Lighting to lift your mood


The Soho Lighting Company launch the most effective bulbs in the market. 

When designing interiors, natural light is one of the most important tools in creating functional, relaxing, and beautiful spaces. When it comes to light there is more to consider than just aesthetic appeal.

Colour Render Index (CRI) is a measure of how closely artificial light represents natural daylight and, as the summer draws to a close and we spend more time indoors, the quality of our artificial light becomes hugely significant.

How does artificial light replicate natural daylight? 

 It is through a high CRI (Colour Rendering Index). CRI is a measure of how accurately artificial light represents the colour of objects compared to natural light. For example, 100 CRI represents natural daylight with 80 CRI being the lowest standard set for the home environment.  

Alarmingly, the market is dominated by low 82 CRI LED downlights and as we frequently use this form of lighting for optimum visibility areas (such as task lighting in the kitchen, studies and the bathroom), it may mean that we are living with inferior illumination.  

What are the main benefits of high CRI?  

The benefits of high CRI are numerous and include a dramatic increase in colour definition - important for all aspects of living and working. Clarity and contrast is sharpened, to aid detailed tasks such as reading and writing, which in turn leads to a reduction in eye strain and tension. Work productivity is improved along with a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.  

Where can you source high CRI LED bulbs?  The Soho Lighting Company supply a beautiful range of high CRI downlights and bulbs which achieve a market-leading rating of 95-97 CRI, available in multiple finishes. 

In summary: 5 BENEFITS OF HIGH CRI  

  • Improved colour definition
  • Better contrast and clarity 
  • Reduced eye strain and tension 
  • Increased work productivity 
  • Improved mental health
