Incandescents are known for giving off a pleasant, warm (yellowish) light. LEDs, however, come in a variety of different colors. Getting to know your different LED lighting options for your home or office is important for setting the right mood.
LEDs come in a wide range of color options. From purple to red, and a whole range of whites and yellows, it’s important to find the right colored bulb for your light fixture depending on your space’s needs.
The most popular LED colors are “soft white” and “warm white”. These both produce a more yellowish hue than other popular LED options (“bright white”), and are the most similar to the classic incandescent bulb’s effect.
“Bright White” gives off more of a whiter hue, which can be compared to natural daylight and is typically used in larger retail stores and modern offices.
While shopping for the right LED color for you, pay attention to the Kelvins on the box. Kelvins are the unit of measurement for color in light bulbs. Typically, the lower the number, the more yellow the color will be.
