It enabled us to work in the evenings or have a social life in more pleasant surroundings. Now the choice of light bulbs is overwhelming, and we can choose from thousands of different bulb varieties.


What light bulbs to choose?


We often buy the brightest bulb because we assume it’s going to give us what we need. We may need one bight light fixture in a room, but we probably never going to use it. Simply because it gives harsh and unpleasant light. If you want to create an intimate atmosphere and conserve energy, don’t buy 75-watt bulbs. Of course, it’s useful to have some stronger bulbs in your home, but they look better installed as ceiling light fixtures than decorative floor lamps.

Tips and tricks for perfect lighting at home


One central lamp in the room will always ruin the ambiance. Don’t rely on one ceiling lamp to create a luxurious atmosphere. Make sure to buy at least two decorative lamps and place them in several parts of the room. Evening light should give you that glowing and unwinding feeling. Isn’t that the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a snug evening at home?
