Choosing The Color Temperature

What is Color Temperature?
Color temperature is the rating a particular color renders on the Kelvin scale. Color temperatures alter how an object or room is perceived when illuminated. 

Watch our accompanying video for an in-depth look at the different lighting temperatures and what these temperature values translate to when lighting your home. The table and images below will also be able to shed some light (no pun intended) on some of Tresco’s standard lighting practices with regard to color temperature.


Color Temperature on Wood Grain
For cabinet lighting and other lighting applications that illuminate primarily wooden surfaces, color temperature also plays a role that many consumers fail to take into consideration when choosing lighting kits. Tresco® took wood grain variation into consideration when developing our lighting solutions.
