LED Lightbulbs

Postby Tyler » Sun Aug 05, 2018 9:40 pm

Slowly changing out all the bulbs in my house with LED (not smart). I always get hung up on cool vs warm lights. Traditional light bulbs give off a yellow glow. The LED ones I have are white. What do people use inside and outside?

From a website;

When recommending colour temperature to our customers we generally recommend Warm White for homes and Cool white for office spaces. The reason behind this is that warm white is a much more relaxing, calm light, whereas cool white is a very bright light that can improve concentration.  However, there are certain rooms in a home that require tasks to be performed, such as the kitchen, laundry and study which could benefit from having cool white light. Also, if your home is modern and has minimalistic style, then cool white would look great as it is a very clean bright light

Same. My wife hates the cool light bulbs I bought so they get demoted to the garage and the basement.

I'll pick up some warm ones today while at McNards. I like the look of the cool lights, but it does make our bathroom feel like a hospital. It also blinded me this morning.

Jocelyn admitted today she liked the cool light in the morning! She looked better in the light and it would work well for makeup
