Let's talk lighting! First let’s think about what you will be doing in the room – how bright do you want it?  Brightness is called lumens, (800 lumens is a 60W bulb). 

Then consider the color temperature of the light – do you want an invigorating blue tint or a calming yellow? Kelvins are a scale for the color of light, the higher the number the cooler (bluer) the light will appear. For reference, a candle burns at 1,900K and sunlight is 10,000K.  

DAYLIGHT BULBS: We want the most invigorating light in the kitchen, bathroom, garage (so higher lumens at least 1600 – 100 W equivalent). Also high Kelvins called Daylight (that are close to that blue invigorating light) you’ll be doing intricate projects, applying makeup and this lighting provides the greatest contrast among colors. I have here Reveal and it’s exceptional color contrast and boldness without the bluish tone of Daylight as an alternative for these rooms.
o BRIGHT WHITE Followed by dining rooms and home offices. Bright White/Cool White (4000 Kelvin):  giving rooms a whiter, energetic feel, but not quite as intense as Daylight. Here 1100 lumens would be good (75W equivalent).
o SOFT WHITE The lower lumens rein where people are chilling out, in living rooms and bedrooms. Soft White/Warm White (2700 Kelvin): Best for bedrooms and living rooms; providing a traditional warm hue, think of that nice yellowish glow, cozy. 800 lumens – 60 W equivalent.


SMART COLOR 
 The nice thing is, with some smart bulbs these days – like this one from  C by GE Smart Color Bulb you can switch between brightness and kelvins all in one bulb – so you get the best of all worlds in one bulb, that warm, bright, daylight, dimmable so various lumen output, no hub required. And that extra flexibility is important as so many of our rooms have needed to be multi-functional this year like a dining room also serving as a home office and virtual classroom.

• Battery Back Up: LED+ Battery Backup bulb gives you power over power outages. 5 hours battery powered life at 95 lumens, automatically recharges when electricity is on, 60W equivalent light output for everyday use
• LED+ Speaker bulb connects to your phone, tablet, TV or other Bluetooth® compatible device so sound streams from your light source. Sync up to ten bulbs to create wire-free, high-quality surround sound. 60 Watt equivalent light output for everyday use
There is also motion, dusk to dawn, bulbs with timers – no app required and nothing to download with these LED+ bulbs, remote controls included. 

Question: What about home accessories to bring my lighting to life? 
Update the look of any room with new lighting. We are all working from home a lot more these days so bring the convenience of office features home. Check out this workstation lamp base from Lamps Plus, you can place any lamp on top. There are two built-in USB ports for charging phones and other electronics, plus one outlet plug. And...best yet - another outlet plug gives you touch dimming control of your lamp Plug the lamp into the outlet, then touch the base to control it!

Home Improvement and Lifestyle Expert, Kathryn Emery answers the question: How Do I Buy The Right Lightbulb Room by Room?

LEDs can save about $80 per bulb on energy bills over the life of the bulb vs. incandescent bulbs, last longer & are better for the environment!  

• First you want to think about brightness which is called lumens, think about what you’ll be doing in that space (800 lumens in a 60W bulb). If you do not have enough brightness, consider changing to a brighter LED bulb. Switching a 60W bulb to a 100w replacement LED bulb not only doubles the brightness but uses about 25% of the electricity of a 60-watt incandescent bulb.
• Beyond brightness, you also want to consider the color temperature of the light. Kelvins are a scale for the color of light, the higher the number the cooler (or bluer) the light will appear. For reference, a candle burns at 1,900K and sunlight is 10,000K.  
o Typically, kitchens, bathrooms, garages/basements call for the brightest bulbs since you are doing tasks, so look for Daylight (5000+ Kelvin):  good for reading, intricate projects, or applying makeup—provides the greatest contrast among colors
o Followed by dining rooms and home offices. Bright White/Cool White (4000 Kelvin): Best in kitchens, bathrooms or garages; giving rooms a whiter, more energetic feel.
o The lower lumens rein where people are chilling out, in living rooms and bedrooms. Soft White/Warm White (2700 Kelvin): Best for bedrooms and living rooms; providing a traditional warm hue, think of that nice yellowish glow, cozy. 


Question: What else can light bulbs do? 

The nice thing is, is that a lot of smart bulbs these days – like GE Color Bulb and Smart Color Bulb you can switch between brightness and kelvins all in one bulb – so you get the best of all worlds in one bulb. 

• LED+ Color bulb changes between two everyday light temperatures (soft white and daylight) and 8 vivid colors. Perfect for parties, holidays, or creating the right moods in your home. No hub or Wi-Fi required. One remote can control additional GE LED+ Color bulbs
• Battery Back Up: LED+ Battery Backup bulb gives you power over power outages. 5 hours battery powered life at 95 lumens, automatically recharges when electricity is on, 60W equivalent light output for everyday use
• LED+ Speaker bulb connects to your phone, tablet, TV or other Bluetooth® compatible device so sound streams from your light source. Sync up to ten bulbs to create wire-free, high-quality surround sound. 60 Watt equivalent light output for everyday use
GE’s LED+ Collection also includes dusk to dawn, bulbs with motion sensors and timers built into the actual bulb!
Question: What about the latest in Fire Safety since October is National Fire Preparedness Month?

Unattended cooking is the number one of cause of home fires so equip your kitchen with the EZ Fire Spray to be prepared! It’s small size is ideal for the kitchen and easier to use than a traditional fire extinguisher. It discharges four times longer than a regular fire extinguisher, making it effective against common household fires including grease fires. The portable size and aerosol spray nozzle makes using it fast and simple for at home, on boats, RVs, and while traveling. The biodegradable formula is easy to clean up by simply wiping with a damp cloth so you don’t have to worry about making a mess indoors.
