"Warm" light vs "Cold" light in description of recipes and items, please

Too many times now, I've been disappointed in buying lighting and only after placing it, discovering it throws off a cold light when I wanted warm light. Yesterday took the cake though. I spent 125 writ vouchers on the Telvanni Masterworks pattern (the candelabra), farmed for the heartwood, made the item, and merrily went to place it in a dining area. To my horror, it cast a ghastly blue light over a large area, so much so that I cannot use it. I humbly request that all lighting recipes and items include in the description which type of light they throw. Thanks!

    If possible, I recommend testing new pieces on the PTS.

    Use the item preview, if the flame coming off a lighting source is blue it will be cold light, if it's orange/yellow it will be warm. Problem solved.

    Doesn't work, some lights are really inconsistent, some have an area on the size of a squirrel while some yellow crystals shine blue.

    Yeah they need to rework the preview so we can see lighting better and how far the light goes out. Give us some kind of standard or put our characters next to it so we can do a judge distance check that way as well.

    Using a website such as ESO Fashion can be helpful as it usually shows you the scale of items and hints at what is emitted:

    They are good but I really wish that they add a part where we can see the lighting better. Like take a picture of said light in the dark. That and one in light for good measure.
