What color temperature should I buy?

Choosing the light temperature in your home all comes down to a matter of preference. Keep in mind that a lower number means a warmer light and a higher number means a whiter-blueish light. You may want different types of light throughout your home. Here are some examples of where different light temperatures are more commonly used:

2700K (Warm White): Most commonly used in powder rooms, lounges, dining rooms, anywhere where ambiance is desired.


3000K (Soft Light): This is widely considered our most versatile temperature. It's used in bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens and even outside on porches. 


4000K (Daylight White): Popular for all uses, as this is the closest color to natural sunlight. Great in overhead kitchen lighting, garages, and some commercial spaces.


5000K (Crystal White): Preferential light that can be used in a home, but is mostly used in detail-oriented environments such as woodshops and maintenance garages, commercial spaces, warehouses, etc. 


6000K (Super Bright White): This is the coldest kelvin temperature we offer! This is commonly used in offices, hospitals, sports areas, warehouses, etc.
