Color temperature refers to the appearance of light emitted by a light source. This is measured in kelvins (K) on a scale of 1,000 to 12,000. The higher the Kelvin number, the more light will appear.
What is the difference between cool white and warm white?
Temperatures between 2000 and 3000 K are known as "warm colors" as they emit a pleasant yellow or orange glow, a color temperature "White cold" (3300 - 5300K) will have a cool, cool hue. Temperatures above 5300 K are defined as “daylight” because this color (white-blue) perfectly reproduces daylight.
Why is color temperature important?
When designing lighting or simply when choosing a new bulb, it is important to take into account the color temperature. The choice of light will influence the overall mood. Warm temperatures are recommended to promote an intimate, relaxing atmosphere in homes, restaurants, bars or hotels. Cold temperatures have an energizing effect and are therefore suitable for increasing concentration in offices, schools and warehouses.
Can you dim the color temperature?
Today, the latest advancements in lighting technology have led to the launch of innovative products that not only adjust the brightness of a light, but also modify the LED bulb color . By switching from a cold light to a warmer light, you can influence the surrounding atmosphere as well as the general atmosphere at your fingertips. Therefore, you will no longer have to choose a single light temperature, but you'll enjoy the freedom to choose the one that best suits your light preference, activity or current mood.
