Color Temperature


What Color Temperature is Right for Me?

The color temperature of a bulb lets us know the look and feel of the light. It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K) on a scale between 1,000 and 10,000. Typically, for commercial and residential lighting applications, it falls between 2000K and 6500K. Understanding Kelvin temperature (K) makes it easier for you to choose lighting that will give you the effect and ambience you want.
