Yes, Virginia, restroom light bulbs really can make a difference!

How restroom lighting can change the overall look and feel of the room, and why you should try a different light bulb.

Yes, Virginia, restroom light bulbs really can make a difference!

People want their bathroom to be clean.  In fact, not just clean, but super-clean!  Nothing will replace a regular scrub down, but something that will make it feel even cleaner, you might want to try a new bathroom light bulb.  Let me explain more by backing up a bit and presenting this question:  After the bathroom has just been cleaned, what is the one thing you can always notice when you first walk in?  To me, it's the smell.  Pine-Sol, Clorox, Windex, etc.  There's nothing quite like that fresh newly washed smell!  Likewise, the lighting in your men's room or women's room helps make you "feel" cleaner.

Most bathroom lighting in businesses and offices is fluorescent, and typically it is cool white (4100K) or soft white (3500K).  If you use standard light bulbs, those are even warmer (2700K).  I recommend you try using a restroom light bulb that is in the 5000K-6500K range.  I know, you most likely don't understand the numbers I am talking about, but here at eLightBulbs, we list the Color Temperature on all of our fluorescent products.  (note: If you click the Buy Now link on this article, you can go directly to our fluorescent bulb list filtered to the 5000K range)  

The change from warm tones to cold tones (5000K+) is great for transforming the entire room from a "dingy, dirty" feel to a sterile and clean feel.  Give it a try and see what I mean.  We did it in our bathroom when we first moved into our building, and the difference is huge.
