One of the easiest ways to see a noticeable difference on your energy bills is by replacing your traditional incandescent light bulbs with LED light bulbs. If you’re like me, you may not have been a fan of the first generation of energy-efficient LED light bulbs because of their bluish tint and irregular shape, but trust me…now, saving energy has never looked so beautiful!
The new Philips Classic Glass LED light bulb not only comes in a standard shape – just like a traditional incandescent light bulb – but also comes in a variety of color temperatures: Philips Classic Glass LED light bulb – Soft White version and Philips Classic Glass LED light bulb – Daylight version.
For my home, my personal favorite is the soft white. It creates a look I love for when lighting up living spaces like my living room, kitchen and bedrooms.
On the other hand, in my paint studio, I reach for the daylight color option because “natural light” tones are key to choosing just the right color palettes for my clients.
Here is a picture of the drop zone between the garage and my kitchen. The soft white glow is just enough that I can get the look I want with or without a shade and it looks great.
As a designer, I love the look and color options of the new Philips Classic Glass LED light bulbs. As a consumer, I love that I am saving money by using 85% less energy, and as a mom, I love that I am showing my kids what can easily be done to help the environment.
The Philips LEDs are available for purchase at Home Depot for $9.97/4 pack (MSRP). Perfect for always having additional lights bulbs to spare.
