Choosing the Right Bulb for Your Fixture
With a wide range of styles and features, we make it easy to find the right light bulbs for any fixture and space. Consider the demands of your residential or commercial lighting fixture, and we'll help you choose a bulb that fits your needs:
- Base - Different fixtures accommodate different light bulb bases, so it's important to buy a bulb that matches your fixture. Common screw-in bases like E26 are popular for standard fixtures, including pendant lighting, table lamps, vanities and ceiling fans. Other fixtures like chandeliers often require E12 candelabra-style bulbs.
- Wattage - Your lighting fixture will also dictate which bulb wattage is safe to use. Most common household fixtures use 60-watt bulbs, but some fixtures and commercial spaces will have different requirements, so check your device for the recommended wattage.
- Indoor/Outdoor Use - The type of bulb you buy also depends on whether you plan to use it in an indoor or outdoor light fixture. You’ll find a selection of bulbs specifically rated for safe use in outdoor settings like security fixtures and landscape lights.
