Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Dimmable light bulbs are a great way to provide multiple lighting intensities in a single bulb. Some people like the idea of dimmable bulbs for creating a slightly darkened room to watch movies, for example. A dimmable light bulb’s brightness can be set anywhere between its maximum lumens setting and completely dark. Before you purchase dimmable light bulbs, make sure that the socket can work with bulbs that dim. You’ll also need a dimming switch. If you try to use an LED dimming bulb with an older dimming switch, it may cause problems with flickering. Some dimmable light bulbs include smart technology, using an app to control the dimming level.
