Not the proper led bulbs, but hopefully they will be bright enough. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07514G8HL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 I just dont know why its so hard or impossible to buy a powerful e14 led bulb?

There going tobe used in this fitting and thats the worst thing about leds and those kind of fitting, the bulbs are poor at downwards lighting.. So you need a much brighter led bulb to achieve this.

I would have thought those would be even worse than the filament style ones at downward light as the bottom half of the whole bottom half of the light bulb is solid meaning they will only send light straight up or sideways!

I received the bulbs today and Im pretty impressed as I tried them in another light fitting similar to the 1 that I will be fitting them into, but the fitting isn't up yet...I use the old type of bulb in this light fitting, the 42watt(60watt equivalent) halogen bulb. I have installed 2 of the new bulbs with the old bulbs and theres not much difference with the new ones only being slightly brighter, but noticeably whiter then the halogen bulbs... I think the led bulbs are ok at lighting up the floor, but cant really tell very well in the daylight so I'll let you know later.

Ive tried to take a picture to show you the difference but both types of bulbs have come out the same.

The bulbs with red rings are the old halogen bulbs

Well Im presently surprised these bulbs give 360 degree of light or as good as the old incandescent bulbs with light fittings that point upwards, the only downside is that they not as nice looking and are taller with a tint of blue/purple in the pattern on the celling...

So these are the bulbs you want if your looking for a e14 60watt led equivalent to replaced the old incandescent bulb, as these led bulbs are slightly brighter and whiter and they light up the floor area extremely well if using up facing fittings. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07514G8HL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
