Why is warm light better than cool light?

Warm light and cool light are often associated with different moods and functionalities, making one not necessarily better than the other. However, warm light is often considered “better” in settings where a cozy, welcoming, or relaxing ambiance is desired, such as in living rooms or bedrooms.

Warm light tends to reduce eye strain and is better for relaxation and winding down before sleep, as it doesn’t interfere with human circadian rhythms as much as cool light.
