We were used to the cozier look of incandescent bulbs when most of the lighting in our homes came from them. Modern lighting options have made it possible to enjoy both types of bulbs. CFLs emit more light than incandescent bulbs. It is whiter and sometimes even almost as bright as the warmth they emit. This is in contrast to the light emitted from incandescent lamps. Contrary to this, incandescent bulbs produce a much dimmer light. These colours give off a cooler vibe because they are either whiter than others.

It is also known as the “colour temperature” of white light. This refers to the degree to which white lights have a warm or cool tone. This is not related to the heat generated by a light bulb, but rather the appearance of the light. These colour temperatures are not only described using terms such as “warm white”, “cool white” and “daylight”, but also rated using the kelvin scale which is a temperature scale. This allows us to accurately compare the colours.

It is important to remember that not all kelvin values correspond to all descriptions of color temperatures. These values are available in a variety of colour temperature descriptions. You will see that responses to the same question can vary between websites. However, you will find that the responses to each website are different. The information below is a great guideline and will help you understand what each description entails.

A bulb is generally considered “warm white” if its temperature is below 3000K. (3000 kelvin). This is the colour of light generated by a light source that has a 2700K colour temperature, such as an incandescent or halogen bulb (2850K). You will notice that the brightness of an incandescent bulb or halogen bulb decreases and that the light it emits becomes warmer. It is possible for the temperature to drop below 2200 kelvin. The redder or more orange-colored light produced by a bulb is, the lower its kelvin number.

Both compact fluorescent lamps and light-emitting devices (LEDs) both have the ability to create a “warm” look.

Quiet and colourless

Both “white” and “soft” are terms used to describe light bulbs with a colour temperature between 3000K and 3500K.

Glauco Blanco

Cool white is the colour temperature of light produced by bulbs that have a color temperature between 4100K and 5000K. The light produced by these bulbs is slightly bluish in colour.


These bulbs produce light at a colour temperature of 6500 Kelvin (K) and have a bluish tint. Also known as “daylight bulbs”, daylight bulbs can also be called “daylight lamps”.

 It is up to you to choose which type of lightbulb to buy from the many choices. You might prefer a particular colour temperature in the context of a house and use it throughout the house. If this is the case you should choose the preferred colour temperature. To create a unique atmosphere in each room, you can choose different colour temperatures. You could, for example, put white lights in your kitchen and warm bulbs in the bedroom and dining room. Cool wall lighting would be used in the utility rooms such as the workshop and laundry room. You would have a wide range of lighting options. This is all dependent on the individual being asked.
