LED replacement lamps

We replaced all of the 921 incandescent bulbs with warm white GRV T10 wedge bulbs from Amazon. Installation was a snap and we love the fact that they are cool and not welding themselves to the fixtures (as the incandescent bulbs did). Be we are dissatisfied with (1) the color (warmth) of the light and (2) the brightness of the lights. We've actually gone back to incandescent bulbs in areas for reading or applying makeup.

So... Are there other LED bulbs that address our concerns? Seems that most produce 250 lums. Anyone know of a bulb that takes that up a notch? As for color temp: Any options or opinions?

Thanks!

What color temp lamps did you buy? incandescent lamps are about 2500 to 3000 K (kelvin).
I prefer 5000 to 6000K color light. That's what most mfg's call cool white.

If you want to match the color of incandescent lamps you need to stay in the 2500 to 3000K range.
