An interesting article on the future of the incandescent light bulb.
Mr. Leslie touches on an important factor when choosing a light fixture and/or bulb which is something that we at AYRE Lighting have focused on when developing our bathroom wall sconces.
“Consumers generally bring habit, rather than intelligence, to their light-bulb purchases,” Mr. Leslie said. “It’s really problematic.”
Now, bulb buyers think primarily about the amount of light they need from a bulb, he explained, with the quality of the light and its suitability for the colors in a room as secondary considerations, if that. Still fewer people consider the different ways that bulbs distribute light. If you choose to wade into the waters of energy-efficient bulbs, however, these factors quickly come into play.

Quality, Color, and Output of light is a very important factor to consider when choosing a light fixture. Lucky for you, AYRE has put a lot of effort into giving you a fixture that will provide the best lighting for grooming in the bathroom. We have designed our fixtures around the light source rather than just making a pretty fixture like the rest of the market.
