Your house reflects your design sensibilities down to the last throw pillow. The nesting dolls from a trip to Scandinavia are all lined up on the corner of your dresser, and the vintage vase you found at the flea market is brimming with fresh-cut flowers. There’s a place for everything and everything is in its place.

So, you’re done decorating.

But are you?

Lighting Matters

Unless you’ve already installed new lighting to match the mood for each space, the answer is no.

GE has introduced a new line of high definition lighting that matches the right light to each space in your house.

Maybe you’re skeptical of applying an adjective usually associated with TVs to your lighting system, but high definition light is a real thing! GE’s HD bulbs have a higher CRI, or Color Rendering Index, which means they deliver greater color contrast and boldness than a standard bulb.

Making the change to HD light bulbs is an easy task, made even easier thanks to GE’s room-by-room system. Just think: with a few twists, you can completely transform any space in your house. GE’s HD bulbs come in three different tones, and each of those tones corresponds to a room that would most benefit from that kind of light.

You can use your lights to set the mood you’re going for in each individual area, whether it’s a clean, natural feel or a more intimate atmosphere. 


For instance, REVEAL® is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, craft and hobby rooms, and any other space where details matter and clarity counts. It’s GE’s best light because it’s HD+, thanks to a rare mineral called Neodymium, which, when added to the light bulb, creates a stronger separation in the way your eye views reds and greens. Colors appear more vivid and whites even more brilliant.


Are you going for a more cool and energizing vibe? Reach for the REFRESH™ bulb. The invigorating daylight effect brings out the best in cooler colors and is made for home offices, playrooms, and laundry rooms. You can even improve on Mother Nature herself and bring these bulbs outside. Truly an asset to any active space, REFRESH™ lights will keep you going.


And when you’re enjoying your down time, turn on RELAX™ bulbs. The warm light emphasizes richer colors like red and gold, which makes it perfect for cozy and low-key spaces such as bedrooms, dining rooms, and family rooms. The soft white light of the RELAX™ bulb will make every moment more comfortable.

Not only will these lights set the mood, they’ll help your wallet in the long run. GE’s HD LED bulbs last for 13 years, and you can save as much as $81 on energy per bulb. You’ll have a positive impact on the environment, plus room in the budget for some blankets to go with those pillows.
