Do anyone find they like the older style fixtures now? « on: January 18, 2020, 02:43:00 PM » Author: Cole D.
I used to not like the older style light fixtures, such as U-bent glass bathroom fixtures, drum style ceiling fixtures, and bedroom fixtures with the square wavy glass shades. But lately, I notice I seem to like these fixtures for some reason, and I think it's neat that they still sell them. I think as these fixtures get older, they will be appreciated more. I guessing these styles came around in the 1950s so they are getting to be historical eventually, I think, just as antique light fixtures from the 1930s-40s and before are considered antique and desirable now.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

I think it's all about nostalgia ! Back in the day these old fixtures weren't anything special, but now that were older, seeing them brings back memories of places and people from our pasts .

And they were better made and not cheap junk from a company that is "here today and not gone tomorrow" and took pride in their products.

I use to have drum fittings around the house, both in the bathroom and kitchen, but I prefer open fixtures now.
I use to have a fluorescent drum fitting in the bathroom, but wanted to incorporate a night light into it that would be connected to my outside lighting circuit, but their wasn’t the room to do it in the original fitting.
So when I did an LED conversion I went with a rather unconventional set up shown in the photo below.
