Below post is about Soft White vs Daylight white, let’s quickly look at how some people call the light color for different color temperature: Soft White (2700K – 3000K), Bright White/Cool White (3500K – 4100K), and Daylight (5000K – 6500K). However, this classification is not very accurate.
Soft white: In general, the color temperature under 4000 kelvin can be called Soft White/Warm white, 2700-3500K is the most common kelvin, which can be used when people need comfort, ease and warm surroundings. It is widely used for living rooms, bedrooms, lobby and hallways.
Daylight: Daylight color temperature is in the range of 5000K to 5700K, when it is a sunny day, the daylight at noon is 5600K, but sunlight color temperature can be very different based on time of day and weather conditions. To give the perception of daylight (bluish white light), use light sources with a color temperature of 5000K or higher.
