Color Temperature Scale
It's important to pick the right color temperature for your setting, based on the Color Temperature Scale. Color temperature describes the "whiteness" of a light source, and is measured in Kelvin (K). A higher Kelvin temperature is a bluer, cooler light while a lower Kelvin temperature is warmer, with a yellow/red appearance. Warm color tones are perfect for comfortable settings, while cooler tones are ideal for professional environments.
