In general soft white ( lower color temperature 2700K or so ) are preferred in a more intimate environment such as a bedroom or restaurant or a hotel lobby, while a daylight ( 3000K or above) is preferred for an office or garage or kitchen.
Keeping this in consideration, is white or yellow light better for your eyes?
So ideally, one would use the white light in the early hours and around noon (when you need less artificial light if you have enough windows) and yellow light in the evening so as to not tamper with your sleep. Warm light is best for the eyes. Hard question to answer, as lighting has changed so much.
Similarly, what color light is best for kitchen?
Bright white/cool white (4100 Kelvin): Best in kitchens, bathrooms or garages; giving rooms a whiter, more energetic feel. Daylight (5000-6000 Kelvin): Best in bathrooms, kitchens and basements; good for reading, intricate projects, or applying makeup—provides the greatest contrast among colors.
What light bulb gives the whitest light?
CFLs and LEDs are made to match the color of incandescent bulbs at 2700-3000K. If you prefer a whiter light, look for bulbs marked 3500-4100K. For bluer white light, look for bulbs marked 5000-6500K.
