Light Quality & You

Lumens is the amount of brightness a bulb emits. The higher the number the brighter the bulb. When planning your light arrangement, It is important to consider the brightness of the bulb both in regards to placement and spacing between your bulbs. If you are lighting a work space you may find you need higher lumen bulbs in order to adequately see your work. However, if you are lighting a living room or a den you may want lower lumens so that the space is peaceful.
Want the best of both worlds? Consider dimmable bulbs. Our dimmable bulbs work with a variety of dimming switches and will allow you to choose the perfect brightness level for every occasion.
