Light Temperature makes a huge difference to your rooms.

There is more to picking a bulb than looking at the Power (Wattage). The temperature (in Kelvin) changes the colour effect. Warm White (around 3000K) is a ‘normal’ look for a bulb, it looks yellow-ish to your eyes.  Swapping for a higher temperature makes the light less yellow and more blue.

I Recently changed my bed-side lamps to 6000K LED bulbs. They are a daylight white bulb, make my room look more white then yellow when they are on. Also they are low power, so cost less to run which is good for my purse and the environment.

The only thing is, they create a strobing effect. My Bedroom looks rather like a disco…. interesting development.
