display we’ve ever had. This opened up the ability to truly get a visual on the appearance and quality of the fixtures that we sold, before ordering. While in our Matthews location, we opened up a second location in South End, which became our second home until both locations were merged. Most of the clients we have today, first met us just here, off of South Tryon Street.

 As all cities do, Charlotte continued to grow, resulting in our building being sold. This was the perfect time for us to create something that was truly our own: 4335 Monroe Road.

 So we would like to welcome you to our new home; with God’s grace, our forever home.
