Light Bulbs to Light Up Any Space

Light bulbs can do more than just brighten up a room. They can set a mood, save energy and increase safety. The thing is, you have so many options it can be a challenge to find the right light bulbs. LED light bulbs, tube lights, fluorescent tube lights, black light bulbs, night lights, LED tube lights - the list goes on in all kinds of shapes, sizes and watts.

So Many Light Bulbs

Incandescent light bulbs were the traditional light bulb standard for many years, but LED light bulbs are the new go-to light bulb for many reasons. They use less energy and last longer. They get bright instantly and can produce a light color range from warm yellow to cool bluer white.

CFL bulbs are also long lasting and up to ten times longer than incandescent light bulbs, while using around 75 percent less energy to produce the same brightness. The CFL light color ranges from warm yellow to cool blue. CFL bulbs usually come in a spiral-shaped design and can be used in many different fixtures around your home, including indoor lamps and outdoor post lights.

Know Your Light Bulbs

It’s important to know some basics when considering light bulbs. For example, lumens is the amount of light the bulb gives off, while the wattage is the amount of energy a bulb uses. For the most energy-efficient light bulbs, check the lumens per watt ratio on the light bulb’s packaging. The greater the lumens-to-watts ratio, the more energy efficiency the bulb provides.

Elevate Your Decor

Style may not be the first thing you think about when you think light bulbs, but you can update your decor with a variety of light bulbs. Decorative light bulbs come in a range of styles. Imagine the look and feel of a room lit by a collection of vintage light bulbs. Sometimes called Edison light bulbs, vintage light bulbs can add a polished, classy vibe to any room. They come in many shapes and sizes and are distinguished by the antique-style filament in the center.

Light Bulbs Do More

Night lights provide comfort in a child’s bedroom. They’re also great for bathrooms at night when you don’t want to flip on overheads. With smart light bulbs, you don’t even need to flip a switch. Smart light bulbs, paired with your home automation system, allow you to turn your lights off and on with a simple verbal command.
