A new study from the University of Texas-Austin (UT-Austin) suggests that the answer to this question is, indeed, a bit of both.
The UT-Austin researchers have compiled a list of more than 500 bathroom lights that they claim are ideal for bathroom lighting.
The study found that of these, about 50 percent of the lights have a green, amber or red aesthetic, and a third are neutral.
The remaining lights, meanwhile, tend to be white, gray, red, blue, or green.
This is where it gets interesting, because some of these neutral or neutral lights are just a bit too much.
The UT-Avengers team found that for the 50 percent lights, their total wattage is about 0.02 watts, while for the neutral lights, it’s about 0,08 watts.
That means the light is just a tad too bright.
So if you’re in a home that’s only going to be using the bathroom for about 30 minutes, you may not want to pay the extra for a more neutral color.
