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…
LED Colour Guide
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 two light sources have different colour temperatures.
The colours of the LED lights are affecting our mood so we have to be wise to chose the right ones. For example Warm White colour temperature optimal for Bed Rooms, Living Rooms 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 colours below…

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 5500K. This appears to us, the most natural looking light, not warm or cool.
Colour temperatures over 5000K are called Cool White. This light colour is pure white and are often seen in offices where it is said to enhance concentration. Lower colour temperatures around 4000K called Day White or Natural White this is the medium range, good for many areas where natural bright light required. 2700K – 3000K are called warm white colours and are said to increase relaxation. A candle has a temperature of around 2000K which is why it appears very warm, yellow and relaxing!
Selecting a colour temperature is mainly a matter of personal preferences.
