The Importance of Color Temperature
Different lightbulbs emit different color temperatures and each can impact a space differently; the higher the Kelvin, the cooler the light, the lower the Kelvin, the warmer the light. And no matter the option you go with, the color temperature will completely impact how a space feels and functions. Whether you’re looking to light a warehouse or something cozier, like a restaurant, color temperature will play a huge role.
Warmer tones are popular in living spaces, or rooms where people convene. Think living and bedrooms, or restaurants and coffee shops. Up to 3000K, these lights will offer a cozy, warm hue. Warmer colors are more flattering on clothing and typically make people feel relaxed. If you’re looking to create a comfortable and inviting environment, a warmer temperature is ideal.
Cooler tones are brighter and more stimulating, and typically seen in offices and other workspaces. They offer clear illumination and are safer in areas requiring manual labor—think manufacturing facilities and warehouses. From 3100K and up, you’ll find cool light tones, perfect for environments requiring energy and focus.
