Looking for some in put on inside lighting. We have a x23f and the lights are just to loud. Is there any bulbs out there that are a softer light?

Could you just remove one of the bulbs in your double bulb fixtures?

What lights are too bright? Are they all too bright? As mentioned if they are the double light fixtures just open them open and remove one bulb. If you are thinking you want a dimmer light in the bathroom, you can get a G4 base LED light. What I have found to make them fit nicely is to give the prongs a little bend (curve) so they stay in a wedge style base.

Here is one I have used in the TT, I thought it was to dim for my taste, for general lighting, but I had hoped to find a duplex switch so I could use it as a night light in bathroom.

We had one fixture that we wanted a little less light from so we put masking tape on the inside of the cover. If you were in our TT you wouldn't notice it unless you knew to look for it. You can use colored tape for an effect.

If you try it, lay the tape in strips next to each other with no gaps or overlapping, and cut the strips longer than the cover. After all the tape is in place, trim the edges.

In some of my fixtures I replaced the two standard size "921", 17.9 watt incandescent bulbs with a pair of smaller "194", 4.6 watt bulbs that are the type that go in the marker lamps on the outside of the TT. They are considerably dimmer but fine for me in some areas. Use a lot less electricity, too.

Take a look at superbrightleds.com
They have different color lights. We switched all of our lights to LEDs we love the light it is more of a natural lighting and the battery life is noticably extended. They are also much more durable. The drawback is they are more expense.

In the bedroom only, we replaced a light with a red bulb. I know that sounds weird but it has helped alot. It's not enough to read by though. I'm thinking about getting a small cheap lamp for my end table. One that takes a 25 watt bulb.
