The history of LED lighting
LED lighting has revolutionized the lighting industry since its invention in the 1960s. While originally used only as indicator lights, LEDs soon found a use in consumer electronics and then began to be mass produced in taillights during the early 2000s. By 2015 synthetic white-light LEDs took over in most consumer light fixtures, providing a much more energy efficient replacement for previous technology that had been used for decades.
Today we can see LED lighting everywhere from our homes to the cars that we drive. As researchers continue to develop more efficient and powerful versions of LEDs, consumers will discover even more uses for this revolutionary technology.
Understanding LED light color (Kelvin)
When it comes to choosing the right Kelvin rating for your LED lights, careful consideration is key. Without a doubt, the ultimate goal should be to find a temperature that not only meets the needs of the room but also creates an atmosphere conducive to enjoying its purpose.
If you are looking for something that gives off a warm glow, 2700-3000K will provide a softer feel while 3500-4000K will give off a rather yellowy or off-white tone depending on which side of the rating scale you lean toward. On the other hand, if your goal is to create an illuminated bright space then 5000K and above will do the trick; however, these can lack with color rendering so being conscious of that might be wise.
At the end of the day, striking balance and understanding how each range will impact moods and tasks at hand is essential when selecting your preferred color tempeture.
