Color Temperature

 

Shades of white light are measured in degrees Kelvin, where lower degrees indicate yellower light and higher degrees indicate whiter or bluish white light. Soft White (2700° -3000º Kelvin) is the warmest option that most closely approximates a standard incandescent bulb. It is most often used in areas like living rooms. Bright White (3500° - 4100° Kelvin) is a whiter light than soft white and is most often selected for kitchens, bathrooms or workspaces. Cool White (4100º - 5000º Kelvin) is a whiter brighter light and often selected for bathroom and tasking lighting applications. Daylight (6000° - 6500° Kelvin) is recommended for reading areas or for use in craft rooms and is a more bluish white that most closely approximates an outdoor overcast sky.
