BR30 vs A19 Bulbs for Artist Studio Space Lighting
I want to use the NorthLux 95 CRI E26 A19 LED bulbs in track lighting for a small space of 5 x 6 feet. How many bulbs would you recommend? Can you recommend a source or fixture that would be appropriate for the space?
Based on the details provided, we estimate that your 5x6 space would benefit from roughly 2,389 lumens to be properly illuminated for artwork creation.
As each of the NorthLux™ 95 CRI BR30 LED Bulb for Artwork & Studio products offers 800 lumens, we estimate that three bulbs could work well for the track lighting in your studio.
While there is not a specific light fixture that we could recommend, it might be helpful to know that our BR30 products are compatible with the standard E26-base track lighting systems that you might find in your local hardware stores.
Are there pros and cons to ordering the NorthLux 95 CRI E26 A19 LED Bulb instead? I see it is not dimmable, and the BR30 bulb is dimmable, but otherwise, I don't understand how they would differ in application. Can I use the E26 fixture with this also?
We're happy to confirm that the A19 bulb is compatible with E26 fixtures and that the performance will be largely the same as the BR30 bulb. The primary benefit offered by the BR30 bulbs is the narrow beam angles, which can be quite useful for track lighting systems with directional lighting.
However, if the NorthLux™ 95 CRI E26 A19 LED Bulb for Art & Studio product winds up not working well in your space, it might be helpful to know that we have a 30-day return policy. Simply reach out to let us know, and we will issue a prepaid return label.
