The Key Requirements in Retail Display Lighting


Retail display lighting encompasses two primary types-Ambient Lighting and Accent Lighting.

  • Ambient lighting ensures a comfortable atmosphere for customers and staff, providing soft and uniform lighting to illuminate the display area.
  • Accent Lighting concentrates on highlighting specific items, especially those in high sales. Generally, the products displayed in retail shelving and cabinets will employ focused lighting.

As we know, each brand has a distinct positioning through store design styles. The strategic use of lighting is crucial in effectively conveying the unique essence, illuminating spatial layers and aspects, and showcasing product texture.

In clothing stores, the lighting design for display seems very important, guiding consumer product emotional connection to clothes, enhancing distinctive characteristics of clothing display, and claiming the sale direction and season fashion themes.

The primary purpose of product display is to promote the sale. This understanding leads us to the two guiding principles of display lighting.

  1. Firstly, to attract consumer attention. Great lighting solutions can evoke the desire of consumers, encouraging purchasing behavior.
  2. Secondly, to make consumers resonate. When lighting up products to present a clear expression to customers, lighting acts as a bridge between the products and customers, fostering emotional connection and resonance.

In the case of beauty and skincare products, lighting illuminates cleanliness and brightness display, expressing an approachable manner to customers and building trust for trial and purchase.

Based on that, four principles demand consideration while choosing lighting solutions:

  • Safety: for electrical equipment and materials considerations. It is also crucial to consider the impact of the environment, which products display, such as temperature, humidity, and heat dissipation.
  • Economy: energy efficiency is a priority of light choice, preferably a long lifespan, high efficiency, low consumption LED lights.
  • Practical: from the perspective of display shelving, the aim is to create a comfortable, prominent, and lively lighting showcase area. And lights not only meet current needs but also adapt future showcases.
  • Aesthetics: lighting in the display area serves both ambiance creation and space decoration. Adhering to the principle of 'seeing the light, not the fixture' effectively showcases the spatial depth, layers, and aspects. It also conveys the texture, color, and quality of unique displayed items, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the environment.
