Arrangement of lighting fixtures is not only for illumination but also to enhance their beauty.Therefore, here comes the question “How to select a light for my home?”
Understand the specs.
There are a variety of specifications to consider when choosing a light. And you may have seen them on the package or on Amazon product page. Do you really know what the values represent? To understand them will be much helpful for the light choosing.
Color Temperature: is a unit of measure for absolute temperature, conventionally expressed in kelvins, using the symbol “K”. You can simply understand it as the color of the lighting. The lower the value is, the yellower the color of the light is; the higher the value is, the whiter the light is.
Color Rendering Index (CRI):is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source. The higher the value is, the closer the color displayed by the object under the illumination source, and the smaller the color distortion is.
Lumen: is the unit of luminous flux, a measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time. The higher the value is, the brighter the light will be.
