I never thought too much about how important light bulbs are to my office and my bedroom (or any other room for that matter.) That is until I was sent the GE Reveal® light bulbs and was challenged to makeover a room with the new light bulbs.
A Little Bit About GE reveal® Light Bulbs
- GE reveal® light bulbs come in various size and options.
- Available in energy-efficient halogen and compact fluorescents and LEDs were just released
- New reveal® LED bulbs will filter out yellow rays and enhance the colors you have in your home
I can tell you all day about how well the GE reveal® light bulbs get rid of the yellow in your house but I think it’s better to show you. First I’ll start with the GE photos:
My GE reveal® Light Bulb Makeover
I chose to makeover my office and bedroom lighting. My office is where I take a lot of my photos for my blog and they do often turn out yellowish. Here is the before and after of my office. I did not adjust the photos in any way other than to size them for uploading.
And here is the after photo.
There is a big difference in the coloring. The before photo definitely looks more yellow. I was only sent 4 bulbs and that lamp takes 5, so in the after photo, there is one less bulb.
And here is the makeover of my bedroom.
And after I changed the bulb to the GE reveal® light bulb. This makeover was interesting because the room and the lampshade have a lot of yellow tones in them so I was very curious about how it would work.
You can see that the light coming from the lamb is a lot less yellow, so everything around it looks brighter and more crisp.
GE reveal® Light Bulb Makeover Results
In both cases, I saw that using the GE reveal® bulbs made the room appear brighter and the colors were more white. The photos seem more crisp and less blurry in the after photos. I used the same camera for the before and after, so the light bulb seems to have made a difference.

Disclosure: I was sent a 4-pack of GE reveal® light bulbs to do my lighting makeover. All opinions are 100% my own. No other compensation was received.
Do you think about how lighting will affect the colors in a room? Have you tried the GE reveal® light bulbs and what were your thoughts?
