Colour temperature explained

With most lighting products, there is an extensive range of technical information that gets listed. However, having a basic understanding of the basics will help you make the right choice in choosing your lighting product.

In this blog, I will explain ‘colour temperature’ and how to choose the right light for your home or business.

The scale typically runs from a scale of 1,000 to 10,000 kelvin, and within domestic and commercial use, the use of between 2,000 to 6,000 Kelvin is more common place.

Depending on your desired ambiance and mood, the colour temperature is essential in setting the final tone once the light is installed, whether you want a warm ambiance, which is typically rated on the lower end of the Kelvin scale, or a more cool/bright setting on the high end of the scale.
