Kerrie Kelly, I do not want a yellow type light but would prefer a cleaner light. I came across one fixture that was 5000k and the color was described as "Daylight" Do you agree with what mousy-marj said just above? Does warm white have a yellow cast to it? My lights will be on a dimmer. Thanks for your input.

The colour temperature of Incandescent bulbs gets warmer as you dim them. LED lights do not unless you buy special fixtures.

I made the mistake of using 5000k bulbs, my living room looked like a jewelry store and not in a good way
