Cool Looking for very low temperature light bulbs (1700K-1900K)

I want to replace my indoor lights (only used at night) with very low color temp bulbs.

On Amazon I see the minimum being 2000K.
Is there any source to get lighting below this in the 1700K-1900K range?

Ideally fluorescent lighting, hopefully not LED as it's expensive,
but if that's the only option, priority is color temp.

Trying to eliminate blue spectrum from night time lighting to help out
with sleep.

Welcome to the forums.

Don't really have an answer for your question but the following website has almost every bulb available listed. If you've got some time.... peruse thru it. 1000bulbs.com

Another option may be filtering out the blue part of the spectrum. Might try contacting these guys and see if they can suggest a solution: LEE Technical Lighting Filters - Daylight, Tungsten and Fluorescent Conversion

One more thought...running incandescent lights at lower than normal voltage will lower the actual filament temperature and might also lower the color temperature. They certainly "seem" to get warmer. A simple dimmer would do this.

You could consider what I use for a majority of my lighting which are halogen bulbs on a dimmer.
This makes for very good task lighting at full power and the color change when dimmed is easy on the eyes.
