There are so many options when it comes to the color of LED lights, so it can be difficult to know what to choose to fit the environment. This color guide can help you determine what lighting might work best for your space.
Color Temperature 2,700 K – 3,000 K is a warm white color that makes the lighting environment seem inviting and relaxing. It is best in spaces such as living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms, and restaurants that want to create an ambiance.
Color Temperature 3,000K – 4,500 K is a cool white color that creates a more friendly, welcoming, and energetic environment. This type of LED lighting is most often suggested to use in office spaces, restrooms, and entryways where you want a brighter light.
Color Temperature 5,000K – 6,500 K is a bright white light color. It is used most often in spaces such as warehouses, garages, security areas, and commercial buildings where the ambiance created is crisp, alert, sharp, and focused.
Selectable LED Color Temperatures
Sometimes a space may require one type of lighting during part of the day and another type the other half of the day. For spaces that require more than one color temperature, new LED technology provides selectable LED color temperatures that allow you to choose the color temperature and wattage based on different needs. For instance, in a 3-in-1 color temperature bulb, the temperature can be adjusted from 3,000 K to 4,000 K and up to 5,000 K whether you want cool light, warm light, or more natural light. The lights are changed by using a dimmer switch, which allows light to go from dimmer to brighter as needed.
If you are considering switching to LED lights, the convenience of being able to change color temperature could be extremely beneficial. Contact US LED to find out more about making the switch to LED lighting for many conveniences and as well as cost savings.
