Colour temperature is indicated in a unit called Kelvin (K). A low colour temperature creates a warm and inviting lighting effect, while a high colour temperature creates a cool, more energising effect. Generally, intimate spaces like dining areas and living rooms lend themselves to warmer colour temperatures (2700K-3000K), while office spaces, kitchens, and bathrooms are a bit cooler (3000K-4000K) to give the feeling of cleanliness and activity.
Our pendants are available in 2700K Warm White, 3000K Bright White, or 4000K Cool White, and we can also offer bespoke colour temperatures on request. For a happy medium, we recommend 3000K, which tends to work well in most environments and is the most popular choice for our pendants. We recommend consulting your architect, builder, interior designer or lighting designer if you are unsure of the right choice for your home. If you have other light fixtures in a space, be sure to match all of your colour temperatures to create a cohesive mood.
