Choosing a light source color is important to the overall look or style of the project. While most people are becoming more familiar with this, you may want a quick overview so a brief description is below. This is not an absolute as many times people can go against the trend. Here's a few examples of projects we completed that were the opposite of the norm.
Typical Applications for Kelvin Temperatures
2300k Amber - Vintage Lamps, Turtle Friendly Applications (We have turtle friendly LEDs)
2700k Warm white - Residential Homes
3000k Warm white - Residential Homes
3500k Warm white - Modern Design Residential Homes, Office, Retail, Commercial
4000k Neutral white, Commercial, Office, Retail
5000k Cool white - Commercial, Retail, Industrial
6500k daylight - Industrial, Commercial
7000k blue (Color of sky)
The picture below is from the government Lighting Facts program. You'll notice that it does not include below 2700k or above 6500k. That's because 99.9% of lights sold presently fall within this range.
