When selecting a light for your bedroom, living room or bathroom, you should not only consider the style and color of the fixture, but also the availability of replacement light bulbs. If Costco, Target, Wal-Mart or wherever you regularly shop does not carry a line of replacement bulbs for the fixture, consider finding a different light.
I made a critical mistake in selecting a bathroom light fixture that requires a 40 watt Type T4 E11 Base Mini Candelabra. I have not been able to locate a replacement halogen bulb at Costco, Target or Wal-Mart. I also have not been able to find one at specialty hardware stores, such as OSH and Lowe’s. I’m sure I can find one at a lighting store, but that requires me to make a special trip and I don’t have time for that right now.
