Different color temperatures may have different influences upon human feelings, so the application is also diverse according to various working environments of the LED strip lighting. Color temperature is the most general index to represent the quality of the lights emitted by LED strips. If the color temperature is below 2800k, the lights are mainly red and yellow, which could provide people with warm, pleasant, and lively atmosphere, but for unhappy people it may cause irritable feelings; if the color temperature is between 2800K and 5000K, there are proportionally red, green, and blue lights. The lights of the LED strip lighting are close to sunshine and provide people with natural, comfortable, and stable feelings; if the color temperature is between 5000 and 7000K, there are mainly blue lights, which is unpleasant to look at and provide people with calm, deserted, and serious feelings; if the color temperature is more than 7000K, the lights empurple and have lots of flares, which provide people with sad and grave feelings.
Generally speaking, most shopping centers hope to provide a warm environment for customers (i.e. a relatively comfortable environment), so they usually use the LED strip lighting the color temperature of which is around 3000-5000K. The lighting for sitting rooms should be diverse: there is not only basic lighting but also accent lighting and romantic lighting. Thus the illuminating effects should create an ideal atmosphere; the lighting for dining rooms should concentrate people's attention on the dining table. Meantime, the lighting should also be able to highlight the color of foods and arouse people's appetite; the lighting for bedrooms should better adopt neutral color temperature, which could create a relaxing atmosphere.
Usually the LED strip lighting of low color temperature could provide people with warm and sincere feelings. For wedding, we adopt low temperature to create a warm and romantic atmosphere. According to the professional study, the lights people see contain seven colors, and the color temperature is specially used to measure the color composition. Most living rooms adopt white energy-saving lamps in reality. Only if we replace them by the LED strip lighting of low color temperature, which contains many red lights, we could achieve hazy, easy, and warm atmosphere indoors.
In addition, we also should consider that the color temperature of the LED strip lighting should cooperate interactively with the key tone of the working environment. Places with warm tone should better adopt light sources of low color temperature (about 3000K), which could strengthen the warm feelings; places with cold tones should better adopt light sources of high color temperature (more than 5000K), which could create romantic feelings together with local spotlights of low color temperature.
