MATCH THE FIXTURE STYLE TO THE STYLE OF THE SPACE YOU ARE CREATING
Match the color temperature to your space. Understanding Kelvin temperature (K) ranges makes it easier to choose lighting that gives you the look and feel you want. On the lower spectrum, 2700K to 3000K, Soft or Warm White ranges in shades of yellow to red. 3500K and 4100K refers to Bright or Neutral White light that emits a more neutral light devoid of any yellow or blue tints. While Cool white light ranges from 5000K to 6500K with varying shades of blue, which brings us into the Daylight color temperature of light that mimics daylight.
Warm white: Considered cozy lighting as it has more of a yellow or orange glow, soft on the eyes. Best suited for bedrooms, living rooms and dining areas.
Cool white: Also know as bright white can have a bluish tint that stimulates alertness for reading and detail-oriented tasks. Best suited for kitchens, bathrooms and garages.
Neutral white: Mimics daylight, which helps to see colors as they truly are. Ideally suited for bedrooms, closets and bathrooms to help people get ready for the day.
Tunable White: TW lighting gives you the option of controlling the color temperature of a light with a remote or external control. There are many benefits of being able to change the lighting temperature of a space from one end of the spectrum to the other.
RGB light: These color changing lights are ideal for decorative or architectural lighting. Choose a specific color to create a special mood or to add a sense of fun for an occasion.
