Bulb colour temperatures

3000K, 4300K, 5000K, 5050K, 6000K, 8000K, 10000K, 12000K, 15000K, 30000K

Color temperature is a measurement in Degrees.Many people hold the misconception that color temperature is a rating of the brightness of the bulb or kit.
That belief is completely false. The reality of the matter is that the higher the color temperature, the less useable light output you will obtain. A perfect example would be a black light. This light has a color temperature of approx 14,000k and has almost no useable light or lumens output. Higher K such as 12,000k, 14000k, etc. have been used by individuals that are more concerned about the actual color output of their lights as opposed to the actual useable light output.
Generally we suggest 6000k to our customers who are uncertain of which temperature bulbs they want. We think it is the best balance between brightness and visual appearance.
