Before you start, please check the bulb packaging to find a four digit number with "K" at the end. This number shows whether the bulb's light is a warm white or a cold white and it's measured in Kelvin. Here is how to interpret these numbers:
1800K - Gives you an amber vintage glow. These bulbs are usually atmospheric and give you a low level of light, so if you are planing to read or do anything else other then relaxing, you might want to consider one of the lamps below.
2700K - This colour gives out a warm glow of a traditional bulb and comes in a wide variety of types and strengths. If you are opting for an LED variant, check the packaging for an output equivalent in "old money", so to speak. For instance, you'd see an 8W marking and it should state in the same area of the product box that this equates to about 60W, which the output of an old type of non-energy efficient lamp.
3000K - This is a rather rare bulb colour, still warm white in appearance, but less yellow and shows true colours. Use it in a room with white walls, an office or a kitchen.
4000K - This is very similar to 3000K but appears more white, however it is not cold or blue in appearance. This is great for hair salons and jewelry displays.
6500K - Is a cold colour bulb that some may mistake for "blue", however this colour temperature is a top choice for all artists and craft makers as it's a great representation of the colour of natural day light.
