Those dreary days when you could only pick bulbs/lights based on the socket, the shape and its consumption are gone! And although in those days light colour was not a purchasing criterion for incandescent bulbs, they most certainly are for present-day LED lighting.

An interesting point about light and its colour is that it can set your current mood and determine how to feel at different spaces.

However in words of Lance Bresnan- an LED lighting installation specialist in Ipswich states clearly:-

“ Though lighting does indeed help set the mood, it makes you wonder if the colour temperature can also influence your performance? Truth be told, it sure does.” 

Digging Deeper Into The Concept Of “Colour Temperature.”

In lucid terms- “Colour Temperature” refers to the colour of the light that is gauged in Kelvin. The ones closer to the natural lighting are known as Warm Light Emission while those closer to blue or other artificial lighting are the White Light Emission.

Moreover, the variance in temperature is also important in such emissions. Warmer light lies between the range 2700-3000K, whereas cooler lights exist between 5500-6000K. The rest in between is known as the natural light.

A Lucid Segregation:- 

Daniel Quinn:- an LED lighting upgrade electrician says clearly:-

  • “For Extra Light.”

It is best to go for a colour temperature measuring greater than the standard 2700K. This proves perfect for mood lighting- thus giving the ambience of candlelight. If you have a romantic date planned, then look to install LED measuring <2700K.

Ideal locations for such lights would be lounges, restaurants, living rooms and even the bedroom. 

  • “Warm Light Ambience.”

The LED colour temperature in-between 2700-3300K. It gives out a white light colour ambience which helps create a cosy and comfortable environment wherever it is installed. This gives out a warm white light accent in rooms having neutral while or basic white lighting. 

They work best for hotel rooms, gastronomy and even your household.

  • “Neutral White LED light.”

This consists of a colour temperature between 3300-5300K. It gives out the neutral light colour in areas requiring a high demand for concentration and visual performance.

The best thing about this light shade is that it reveals details which normal white colours would not.

Such lights work well in office spaces, retail outlets, households and even supermarkets. So if you are an owner of a commercial set-up, then these lights are best suited.

  • “Lastly, Daylight LEDs.”

This consists of a colour temperature that’s >5300K, and they work remarkably in specific workspaces that deal with a particular kind of task. Installing such daylight LEDs ensures better concentration and proper performance.

The USP of these lights is that they provide wonderful contrast amongst the colours and guarantees a quality visual appeal.

They work best at hospitals, industry, laboratories and even schools.

To Cap It Off:- 

Hopefully, now you have a clear picture of colour temperature and which works best where. If you have an installation requirement or want more information about LED lights, then contact LED lighting electricians and know everything there is to know.

However, when selecting the right one, always take time in researching. And only go for the ones that have a prominent market stature along with impressive client feedback.
