When choosing the right lighting for your home, you not only need to think about the fixtures but also the bulbs that will go in them. There are many different types of light bulbs available right now, varying in brightness, wattage, energy efficiency and more. Make sure you weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each before you make your decision.
Incandescent light bulbs are the most traditional bulbs on the market today. They are the least-expensive option, and they are still the bulbs that are most commonly used in homes. The light provided by standard incandescent bulbs has a yellow-white tone, and it appears warm and natural. These bulbs can be used with a dimmer so that their brightness can be adjusted as needed for the time of day, the room, the occasion and the fixture itself.
