Maybe if incandescent light bulbs weren't so awful people wouldn't be obsessed with having "warm" color LED lights and actually have something somewhat useful, like between 4000 and 5000 kelvin.
But what we have now is a market flooded with awful less-powerful than the incandescent 2000 kelvin LEDs which flicker in a really annoying way to save a few cents on a rectifier and some caps/resistors but are good enough to flog to people who only care about price and nothing else.

@lynne sunset is 1850K, so is candle flame. People have been used to warm light in evening for ages before lightbulbs. Makes your body more aware it's fuckin' late, time to slep.
