How To Identify The Best Color Temperature For Various Applications In Houston
1. Display Elements
Do you have a stone fountain, stonework, or beautiful statues in your garden and looking for the perfect lighting for the same? A 2000k to 3000k color spectrum will produce a much better shade for the garden. The stone surface will absorb the warmer temperature leaving your garden more vibrant at night. The warm color temperature combines well with the settled-cooler stone producing even better results. We, however, don’t recommend choosing cooler light temperatures (4600k – 6500k), for these will create an unsettling and ghostly look to the stone surfaces. The cooler color temperatures may, however, prove effective if looking to produce a haunted vibe, especially for Halloween.
3. Entertainment & Outdoor Living Areas
Entertainment and outdoor living spaces ought to have a calm and relaxing vibe to enable your guests to sit back and relax. Warmer LED lights (2000K – 3000k) are this recommended for this application. The warmer tones produce just enough light for the space, and don’t hurt your eyes at all. Think of how the firepit illuminates the area around. The fire’s warm glow is relaxing to look at, hence the perfect temperature for outdoor and entertainment purposes.
4. Garden Lighting
The garden is one of the few places at home you want the lighting to be spot-on. Sticking to the cooler but vibrant light color (3000K – 4000K) will help produce and even amplify the plant’s natural colors and features. These LEDs help produce and amplify the plants’ vibrancy in the garden, hence the perfect choice if looking to show your garden off.
