Cool white lights typically give off blue tones. They are infamously known to give off rather unattractive lighting as they cast light on imperfections and can make surroundings look cold, dull and lifeless.
They are generally used in displays that require the emphasis of cool tones such as snow, ice or water related displays or for spaces that need to feel ‘clinical’ – such as clinics, dental surgeries and retail shops.
Task lighting has become popular giving the cool white light bulb the chance to make an appearance in decorative rooms. They produce a clear, clean and direct light that allows the room to feel more open.
Quite similarly to the colour of a room, lighting can dramatically alter the ambience, tone and feel of a room. If your home is feeling on the dull side, ask your electrician to change the hue of your lighting to either a warm white for a cozy effect, natural white for an open fresh effect or a cool white for that crisp clean effect.
