Why should I get my old vintage light restored or repaired?

Updated: Apr 23

If you have an old vintage lamp or antique light, you should consider getting it repaired and restored. Old lamps may still work but they could have some hidden issues which could be dangerous.

There are lots of reasons why you should consider repairing and restoring your old vintage and antique lamps. Repairing old lamps is a great way to preserve the original character of old light fittings and it's good for the planet too.

Here are six good reasons why you should get your old lamps fixed, instead do buying new:

1. Old wiring can be dangerous

Overtime the insulation on wiring can breakdown, degrade and become brittle which could potentially cause the inner copper wires to become exposed which could lead to an electrical shock hazard or even cause a fire!

2. Old components & electrical parts in old lamps may not be up to modern electrical standards

3. Old bulb holders might not work with modern LED bulbs

4. Less waste going to landfill

5. Maintain original character & charm

6. Good for your pocket
