Yeah, I had attic access. Without it I'm sure it's quite a bit trickier.
The LEDs I got, Philips Warm Glow, dim way down. I think it's 3% at the minimum. They're also designed to dim with incandescent-like hues, which they do a pretty accurate job of. They're not perfect but I'd recommend them over incandescent bulbs any day.
