What is warm white light?

Warm white light, a popular light variant, stands out for its soft and cozy appearance. This light color exhibits a pleasant yellowish tint that is often used in living spaces and environments where a warm ambiance is desired. Especially in spaces like the cabin of a truck, warm white light comes into its own. It is often associated with comfort and coziness. When an LED lamp emits warm white light, the color temperature typically ranges between 2700 and 3000 Kelvin. This light is used to create an inviting atmosphere that positively influences people's moods.

What is neutral white light?

Besides this colour of light, there are of course other colours, such as neutral white light (4000K) and cold white light (6000K). Neutral white light is in between cold white and warm white. The colour of neutral white light is whiter than a warm white colour. Neutral light is often used in places where productivity plays an important role. This is because the light has a stimulating effect on people's concentration. Neutral white light is also often used in LED panels. It

colour temperature and kelvin values

The color temperature, measured in Kelvin (K), indicates the 'color' of the emitted light. A lower Kelvin number results in warmer, more yellow light, while a higher number leads to cooler, whiter light. Here are some reference points:

  • 1900K: Warm light like candlelight.
  • 2200K: Warm light.
  • 2700K: Warm white light like the light from LED lamps.
  • 3000K: Warm white light.
  • 4000K: White with a warm glow.
  • 4800K: Daylight with direct sunlight.
  • 5500K: Standard daylight white, such as clear sky.
  • 6000K: Cool white, like bright blue sky with an afternoon sun.
  • 7000K: Daylight with rain.
  • 10.000K: Daylight with thunderstorms.

De keuze voor een specifieke lichtkleur, bepaald door de Kelvin-waarde, is een sleutelfactor bij het creëren van de gewenste sfeer en functionaliteit in elke ruimte.
