Importance of Lighting in Retail Spaces

Task lighting refers to lights that are concentrated in areas of the store that require more illumination, such as the tills and changing rooms. Customers require more lighting in the changing room in order to accurately assess the fit and appearance of the items they are trying on.

Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is lighting that can be utilized to draw customer attention to particular products and give customers the impression that these products are important and noteworthy. Accent lighting is an excellent way to draw attention to seasonal products as well as specific products on shelves or in display nooks. Accent lighting is also very effective in window displays because it visually emphasizes a store's products and helps draw people in.

Ambient Lighting

The main lighting in a store is referred to as ambient lighting. Companies must ensure that their customers have enough light to feel at ease in the store. When the lighting is too dim, the store appears dingy, making it difficult to read product labels and uncomfortable customers. Customers, on the other hand, are irritated if the lighting is too bright. The size of your space will determine the number of lights and their brightness. A large warehouse-style space with high ceilings will necessitate a large number of powerful lights because they will be hung fairly high up and must illuminate a large area. To achieve the same level of lighting, a small store will require dimmer, less powerful lights.

Task Lighting

Task lighting refers to lights that are concentrated in areas of the store that require more illumination, such as the tills and changing rooms. Customers require more lighting in the changing room in order to accurately assess the fit and appearance of the items they are trying on. Stores' cashiers require additional lighting so that they can see their tills and do their jobs more effectively. Task lighting can also be used to highlight a store's sign and entrance area so that customers can clearly read a store's name and are welcomed inside.
