Cool or Warm Light?

Choosing lights is an important aspect to any project. LED lighting enables you to choose the "colour" of your light. We offer two main colour choices of "Cool White" (5,000k - 5,500k) or "Warm White" (3,000k - 3,500k). To learn more about the Colour Temperature scale please visit the Colour Temperature page...

Colour Temperature is a personal preference, some clients use one colour throughout to maintain consistency while others choose different colours for different areas.
