‘Kelvins’ measure the colour temperature of a bulb. Typically, home lighting can sit anywhere between 2000 to 6500 kelvins.
As a guide, natural daylight is around 6500 kelvins.
The colour temperature, Kelvins (K) of a light bulb describes its light appearance. For example, a bulb with a low kelvin number, such as 2700K, creates a soft, warm feeling, while a bulb with a high kelvin number, like 5000K, creates a cool bright light.
Lights with different kelvin numbers may be suitable for certain areas of your home. For example, a soft, warm, more ‘yellow’ light tone will be best for creating a cosy feel in a bedroom or living room, whereas a kitchen or office will more likely require a bright, white light. Lighting can have a large impact on the mood and usability of your space, so it’s important to check the kelvin number when buying light bulbs.
