Some people may also be deterred to go to a store that specializes in lighting, such as Batteries Plus Bulbs, because they think it will be more expensive, but that’s not the case, Boozer said.
As specialists, he said they have those details, so when people come to them, they can inform them of their options and the customer can make informed decisions when making purchases.
Lighting can still be customized as well, he said. Also, a lot of the halogen lights are dimmable and still put off the same white color that is more popular. Other colors are available, too.
For example, some may like a bright white in their bathroom. For areas like living rooms and dining rooms, people may prefer a soft white for a relaxing atmosphere, Boozer said.
