Choosing an LED Light Bulb
Choosing an LED light bulb from Shades of Light is an excellent way to save on energy while maintaining the distinguished style of your chandelier, pendant light, lantern or other lighting solution. LED stands for light-emitting diode, the technology that powers these efficient and long-lasting light bulbs. Unlike traditional light bulbs which are measured only in watts, a count of the energy bulbs draw, LED light bulbs are also measured in lumens, a metric of brightness. To understand which LED bulb has the correct wattage and lumen count for your hanging light, wall light or ceiling light, be sure to consult the product description of your item where this information is listed.
