As you look at different options, keep the following checklist in mind:

Pay attention to Kelvin temperature (K). A temperature of 2700K provides a warm light while 3000K provides a brighter, whiter (resembling halogen) light source. Another important note: different LED bulbs may have the same Kelvin temperature listed on the box, but Kelvin temperature can vary from one manufacturer to another.

Look at the Color Rendering Index (CRI). CRI is the measurement of how well a light source presents colors of materials, surfaces, and objects authentically. A CRI of 90+ will beautifully highlight your paint colors, food, and even skin tone.

Confirm that the fixture is UL or ETL listed. UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. and ETL is a mark for Intertek Testing Services. Essentially, these certifications assure you that the fixture and bulb have gone through rigorous testing. Consider it a seal of approval. Note: most electricians will not install non-listed fixtures.

We hope you will find the great light with this tips.
