Q. What is a lumen?
A. A lumen is a measure of how much visible light is emitted by a source.
Q. What is Kelvin(K) Temperature as related to the color of a light bulb?
A. Color temperature is a way to describe the light appearance provided by a light bulb. It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K) on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000. Typically, Kelvin temperatures for commercial and residential lighting applications fall somewhere on a scale from 2000K to 6500K.
Q. How many lumens do I need for a space?
A. Rule of thumb: 20 to 30 lumens square foot. For the average space of 250 square feet, you'll need roughly 5000 lumens as your primary light source (20 lumens x 250 square feet). In your dining room, you'll want about 30 lumens per square foot on your dining table (to see, not examine, food), so if your table is 6 x 3 feet, that's 540 lumens. PLEASE note the colors and or textures of walls and ceiling may effect this.
