LED lighting technology has provided customers with a choice of colour temperatures. This choice that ranges from extra warm white to cool white provides dramatically different illumination. For commercial or residential projects colour temperatures have a major impact on any room.

Correlated Colour Temperature, or CCT, is the technical term for the colour appearance of white LEDs and is measured in Kelvins (K). Contrary to how it sounds, LED colour temperature refers to the colour of the light and not the actual temperature of the LED light. Many people are unaware how important selecting the right colour temperature of white LED light is for the success of a project. Choosing the right colour temperature will depend on the mood you want to create. Bright Light's extensive range of products and colour options allows clients to make an informed choice.
When looking at a colour scale which goes from orange – yellow – white - blue it is easy to see how the temperature works. Candlelight is the lower end around 1500K, giving a very warm orange light. 2700-3000K is warm white, 4000K is natural white, which has less yellow and slightly more blue, going up to cool white (also called daylight) 5500-6500K which is CCT of a bright day outside.
Warmer tones, typically 2700K – 3000K create a more relaxing environment, it is often used in homes or hospitality spaces. Natural white keeps you alert while making tasks easier and is used in commercial applications such as offices and retail, where lighting is used throughout the day. Cooler white 5000K+ temperatures are contrasting and bright, perfect for drawing attention to signs and is often preferred in the marine industry or for signage projects.
To create the best of both worlds, lighting of different colour temperatures can be combined. To keep a room feeling warm and inviting but also well-lit for doing detailed tasks, it can be teamed up with warm white main lighting and touches of natural white feature lighting (such as LED strip in cove lighting in a lounge or above/below kitchen cupboards).
