new light bulbs

High-quality lighting transforms your home’s atmosphere into one of warmth and comfort. To create a functional and inviting space, it is important to know your lighting options. Read on to get tips on how to pick the best light bulb for your home.

Things to Look for in New Light Bulbs

When purchasing new lighting for your home, consider the following.


Select light bulbs according to the specific needs. You can choose general, task, or accent lighting. Choose general lighting for chandeliers and pendant lights for overall lighting  Task lighting works well for desk lamps and under-cabinet kitchen lights to light up a work area more brightly than the rest of the room. Purchase accent lighting or wall and landscape lights to create a dramatic effect, highlighting a particular area like a bookcase or a work of art.


Think about the type of lighting you need in different rooms. For instance, your bedroom might need ambient and task lighting; your living room might look great with a combination of accent and ambient lighting, and so on.

Bulb Type

Different light bulbs perform different tasks. They all have a place depending on your requirements. 

  • Energy-efficient lighting – CFLs (compact fluorescent bulbs) and LEDs are energy-efficient options that last longer, emit a cooler tone, and are cooler to the touch. Use these new, modern lights instead of the traditional incandescent bulbs. 
  • Halogens – Great for task lighting, halogens emit a bright, white light.
  • Incandescent Lights – These traditional light bulbs emit a warm glow and are slowly phasing out as the energy-efficient new light bulbs become more popular.


The right fixture ensures the optimization of the lighting fixtures option that you have chosen. Some common fixtures include wall mount and ceiling mount, depending on the design of your room and the light bulb you have chosen.
