Ideal light, ideal kelvin


By BizLED Bureau

April 1, 2015: LED lights come in a range of colours. Bulbs that give off a soft, yellowish light are considered warm, while those that emit blue light are considered cool. Light colour is measured in kelvin (K), and the higher the Kelvin, the cooler the light, which means the higher the color temperature, the cooler the light gets, and the lower the color temperature, the light gets warmer.

Warm color temperatures (2000K to 3500K)

Homes look good with warm-toned light because usually people decorate their homes in warm earth color like different shades of red, orange or yellow. These colors are enhanced in warm lights. People also look better in warm lights.

Cool color temperatures (4000K to 4500K)

Some people like cool color temperatures that have neutral tones. These are particularly used in offices, which are usually color temperatures of 4000K or higher used as task lighting in offices. Higher color temperatures has one more advantage; it can enhance homes with cooler color schemes like whites and blues.

Full spectrum color temperatures (5000K to 6500K)

The very high color temperatures are less used in homes. These are called ‘full spectrum’ or ‘daylight’. Color temperatures of 5000K to 6500K are usually look like the the color of light outdoors on a sunny day. While these color temperatures are not suitable for homes, they are good for shops, offices and other commercial places.

  1. I have to disagree with you on this one. More and more evidence is coming out on how harmful blue light is for outdoor lights.
