Great lighting can make your house feel warm and inviting, modern and clean, cozy and relaxing, or bright and energizing. The key is picking the perfect lightbulbs. Energy-efficient LED bulbs come in a variety of lumens, shapes, and colors. This guide will help you find the perfect lighting for your home.

Daylight Bulbs

Daylight bulbs provide bright lighting similar to natural daylight. Because LED bulbs consume less energy, these standard shaped Amazon Basics bulbs only use 14 watts, but put out 1400 lumens of light (the equivalent of 100 watts). Choose daylight bulbs for rooms where you’re active and alert, like home gyms or offices.

Soft White Bulbs

Soft white bulbs provide warm, comfortable light for bedrooms, living spaces, and dining areas. These LED Philips bulbs have 800 lumens (a 60-watt equivalent), but use just 8.5 watts of energy. They also last ten times longer than halogen or incandescent bulbs for an expected lifetime of 15,000 hours.

For a Vintage Look

The rising popularity of LED means these energy-efficient bulbs come in just as many shapes and styles as traditional bulbs. For a vintage look in decorative lighting fixtures, try these LED Edison-style filament bulbs. They provide 520 lumens (equivalent to 40 watts) of light, and are dimmable to 20% with an LED dimmer.
