5 Unusual Light Bulbs for Exposed Fixtures

Exposed light bulbs are great in the office or the kitchen. It's a trend that's here to stay, but if you're sick of the Edison bulb and want to give a fixture new life in your home, here's five unusual bulbs that are guaranteed to make any space brighter.

Diamond bulb: This bulb by Eric Therner is incredibly beautiful with the lights on and off. Unfortunately, this bulb is $50+ dollars each, but if you've got a little extra to spend then this is a great choice (Pictured above from Eric Therner's website, $51.80 each)

Radio Tube: If you like the vintage look, but want to try a new shape, check out the Radio Tube. It could easily replace the standard candelabra in a large chandelier or hang from a pendant light. (Pictured above at top left, from 1000 Bulbs, $3.98 each)

Silver bowl globes: I've always thought globe bulbs were hideous, but check out these silver bowl bulbs. Much more trendy and the metallic coating casts a softer light. They're also available in a standard shape. (Pictured above at top right from 1000 Bulbs, $1.67 each. Standard bulb size is available for $1.99)

Faceted: If you can't afford the diamond bulb, but can't get enough of the chiseled look - then check out faceted vanity bulbs. They're less than $10 a piece and come in both micro and macro sized facets. (Pictured above at bottom right from Amazon, $8.29)

Pastel pink: Normally I would never pick a colored bulb, but these pastel pink bulbs by Slyvania are great for a little girl's room. (Pictured above at bottom left from Slyvania, $3.95 each)
