If the value of K is greater the product is favored and if its is smaller the reactant. This makes sense because K is calculated with products in the numerator and the reactants in the denominator. So if K is greater that means the numerator is bigger, which signifies a favor in the products.

if k is in between those values, then neither the reactants or the products are favored. if it is less, then reactants are favored, and if it is greater, then the products are favored
Actually, if k is between those values, it is still considered product favored (between 0 and 10^3) or reactant favored (between 0 and 10^-3). It's just that if k is larger than 10^3 or smaller than 10^-3 it can be considered STRONGLY product or reactant favored, respectively.
