Lighting Solution.

Why is it so important to get the right lighting installed in your home or work space?

How to choose the right color temperature

At Omni Africa we know a thing or two about lighting and how it changes your environment. Color, lumens, design are all key elements in choosing the right lighting. In the era of LED, there are now so many options to choose from whilst keeping your space environmentally friendly.

Light colour is measured in Kelvin (K) which is the base unit of temperature. When we talk about lighting, it is often expressed as warm light or cool light. Each color has a different Kelvin value. Household lighting usually starts at 2700K (warm incandescent), then 3000K (warm white halogen) and 3500k (household fluorescent). 

Colour temperatures higher than 3500k are more frequently used in industrial and commercial locations where the light is bright and gives a bluish daylight cast. This type of lighting can be a little harsh for households. When selecting new lighting, taking in to account the color you need will ensure you make the right choice for your space.

 

Less than 2000K: gives off a dim glow of light, similar to what you might find from candlelight; best for low light areas where ambient illumination is welcomed

2000K-3000K: gives off a soft white glow, often yellow in appearance; best for living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and outdoor spaces

3100K-4500K: gives off a bright amount of white light; best for kitchens, offices, work spaces and vanities where task lighting is needed

4600K-6500K: gives off a bright amount of blue-white light, similar to that of daylight; best for display areas and work environments where very bright illumination is needed

6500K:and up: gives off a bright bluish hue of light, often found in commercial locations; best for bright task lighting

6500K:and up: gives off a bright bluish hue of light, often found in commercial locations; best for bright task lighting
