Colour of light
The colour temperature is measured in degrees Kelvin (K). The Kelvin value indicates the colour temperature description of the warmth or coolness of a light source. Although there are special lighting colours (blue, yellow, red ..) most lamps are white. However, the colour white can vary from very warm white to cool daylight. The lower the Kelvin value, the warmer the colour. LED lighting is available in all possible light colours. In addition, the colour temperature ranges from 1700K (very warm white) to 6500K (daylight).
What colour temperature should I choose?
1700K - 2700K - 3300K: (very) warm white
Very warm white light promotes relaxation and is suitable for ambient lighting for homes, restaurants and hotels, as it creates a cosy atmosphere.
3300K - 5300K: cool (neutral) white
Cool white light is often used in retail stores and showrooms, but also as general lighting in offices. Cool white light looks natural but it guarantees a good light output.
5300K - 6500K: daylight
Cooler daylight lamps are used to improve concentration, for example in offices, warehouses and industrial work environments.
