LED Bulbs come in the choice of three color temperatures, but what does ‘color temperature’ mean? Check our Colour Guide and find out…
LED Colour Guide
Don’t worry too much, as it is quite simple to understand. In basic terms, the ‘color temperature is the color of the light source. You see, not all light sources are the same. The easiest way to show this is to compare lighting from a bulb in your house with that from a candle.
You notice that compared to your bulb, the candle has a more yellowy orangey glow to it. This is because the two light sources have different color temperatures.
The colors of the LED lights affect our mood, so we have to be wise to choose the right ones. For example, a Warm White color temperature is optimal for Bed Rooms, The Living Room, and Wall Lights. Day White for Kitchens, Dining, Corridors, Stairs. Cool White more for Bathrooms, Offices, or Workshops. You can read more about the rooms and light colors below…

LED bulbs generally come in a range of 3 color temperatures.

More about the light colours...
Colour temperature is conventionally stated in the unit of temperature, the Kelvin and has the unit symbol ‘K’
The color temperature of the sun can vary greatly according to the time of day and weather, but the standard value that is used is around 5500K. This appears to us the most natural-looking light, not warm or cool.
Color temperatures over 5000K are called Cool White. This light color is pure white and is often seen in offices where it is said to enhance concentration. Lower color temperatures around 4000K are called Day White or Natural White this is the medium range, good for many areas where natural bright light is required. 2700K – 3000K are called warm white colors and are said to increase relaxation. A candle has a temperature of around 2000K, which is why it appears warm, yellow, and relaxing!
Similar to incandescent and halogen bulbs color. We recommend these four areas and rooms where a relaxed atmosphere or night light is desired. Bedrooms and living rooms are the perfect examples of where to use the warm white color.
The Day White or Natural White LED Colour is like natural sunny daylight color. We find these bulbs are most suitable for where you need a good quality of wonderful light for working or daily routines but still provide a ‘homely atmosphere. Kitchens, studies, and bathrooms are perfect candidates.
A pure white color that we recommend for working environments such as offices, workshops, studies and bathrooms. The Cool White color temperature range enhances concentration. Gives white clear, bright LED Light.
Selecting a color temperature is mainly a matter of personal preferences.
