Room color in combination with light color
July 11, 2018
Havent had a Sylvania LED fail yet, so quality seems there. I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in for future buyers of any bulb.
On color temperature, even though there's many good comments on it, I wanted to let others know 4100k LEDs are available. I mention this because that really does seem to be a good balance of yellow and white. Ive used 3500k in bedrooms (with good results), but you cant see as well as with 5000k lights. The problem with 5000k lights is they are a pale white and almost even seem to make the room look like its in black and white. And ofcourse 6000k is a cold blue. However, 4100k really is a light you can see well with, without looking weird. Also, the color of the ceiling has a big effect with different color temperature lights. In my house I have two green painted rooms side by side, except one has a white ceiling and one has a green ceiling to match the walls. And with the room that has a white ceiling, I can get away with a 5000k bulb. It produces a brilliant white light that lights the whole room. But the room that has a green ceiling, the light produced looks pale in comparison, somehow never bright enough, even when I put 2 bulbs in instead of just 1. So dont forget to take into account if your ceiling is painted white or not. Because with a dark color paint, it seems to absorb light. And when a high color temperature light is used with limited overall lumens, the end result is a pale look. In such rooms you may be better off with a lower K light, maybe 4100k or less.
