How to choose the right light bulb?
You should pay attention to the lighting, the type of bulb and suitable power. Wonderlamp.shop recommends the use of energy-saving light bulbs (CFLs) and LEDs, which are energy-efficient and therefore help to save energy and the environment.
The light intensity or luminous flux is measured in lumens, symbolized as lm. In this sense, we recommend 800-1100lm for ceiling lamps and 200-450lm for table lamps, depending on whether more or less light is needed. You can review the following correlation table.
LEDs: just as efficient as CFLs, but can last up to three times longer. Offer the same look as incandescent, more efficient, less hot to the touch, last a long time.
Compact Florescent Bulbs (CFLs): 75% less energy than an incandescent bulb, last longer, usually emit a cooler tone, but you can find them in a range of brightness levels and temperatures.
Halogen: give off a bright, white light, similar to natural daylight, use 10-20% less energy than an incandescent bulb.
Incandescent: traditional, old type, produce a warm, glowing light but start to phase out in favour of more energy-efficient options.
Types of lighting - Colour temperature - Which one should I choose?
Colour temperature is only a relative measure; it is expressed in kelvin, symbolized as K (formerly called kelvin degree). It is defined as the comparison of its colour in the light spectrum with the light that will be emitted by a dark object (black). Colour temperature is only measured for white lighters in warm, neutral or cool shades.
Warm white (2700ºK - 3500ºK)
The warm white light is the lighting that transmits more comfort, relaxation and warmth in the home. It is the right lighting to light living rooms, rest areas, bedrooms or hallways.
All Wonderlamp.shop light bulbs provide a nice and pleasant warm light when they are switched on (switched on at 100% brightness <0.2s). They are perfect to illuminate any environment in a cosy and comfortable way. The LED technology ensures minimum consumption with energy savings of up to 80%, so they are perfect for replacing conventional light bulbs.
Day light (3500ºK - 5000ºK)
The day light, gives a neutral lighting, is the perfect for lighting any home environment in a high light efficiency, such as kitchens, bathrooms and study or reading rooms. At a professional level it is ideal for lighting commercial premises (shops) and offices, since this type of light enhances the colours and generates a lot of brightness.
All Wonderlamp.shop light bulbs provide a nice, pleasant neutral light or daylight when switched on (switched on at 100% brightness <0.2s). The LED technology ensures minimum consumption with energy savings of up to 80%, so they are perfect for replacing conventional light bulbs.
Cold white (5000ºK - 6500ºK)
Cold white light is characterized by a whiter-blue tone and is recommended for very dynamic environments, where there is a lot of movement such as commercial premises or very dark areas. It is also widely used in outdoor areas and facades of buildings or shops. This type of light is equivalent to a very sunny or even cloudy day.
All Wonderlamp.shop light bulbs provide a very intense cold light, very bright when switched on (switched on at 100% brightness <0.2s). The LED technology ensures minimum consumption with energy savings of up to 80%, so they are perfect for replacing conventional light bulbs.
