I think that since it is home, warmth is important, so I suggest choosing a yellow light. Yellow light is warm color light, white light is cool color light, warm color is perceptible, and cool color is reasonable. White light is usually chosen in places such as the living room.

How about you?

2700K is about what an incandescent bulbs color.

In some areas I use 3000K warmer color and 5000K whiter color in others. One is a 2700K but it was an LPrize and I am trying to see how long it goes for.

The overhead cellar 4 foot fixtures are 4100K.

All are LED except a few places where an LED would not work. Like the small light in a Microwave, Refrigerator and Oven.
