Light Guide

1. Select the brightness.

Bulb brightness is measured in lumens, not watts. Compare the watts you’re used to with the lumens you’ll need to match the brightness. The higher the lumen number, the brighter the light.

2. Choose the color.

Light color is measured on the Kelvin (K) scale. Lower K numbers mean warmer, yellowish light. Higher K numbers mean cooler, bluer light. Look for “Light Appearance” in the Lighting Facts label on the package.
