Let's talk about color temperature.

What is color temperature?

Color temperature is a way to describe the light appearance provided by a light bulb. It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K). 

►At the lower end of the scale, from 2000K to 3000K, the light produced is called “warm white” and ranges from orange to yellow-white in appearance.
►Color temperatures between 3100K and 4500K are referred to as “cool white” or “bright white.” The light within this range will emit a more neutral white light and may even have a slightly blue tint.
►Above 4500K brings us into the “daylight” color temperature of light. Light with color temperatures of 4500K and above will give off a blue-white light that mimics daylight.

How do we choose the suitable color temperature in daily life?

Generally, warm white (2700 / 2800 degrees Kelvin) is for residential projects. In office projects and work spaces cooler white can be preferable (cooler color temperatures can actually help increase productivity).

When choosing the color temperature you really need to consider the finishes and color palette of each space. In your home, it may be worth considering using cooler LEDs in the kitchen or bathrooms, particularly if plenty of natural light is available. Generally, bathrooms and kitchens have white finishes, cooler white can also create a more clinical or sterile feel, which can be desirable in a bathroom or kitchen.

Why does color temperature matter for flashlights?  

First of all, some people may say that a certain color temperature is better or worse for viewing objects up close or at a distance.  While personal preferences may vary, warm-colored LEDs are typically better for close-up work and for color rendition and cool-colored LEDs are typically better for illuminating objects at a distance.  Cool LEDs also work well with night vision because the eye responds faster to cool-colored lights when the eyes have adjusted to complete darkness.
