any problem with not dimming a dimmable light??

Sorry about the weird title.

I am replacing the ceiling light in the bathroom. I have found an LED light that is the right size and "look". It claims to be "dimmable".

At this time, I don't want or need to dim the light. Rather than install a dimmer, I want to use the existing switch, and use the light at "max brightness" whenever it is on.
Are there any problems with doing that?
Thanks in advance.

No problem at all with a dimmable light. Most of them are dimmable these days anyway.

Just stay away from any kind of 'smart' bulb (unless you want to use it's smartness)... those don't like being turned on/off as much.

Oh - and I would HIGHLY recommend trying a dimmer in your bathroom. After a dishwasher and AC, I think it's the biggest improvement one can make to their own house. Having to get up at 2am and not blind yourself with the bright light makes all the difference in the world.

Be aware that a brand X LED light model may not be compatible with a brand Y dimmer or even a brand X dimmer for a different LED light model.
