    What color temperature lights do you have in your house?

    Just bought a new apartment. About to replace all the old school 75W fluros that are 2700K temp

    Personally, I've always had 6500K lights. But everyone I talk to at the lighting stores are looking at me like I'm a weirdo for wanting such a high temp light for my entire house.

    I'm also a big fan of really bright ****-off lights, so I'm looking at lights between 1400 - 1800 lumens

    What temperature lighting do you guys have at your place?

    Warm lights, I hate white/blue light inside. I want to feel at home, not in a hospital/office.

    Yellow but I didn't really decide on a colour and just bought lights and they were yellow.

    I've had white in the past and eh, they supplied light.

    All LEDs so I did have a choice. I replaced all of the fittings with those panel dealios.

    I've got a cool rainbow light for my bedroom just turn on the app and watch it turn into different colours (But these days mostly just the normal neutral colour for general mood) and for the rest of the lights yellow smallish lights instead of the big 70 style ones.

    Depends which room

    I like cold white in the kitchen, or anywhere I need more light. Softer in other rooms, brighter for reading lights.

    It's all just random, I've never been that motivated to get specific. Our lounge and living areas are usually candles.

    At some point I need to get a tiger stripe bed throw and dragon statue holding a crystal.

    The kitchen, dining and lounge are one big open area so its a bit hard to mix and match the lights

    Pffft, go the disco route, you coward. One green, one red, one blue, wash and repeat at random.

    I run black lights. I use a custom made solution for guide marking.

    They're a shitty low brightness of 800 lumens. Very very lame, no thank you.

    The designs on the walls didn't come with the wallpaper and despite its look the carpet is plain.

    I'm running Philips Hue Aphelion down lights at 600 lumen, but there's so many of them it doesn't matter. They can be any colour temp, and like Zarkov, it varies depending on what I'm doing as to what I set it to. Incidentally, bright white seems brighter than the warm yellow one, even when they're both at full brightness.

    Mutton’s room looks like a painter’s radio under black light.

    Standard for houses is 3K, standard for offices is 4k.
    Some people like 4k in bathrooms and kitchens.

    Warm white, although not sure the exact temperature.

    Protip: the Number8 "warm white" LEDS from Mitre10 are more "piss yellow", so avoid those.

    Do you mind giving me an example? Like, how large is the room (meters by meters) and how many of those fittings do you have? Assuming standard 2.4m height?
    Thanks!
