How many light bulbs does your house need?

DH and I have just added up how many light bulbs the various applainces need in our house and I am staggered!
Off the top of my head I would have said about 12. But actually it's more that 4 times that! Most of them in the kitchen what with all the congealed concealed lighting etc.
I hasten to add they are not all on at once...

fishie this is our problem - all these LED little things are sooo dim! That's why we have loads in the kitchen.

Katisha Mon 31-Aug-09 20:50:20

I am counting bulbs in appliances like the cooker hood (vain attempt to justify)

84 shock

I hasten to add they are all low energy and not all on at once.

However in the studio we have 280-odd (and most of them are forty feet up and I have to put up scaffolding to change the buggers) hmm

teenytinypontipine Mon 31-Aug-09 20:51:48

84! shockeroo

sherby Mon 31-Aug-09 20:52:08

I am really feeling my lack of lightbulbs now

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Mon 31-Aug-09 20:52:18

8-10. oh but if i include lamps, then 14 or so, but i usually have them on instead of other lights.

fishie Mon 31-Aug-09 20:52:46

katisha i love our cooker hood, it provides the only decent source of light.

i stood in ikea lighting dept yesterday and stamped my feet, demanding to have something which would floodlight my dinner. got some weirdy answer and another bloody led.
