A Guide to Understanding Colour Temperature

What exactly is colour temperature and what should you use where?

Colour temperature is the hue of your light. It’s measured in Kelvin (K) and the higher the Kelvin value
of the light source, the closer the light’s color will be to sunlight. Phew, now we’ve got that technical
definition out of the way, what does that actually mean when it comes to choosing lighting?

We’ve been in the lighting industry for over 30 years and know that a colour temperature that is too
warm can produce an unrealistic orange cast to a room, while too cool can create an overall sterile
and unwelcoming feeling.

 

In the end it’s all down to your personal choice and the vibe you want to create in your home.
