Illuminate your home with E14 socket light bulbs
Without the right type of light bulb, you'll be stuck when it comes to lighting up your home. There are so many different types of bulbs on the market today, it's easy to get confused and spend money on the wrong product. E14 socket light bulbs are actually the most common type of socket in the UK, so it's a fairly safe bet that you'll have at least one socket of this type around your home, but it's always worth having a quick check before you get shopping.
Shopping for the right bulb
E14 light sockets are usually found in smaller lights, so we're talking about lamps and chandelier types. Once you're sure that this is the size socket you're buying for, you'll also need to think about whether it's a screw or a bayonet fitting.
You'll also want to consider wattage. The higher the wattage, the brighter the light. Think about how you'll be using the light, and where it is in your home to decide what's best for you.
Shapes and types
Different shaped bulbs will naturally fit into certain light fittings, and having an understanding of what shapes are appropriate for your lamp will help narrow down your choice. The great thing about shopping for a specifically shaped bulb is that you can use it to create a certain look or feel.
Alternatively, check out your options when it comes to features like incandescent, halogen or LED E14 light bulbs.
Cool or warm bulbs
To create an instant mood, shop for a bulb in a specific colour. Clear glass is one popular option, but there are other colours out there. Red, silver, white and yellow are all other ways to mix things up when it comes to ambience.
