R14 flood light bulbs with intermediate E17 base or standard in 25 or 40 watts. Sylvania or Westinghouse brand.

When it comes to lighting an area with small flood lights, this bulb has been a standard for decades.  There are many variations in this lamp that has made it so popular with furniture makers and designers.  The reason they often choose the R14 flood is because of it's very small size and short overall length as well.  While they're not unusual from the standpoint of what they look like, there are a couple of wattages to choose from and two different bases.  The wattages are 25 or 40 watt and sometimes called the 25R14 or 40R14 flood light.  They fit almost anywhere, including the small eyeball fixtures which can turn in almost any direction used in china cabinets or curio cabinets.  The base choices are a standard medium base and the intermediate base which is also known as an E17 base.  The intermediate base is larger than a candelabra (E12) and smaller than a medium (E26) or household base.  If you have these in your home or in an office, you'll appreciate the R14 light which gives off a pleasing golden glow which doesn't look like anything else in the fixture.

For most furniture cabinets, they are used in recessed lighting with a 2 inch opening and can be dimmed with a standard incandescent dimmer.  In many types of lighting applications, the dimming capability is what makes it a wonderful choice for things that you may be highlighting adding an extra level of expression.  The places where the R14 flood light bulbs can be used are endless and sometimes even includes elevator lighting as a popular option.  Almost anywhere that a small flood lamp is required, the R14 flood light is a great choice.  In some cases where people want to get more light or a brighter light, then it probably makes sense to upgrade to a halogen PAR14.  The PAR14 is the same physical size as an R14 flood, but has a more intense beam and white light.  The R14 is 1.75 inches across the face if you're measuring it for identification purposes.  The overall length is 2.6 inches making it one of the most compact light sources still available today.  The common code for these lamps is something like 25R14N/FL with the "N" standing for the intermediate base.  The medium base version has a slightly different code which would be something like 40R14/FL.  So whenever you see an N in the code, you know that you have the E17 intermediate base.

Remember that there are a couple of types of incandescent R14 flood light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  The brands we have are the Sylvania and Westinghouse versions.  Whatever type you have, you will be getting a longer life incandescent than what you're used to, getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of incandescent flood light bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  This means that you'll never have to be without the right light bulb, especially these types of more uncommon ones.  If you need help identifying an incandescent bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
