Is soft light and warm light the same?
Also question is, what is the difference between soft light and warm light?
Here's a breakdown of light bulb color temperature: Soft white (2,700 to 3,000 Kelvin) is warm and yellow, the typical color range you get from incandescent bulbs. This light gives a warm and cozy feeling and is often best for living rooms, dens and bedrooms. Warm white (3,000 to 4,000 Kelvin) is more yellowish-white.
One may also ask, is warm light better than cool light? Cool white light contains more blue light and looks brighter to the eye (this is why cool white bulbs have a higher lumen output when compared to the equivalent warm white bulb). It also seems people from sunnier countries tend to prefer white light compared to people from cooler countries who prefer more warm light.
Subsequently, one may also ask, which is brighter warm white or soft white?
Warm white and soft white will produce a yellow hue, close to incandescents, while bulbs labeled as bright white will produce a whiter light, closer to daylight and similar to what you see in retail stores. The lower the number, the warmer (yellower) the light.
Is warm light better for the eyes?
Warm white is more relaxing to the eyes than cool white. It's best for rooms where people naturally prefer soft light. Thus, this is recommended for the dining room, living room, and the bedroom. If you want to look better, warm white will reduce the appearance of your imperfections and will soften your skin tone.
