I am currently working on a render of a simple object. And for the lighting, I would like some user input.

In general, do you prefer scenes with warmer lighting, or colder lighting?

If you're doing a studio render of an isolated model, best to keep it pure white.
White balance mostly boils down to personal preference (what you want to convey), speaking in more general photography terms. If you want it to seem inviting, warmer lighting, if you want it to feel mysterious, icy cold lighting, etc. yadda yadda. A big part of lighting is to set the mood. If you don't really need/want a mood, keep it as neutral of a white as possible (and given that you're using a computer, pure neutral white lighting is very easy to achieve).

Read about the lighting triangle.
You can use both warm and cold lights in your scene. For example, using a warm light as the main one and cold one for the fill, in this case you would get some nice blueish shadows
