Nothing touches up a room like special kinds of lighting which add a decorative
element to the living space. That's why we make all kinds of decorative
light bulbs that will make an impact almost anywhere they're used. Most
people are familiar with chandelier bulbs which mimic the look of a candle
generally have two different bases, medium (household base) and candelabra which
is the smaller or E12 base. You'll need to check your fixture or current
bulb to know which one you have already. The "B"
shape was one of the first designs and continues to be the one most people
use. They fit in almost any light fixture, but one of the most common
places they're used are in chandeliers, table lamps, sconce lighting and a
myriad of other places. Because of the small size, it gave
designers more flexibility in creating fixtures that would be smaller as well.
There are different variations which are known generally as B10, C7, torpedo, bent tip,
flame type, flicker bulbs and globes.
Incandescent lamps are the type that were developed earliest of any of the other
kinds and some of these became decorative light
bulbs. There are some various colors and sizes as well, so it's important to
identify these correctly with the right wattage, base and color on occasion.
These are some of the aspects of these lamps you'll need to know if you call in
or if you're looking for them on our web site. In our online shopping cart,
they are grouped in logical shapes of decorative. Find the shape you have
and the wattage then you should be most of the way there in knowing exactly what
bulb you have. In determining the shape of decorative globe light bulbs, you will need to know the diameter of the globe at it's largest point. If
it's 5 inches, then it's measured in 1/8ths of an inch, so that would be 40/8 or
5 inches. That means that you have a
G40 globe. It's that simple and this measuring system holds true for
many other products in lighting.
Lately, people have been concerned about the kind of light they're working
under or living under. That's why so many people are turning to what is
called full spectrum lighting. The term full spectrum is most often used when
referring to fluorescents that simulate natural outdoor light. By definition,
virtually all fluorescent light bulbs are full spectrum in that they contain
some of all colors in their spectral range. Full spectrum fluorescents are a
great option to get better natural lighting in standard shapes, but for
decorative light bulbs, it's the
Chromalux decorative full spectrum. It's an decorative incandescent with special
coatings that has the warmer tones filtered out. However, the term "full spectrum"
is primarily used when referring to those lamps that fall into the white to
blue/white color temperature range. Most full spectrum incandescent light
bulbs use a blue coating which you can see when you look at it unlit.
