Choosing the right LED colour

It's important to understand the differences between 'warm white' and 'cool white' LED lighting and how each interacts with different kitchen surfaces and colourways.

Here's some guidance to help you create the perfect lighting scheme for your kitchen. Match your worktop/door finish to the closest match in the examples shown below (The worktops/doors are sat below the LED colour which we would recommend).

We’re aiming to make it as easy as possible for you to choose the right LED colour for your kitchen, ensuring it’s as stunning as it is functional.

Warm White

Produces a cosy, calming effect which complements a traditional style kitchen featuring wood surfaces and muted worktops perfectly.

Cool White

Gives a more modern effect, bouncing off gloss or contemporary surfaces to create a stunning effect.
