Suggested Color Temperature for Residential Lighting
Is there a big difference between ordering the bulbs from you all and buying bulbs from Home Depot or Lowes?
Also, Can you tell me what kelvin temp I would need for (recessed lighting in the kitchen, living room ceiling fan, entryway chandelier, and bedrooms)?
While there are many great LED products available on the market, our products have been designed to offer a higher CRI and better color consistency than much of what you will find available at Lowes or Home Depot.
The CRI listed within our product pages represents how similar the light is in quality to that of natural sunlight. While some LED products offer a CRI of 80, products such as our CENTRIC DAYLIGHT™ Full Spectrum Flicker-Free A19 10W LED Bulb offers flicker-free functionality and a CRI of 95+.
For living rooms and bedrooms, we generally recommend the 2700K option, whereas, for kitchens and dining areas, we would alternatively recommend the 3000K option. For recessed lighting, you might be interested in our 3000K Ultra High 95 CRI E26 BR30 LED Bulb for Home & Residential products.
For more information regarding the right options for each space, I have provided a helpful blog post from our website below which might prove to be useful for your planning purposes.
