Colour Temperature Chart

Colour temperature is a standard method of describing colours for use in a range of situations and with different equipment. Colour temperatures are normally expressed in units called Kelvins (K). Note that the term “degrees Kelvin” is often used but is not technically correct. The colour temperature is for descriptive purposes only and does not relate to the actual temperature of the lamp.

The following chart shows the colour temperatures and codes used for some of the most popular lamp types:

    

Colour Temp, K Colour Code Description
2700 827 Warm White
3500 835 White
4000 840 Cool White
