What are E27 bulbs?

The E27 light bulb is named after its inventor Thomas Edison and was patented in 1890. E27 light bulbs feature a screw base with a right-handed thread, with the screw socket measuring 27 millimetres. When you combine the first initial of the inventor’s name, with the diameter of the screw base, you get the name E27.

E27 light bulbs are commonly used for domestic and indoor lighting, such as pendant lights, but can be used in business premises like shops and restaurants as well.

Types of E27 LED bulbs

E27 bulbs are available in a huge range of styles, including ball, globe, stick, candle, PAR, tubular and pear. Because they are so diverse in terms of looks, it’s easy to find one to match any lamp style, or room.

Many people now opt to have an E27 with a retro feel, with a coloured finish and visible filament. There are plenty to choose from when it comes to the E27 LED bulbs, but no matter what your style, we’re sure that we have an E27 LED bulb to match your taste.

What colours of E27 light bulbs can I get?

The colour of light bulbs, except for special colour-changing LED lights, is measured in kelvin. The number of kelvin indicates the colour tone that your E27 light bulb has.

Light bulb colours range from a cooler tone, which has a blue hue, to a warmer toned bulb which has more red.

  • Very Warm - 1700k-2400k. This bulb temperature gives a warm and cosy feel, ideal for bedrooms and living rooms.
  • Warm - 2400k-2700k. This tone is ideal for restaurants and hotels, as well as other areas of the home like hallways and dining areas.
  • Warm White - 3000k. A slightly warm tone which can be used anywhere in the home.
  • Natural White - 4000k. An all-purpose lighting temperature which mimics daylight and can be used in most spaces.
  • Cool White - 6000K-6500K. This crisp, clear light is ideal for use in kitchens and commercial spaces, where it’s important to see exactly what you’re doing.

Are E27 LED bulbs dimmable

E27 LED bulbs can be dimmable, as long as you buy the right type of bulb. When you select your bulbs, it should specify, either on the website or the product packaging, whether it’s compatible with dimmable light fittings and light switches.

Dimmable E27 LED light bulbs are a great choice for your lighting set-up, as they give you greater control over how bright your space is, and how much energy you consume. However, for LED bulbs you will need to make sure you choose an LED-compatible dimmer switch, as traditional dimmer switches are likely to flicker, buzz, or give off poor lighting.
