Warm White, Neutral White or Cool White - What's the difference.jpg

Light colour is measured in Kelvins, Color temperatures over 5000K are known as "cool colors" (bluish white), while lower color temperatures (2700–3000 K) are called "warm colors" (yellowish white).

Getting the right colour for your furniture can be a challenge, but as a simple guide traditional kitchens that feature natural wood tend to look better with Warm White, whilst modern kitchens with gloss tend to look better with Cool White.

At the end of the day  light colour has a big impact on a room, and you have to be comfortable with the atmosphere it creates.

Below are 3 example kitchens using the 3 different light colours.
