Warm White or Cool White? – Choosing the Right Color Temperature

Want to replace your old-fashioned, energy-hogging incandescent lights with LED lights? If you have not yet acquainted yourself with LEDs, we’ll discuss the differences between Warm White and Cool White LEDs, as well as where you should use them.

Warm White

Warm White is perfect for giving a cozy atmosphere to areas you want to relax in with friends and family. That’s why it’s a great choice for living rooms, bedrooms, and dining rooms.

Cool White

While there is a whole spectrum to choose from, white light is commonly separated into Warm White and Cool White. Cool White LEDs tend to give off a clean, sharp light. This makes them ideal for kitchens, garages, workshops, product displays, hair salons, make-up rooms, art studios, or any other place that needs a lighting that will represent the real color of an object. In other words, places where light facilitates precision and accuracy instead of setting the mood.

Which is Best for Me?

There are many reasons to choose either White or Warm White lights. Think about the tone you’d like to set for the room. How utilitarian is it? If the room serves functional and leisure purposes, think about incorporating both types of lighting in it for different occasions.

At the end of the day, the choice is yours. The good thing is that you have a ton of options to choose from, so you can craft the look and atmosphere you want for every room of your home or office.
