3000K vs. 4000K BR30 Bulbs for Home and Residential Lighting
I need to purchase BR30 bulbs for my new construction home build and I am having great difficulty deciding between 3000k and 4000k on the color spectrum. I actually fear that 3k will be too yellow and 4k may be too white.
We have attached an article below which contains tips for making an informed color temperature selection for each type of installation area.
In short, we generally recommend 2700K for living areas and 3000K for kitchens and dining areas. The 4000K on the other hand, is usually recommended for retail areas and office spaces.
