CFL Bulb


I have a little hutch in my living room thats controlled by a light switch. Well i updated the bulbs in it to CFL GE Reveal Bulbs and i realized there is a dimmer in the hutch. The dimmer is never touched and always on high only controlled my a switch. Can i continue to use the CFL bulbs cause they look a lot better in the hutch than regular bulbs. Thanks for the help.

you can buy dimmable cfl's as well if your so inclined for some mood lighting.

I saw those im just partial to the GE Reveal bulbs and those aren't dimmable. I like the light color of those bulbs. Thanks though.
