All sale or promotional prices apply to pre paid orders. Sale items cannot be on account. Sale pricing cannot be retroactive. Please call 941-627-5353 for more details. Promotional priced items are non-returnable. All sales on sale priced items are final.
If you would like to return an item that is in like-new condition with original product tags, sanitary protection, and packaging that has not been installed, used, worn, or modified, you may return the product at your expense within 30 days of receipt. Any additional fees for shipping internationally, shipping to HI or AK, or any minimum order fees are all non-refundable. Customers who place orders online are responsible for the accuracy of their product selection and information entered. Customers who place orders by phone or chat must review their receipt for accuracy within 24 hours.
Some manufacturers charge a restocking fee or have more specific guidelines than listed above. Please refer to the product page to view a particular manufacturer’s return policy or you can browse our list of manufacturers with no restocking fee. If you return an item with a restocking fee, it will be deducted from the refund.
We sell products from some manufacturers that are custom made or built-to-order. These items are non-returnable and non-cancellable once the order has been placed. Please refer to the product page to view a particular manufacturer’s return policy or you can browse our list of manufacturers that do not accept returns.
Step 1 – Acquire authorization and instructions
To begin the return process, please call 941-627-5353 to speak with one of our showroom staff
In most cases we will immediately email you a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number to return product along with a label and return instructions.
Manufacturers who are not participating in our Instant Return program must first approve the return. This process may take up to 7 business days. Once received, we will email you a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number with a label and return instructions.
Step 2 – Shipping product back
Ship the item to the warehouse. Below are the keys to a successful return:
You will have 30 days in which to return the product from the date that we receive approval from the manufacturer. After 30 days, the Return Authorization will expire and no replacements or refunds will be given.
In the event that a return becomes damaged on its way back to the return destination, we will inform you via email that the item was received damaged and hold the product for up to 30 days. It is the customer’s responsibility to file a claim with the shipping carrier and instruct us concerning what to do with the damaged product. If we have not received notification or response from you within 30 days, the item will be donated or destroyed.
Step 3 – Refunds
Once the returned item has been received and verified to have all original contents and packaging and confirmed to be free of damage, modification, or been worn, the refund credit process will begin.
Customers will be refunded via the same method in which the item was purchased or via check from Light Ideas, Inc. Refunds via check are typically issued within 14 business days of final approval.
Items returned without the proper RGA# or sent to the wrong warehouse are subject to an automatic 50% restocking fee or complete forfeiture of your refund. If credit is to be given, it will be by store credit only. Please read your return instructions carefully to avoid delays and unnecessary expenses.
Please do not request a charge back from your credit card company during the return process. Due to the time it takes to resolve charge back disputes, it is usually better to be patient and wait for the return process to run its course. If a charge back has been submitted, we will not be able to credit you for your return until the charge back mediation process has been completed. This process can take up to 180 days.

Standard Ground Shipping – Small Parcel UPS and FedEx Items
Light Ideas offers FREE SHIPPING on selected items able to ship via UPS or Federal Express Ground, and during some promotional periods for orders that are $199.00 or greater. This Free Shipping Offer is applicable only to orders shipping to the 48 continental United States. Actual shipping costs will be incurred for orders shipping to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico. Please call our store at 941-627-5353 for a shipping quote to these areas.
Orders less than our Free Shipping limit will incur a standard processing and handling charge of $5.00. Orders cannot be combined for the purposes of this free shipping offer.
Large items, such as large foyer chandeliers and torchiere floor lamps, may ship via truck freight. Orders containing items that must ship via truck freight will incur a $65 surcharge for each item that must ship via freight. Items that must ship via truck freight are marked as such on the individual product pages of this site, and are determined by the manufacturers’ submitted carton dimensions and shipping weight.
Items shipped via truck freight are delivered to curbside or driveway only. Most carries will contact you to set up a delivery time, usually a 2-4 hour appointment window during business hours. As such, it is the customer’s responsibility to provide an accurate contact phone number for the delivery address.
If you require special assistance with a Truck Freight delivery, additional services like inside delivery and lift gate are available at an additional charge. Please contact a store associate at 941-627-5353 for a quote on these services.
At the time of delivery, the driver will require that you inspect the condition of the shipment and sign the delivery receipt. Be sure to note on the receipt ANY and ALL visible damage to the packaging of your item(s). Noting the condition of the delivery is the responsibility of the customer – not the driver.
If the carrier is unable to contact the customer, the customer will then be responsible for any storage fees or freight charges back to the shipper. See our Return Policies for full details.
At the discretion of our store, professionally trained and experienced personnel from Light Ideas will deliver merchandise free of charge to customers deemed to be within the trading area of Light Ideas .
