Ledlam LED Bulbs generally come in the choice of three colour temperatures but what does ‘colour temperature’ mean? Check our LED Colour Guide and find out…
Don’t worry too much, as it is quite simple to understand. In basic terms the ‘colour temperature’ is the colour of the light source. You see not all light sources are the same. The easiest way to demonstrate this is to compare lighting from a bulb in your house with that from a candle. You will notice that compared to your bulb the candle has a more yellowy/orangey glow to it. This is because the 2 light sources have different colour 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 colour temperature of the sun can vary greatly according to the time of day and weather but the standard value that is used is around 5,500K. This appears to us, the most natural looking light, not warm or cool.
Colour temperatures over 5,000K are called cool white colours (pure white) and are often seen in offices where it is said to enhance concentration. While lower colour temperatures around, 2,700–3,000 K are called warm colours and are said to increase relaxation. A candle has a temperature of around 2,000K, which is why it appears very warm, yellow and relaxing!
