As your preferred columbus ohio home remodeler, NJW has noticed antique Thomas Edison light bulbs are making a comeback despite the push for LED and CFL energy efficient bulbs. This apparent backlash has been growing for several years, and new designs for the filament bulbs are beginning to appear.

Despite their vintage appearance, antique Thomas Edison light bulbs are actually still being produced and must meet current safety regulations. There are multiple designs of the Thomas Edison light bulbs available. The antique style bulbs are reproductions of the original designs. We have noticed while doing home renovations columbus ohio, the unique filament bulbs are a designer favorite because of their soft light and gentle glow.

Their soft glow allows people to stare directly at the filaments without hurting their eyes. These vintage bulbs are as homeowners strive for unique spaces. NJW, your contractors central ohio, know a lot about unique spaces and can help you with these design elements.

Many people leave the filament bulbs exposed in light fixtures, so people have a greater chance of enjoying the warm light. Although CFL and LED light bulbs are more efficient, they are still not able to duplicate the light created by the antiqueEdisonbulbs. They can instantly transform a space to make it feel like a vintage room.

The reproduction Thomas Edison light bulbs are not the same as the traditional incandescent bulbs. The filament in the antique versions is different and can vary from the oscillating carbon style to the cage shape. The designs also include double filaments, inverted shapes, single loops, double loops and other styles. This is why homeowners and business owners opt to leave the exposed bulbs alone. They do not need to be hidden inside a lamp or other fixture.

We are hopeful with improvements being made constantly they can also improve upon the efficiency of these beautiful bulbs…then it will be the perfect marriage of design and function.
