In fact, you can choose warm (soft) white, cool (bright) white, or daylight for your light bulbs or lighting strips. These terms refer to the correlated color temperature (CCT) your light source will emit, and your customers might prefer one end of the CCT spectrum over the other depending on how they’ll use the lighting.
Read on to learn about the types of white light and which ones will work best for your customers in certain places or applications.

A note about LEDs: While LEDs are often bright white or daylight on the CCT spectrum, the chips can be adjusted to produce any color temperature. You’ll then have a more durable, energy-efficient light source without having to settle for brighter lighting than you want.
