CFL Bulbs

Unhappy with the color of Compact Fluorescent Lamps?  When you are purchasing bulbs look at the Color Temperature (measured in Kelvins [K], the higher the number the cooler, “bluer”, the light is).  A Sylvania Soft White Bulb has a rating of 2850K.  Newer bulbs are starting to get warmer colors.
