Hello:

I'm having a difficult time determining what "color" of recessed LED task lighting to put over my kitchen island and counters. Some LED seem so very white, some look a little blue...what's the best option?

Thank you

A color temperature of 2700 -3000 is what incandescent lights are. The higher the number, the cooler the look. 3000 to 4000 would be good for most kitchens. You also want to consider the CRI (color rendering index). 90 & above shows colors more accurately. If you have cool colors in your kitchen but want warm light, the CRI can make a significant difference.
