One aspect that makes LED lighting unique is the various color options available. Many are familiar with the different light temperatures: warm white, cool white and natural daylight. Though, RGB LEDs are also growing popular for their beautiful colors, along with the versatile uses and benefits. Want to know what they are? Well, here we go…

RGB scale What is RGB Lighting?

RGB is an acronym for the colors red, green and blue. When those three colors of lights are combined and used together in a single unit, it's able to create and display over 16 million color options. How is it that many? Each of the base colors has numerous different shades - over 250 - so, in simple terms, when you mix and match all of those shades, you get over 16 million colors.


Where to Use Them

As mentioned, RGB lighting is great for performance lighting. It’s bright, beautiful and enticing. Though, many areas of the home and office are also highly suitable for the incorporation of color LEDs. In the form of under cabinet lighting, RGB lights can be placed in the kitchen and laundry room simply for the presence of color. They’re also great in a kid’s playroom or bedroom for accent lighting. Same goes for an office – why not spruce things up a bit?

Working as mood lighting, RGB lights are great for relaxation in a bedroom. For example, the emission of green light is said to bring the sense of serenity and low stress of calmness while blue light offers the feeling of calmness. In fact, Very Well Mind says, "people are more productive in blue rooms." Just think of what having a whole spectrum of lighting would do for you.

Some unique places are in drawers or refrigerators, and outside on decks, in pools and as exterior holiday displays. For these cold or wet locations, we recommend specialty products made for outdoors.

Less Heat

You would think since RGB lighting is so vibrant and strong that they would emit a lot of heat. Well, you’d be surprised to know that it’s actually the opposite. LEDs use less energy, so naturally emit less heat (and are cheaper!) There’s always a benefit of knowing you’re saving money and resources.
