🏡Today's Random Real Estate 2️⃣cents is about light bulbs. What a bright 💡 idea. 😆Hold while I get my pun on!! You would be amazed at the amount of info there is out there about light bulbs. For me understanding the variations in colors that can effect a rooms overall look was mega important. First, I had to understand how this is was rated and the name.
A unit of measurement used to describe the hue of a light bulb is called Kelvin. It’s not necessarily related to the heat output of the light but rather the color of the light that is produced. The higher the Kelvin value, the closer the light's color output will be to actual sunlight.
💛For Warm paint tones:
To bring out the warmth of your paint color, choose a bulb with a color temp rated at or below 3000K or labeled low K. The lower the number on the Kelvin scale, the yellower the color of the light will be.
💙For cool paint tones:
To enhance the cooler paint colors, you’ll want to choose bulbs with a color temp rated 4000K-6000K or high K label.
💰Bonus: Switch to LED and save around $8-$10 a year in energy cost per bulb. (Instead of the old school, soon to be phased out incandescent bulb) Even though the initial bulb cost is more the life of the bulb is exponentially longer.
