The Angle of Diffusion of Light Bulbs
The bulbs have a more or less broad dissemination depending on angle. When you buy your bulb, so you should not choose any angle: indeed, the result will not be the same with a bulb with an angle of 30 ° or 180 °!
A Wide Angle of Dissemination
Want to light up a room in its entirety? You will have to choose a bulb with a rather wide angle of diffusion : between 180 ° and 360 °.
The light will not be localized: your room will be fully lit.
A Small Spreading Angle
Do you prefer light an element especially in your room? In this case, need you a localized and focused light. We recommend that you choose a bulb with an angle of 30 ° to 120 °.
For example, a closed corner is perfect for a bedside table: you don’t need a bulb that can the entire room with a lamp of this kind.
Before you buy your bulb, we invite you to think about the result you want to get: a perfectly lit room or to focus on a very specific place.
You to choose according to your needs and your lamp!
A standard bulb diffuses the light most often with a 360 ° angle because the width of the beam is often determined by the shape of your bulb. It is often useful to find his light bulb by shape .
