In 1973, Tom Rensenhouse opened his first lighting showroom in Kansas City. While it was expected that the newest lighting products from the top manufacturers in the industry would be included, Tom recognized that it would take much more than just quality products to fulfill his vision of being the “best” lighting store in the market. He did his homework. He researched the industry and the greater Kansas City metroplex.From the very beginning, Tom started selling what people wanted to buy, not what the industry wanted to sell. In the early 70′s, leading-edge, energy-saving products were featured. Ceiling fans, residential fluorescent lighting, and a wide array of forward-thinking items helped homeowners save energy and save on the newest lighting styles at “everyday” low prices. For the customers who were building a new home, a specially trained staff of decorators worked with the home builder and home buyer to create an entire household of beautiful, energy-saving lighting effects t
Angelique CollectionAbstract art uses triangles to create a prism effect; taking what is often smooth and bringing in unexpected angles. With Angelique, triangles reign supreme – in the preforated patterns that cover the irredescent organza shade to the clear crystals.
Shop by StyleChoosing the perfect fixture depends on your Style. With so many styles to choose from the options are endless. A designer will pick a style to tell a story, send message, or provide some continuity to the design of the space.
Styles are also very subjective. Be sure to look at similar styles to yours to see all the possibilities.
I visited the store looking to replace all fixtures in my home. I walked around for 30 minutes and not one employee spoke to me or offered to help. One employee was helping another customer and I patiently waited until she was finished. As soon as she was done she walked past me and asked the lady behind me if she needed help! I walked out and drove to Wilsons lighting – they had a much better selection, friendly staff, better prices and I found all 12 fixtures.

The future is here when it comes to LED in lighting.
Beautiful show room full of all the lights you could dream of. Came in looking for 2 pendant lights and wanted to leave with so much more. Staff was friendly and the warehouse bought out my boxes in light speed time, pun intended. They have so much more there than just lights … fans, tables, chairs, pillows & Knick Knacks galore. Signed up online before my visit and got a $20 off $100 coupon! Can’t beat that! Come take a peek when you have some time to kill! Original pieces for all price levels.

When we built our home, our builder used Rensen for lights. So naturally, when a globe broke, I brought it back and asked if they could order a new one. He said no and that was that. He clearly had no interest in helping me or even checking, it was a stern no and he walked away. Pretty shocking since we only built recently. Won’t be doing business here again!

Very pleased with this store! My mom and I went here to find a ceiling fan for our living room & kitchen & a chandelier for our great room. Found ALL of these for discounted prices you literally can’t find anywhere else. So pleased with the service, we had a helpful man who showed us around and gave us any information we needed.
PendantsPendant lights hang from the ceiling and can be used in many different applications. Some use globes to reduce glare, others are fitted with shades that direct light downward. Pendants are used to provide task light over tables and work areas such as kitchen islands.
They are also beautiful and can do their job while accenting the space.
LampsWhen choosing lighting, consider the mood you want to create and the tasks performed in the room. Then choose the appropriate fixtures in a style that complements your decor. Most rooms are used for multiple activities, and the right fixture can help you define zones.
In a family room for example, a reading lamp with an opaque shade placed next to a chair targets light for someone reading, while keeping the rest of the room darker for those watching TV.

Simply do not spend your business here. Their owner, Ron, is an unkind person and displays no direct care for the people who are potentially buying his services. Additionally, their inventory is lacking – I was also looking for a specific chain for my lights (that I did not purchase from Rensen) and Ron showed very little willingness to help me. Poor communication throughout their organization because it took them over 15 minutes to finally discover that they did not have the item that I was seeking. Plenty of better places to do business in my opinion.

I had a rather complicated request, as I wanted a chandelier for a historic property. Fortunately, Rensen House of Lights is a dealer for the Schonbek company which makes exquisite light fixtures here, in the USA. Ron, the manager of Rensen House of Lights was very patient with me as we sent emails back and forth, until I made the final selection for a custom chandelier. The matter was further complicated as my husband’s health issues did not allow me to pick up the fixture, as I had hoped to do. Ron very graciously had the fixture shipped for me. I am very grateful for the great customer service and for the lovely Schobek fixtures that are available through Rensen House of Lights.
