Spanish light-fittings and bringing lamps from the UK

Post Posted: Wed Feb 21, 2007 7:45 pm

Really stupid last-minute sort of question this, but are Spanish light bulbs the same bayonet fitting as in the UK? We're deciding whether to take any of our lamps over and obviously there's not much point if we can't get new bulbs for them. I realise I have bever examined a Spanish lamp - well you don't do you? We also have a few IKEA lamps with screw fittings - would we get bulbs for those?

Spanish bulbs are screw in not bayonet.

Some of the UK supermarkets do sell bayonet style but, unless you are in an area with a large Brit population, they can be very hard to find.

Hi pconl

General rule of thumb is anything you plug in buy here. At least then you can take it back if it stops working. Ikea is in Spain too, depending on which region you will be in. I generally stock up on bulbs when I go to Ikea as they are cheaper than most.

Good luck with the move
