What is color temperature and why is it important? Color temperature is how light appears visually and is measured in Kelvins between 1000K – 10,000K. It is incredibly vital for choosing the optimal light for a space.
Picking the best color temperature depends on the type of atmosphere that is trying to be created.
Warmer color temperatures will have a more inviting, relaxing feel that typically use more orange and yellow tones that range from 2700K - 3000K. Best for pendants, wall lanterns, ambient lighting, residential indoor lighting.
Cooler color temperatures will be more bright, vibrant ambience that typically use more blues tints for activities like working or doing tasks, range from 4000K – 5000K. Best for basements, garages, work environments.
Daylight Deluxe ranges at 6000K-65000K reflects what color temperature of the sun produces in blue tones, typically used where more alert environment needed such as security lighting, garages, task lighting.
