High Cri Downlights:

CRI is a measure of an artificial lights ability to faithfully represent the colour of objects compared to natural light. LED lights have typically delivered a low CRI of c.78-82. High CRI not only lets you see the true colour of objects and décor as they are meant to be, but can also give better contrast which in turn aids tasks where clarity is helpful such as food preparation, applying makeup, reading, artwork or needle craft. Studies have also linked higher CRI to improved temperament and productivity and given that such light is more natural to humans, it is not difficult to see why this might be the case.
