LEDs have numerous practical applications, from saving energy, creating a brighter lit area and so much more. But don’t be afraid to get creative with LED lighting as well. You can use LED retail lighting to guide customers to and through your stores, while highlighting your products and saving you money on your energy bill! Here are a few tips and tricks on how to use LED retail lighting in your store.
Use LEDs to Set the Mood
Before purchasing LEDs for your store, it’s important to know what type of lighting you want to complement your overall look. LED factors to consider are color temperature and CRI.
Color temperature describes the color of light your LEDs will cast on a spectrum of warm to cool. If you are looking for a warmer toned storefront with a cozier feel, look for LEDs in the range of 3000k to 4000k. If you want your storefront to have a crisp, clean look and feel to it, look for LEDs in the range of 5000k to 6000k.
CRI indicates how accurately light portrays colors. For the best lighting, you want an LED bulb with a high CRI rating. The closer to 100, the better! This will show your products and their packaging in the best light possible.
Make LEDs the Guiding Light to Products and Deals
Not only can you use LED retail lighting creatively to create an overall look and feel for your storefront, you can also use it strategically. Take advantage of LED spot lighting to draw customers’ attention to sales racks, new arrival items or displays with special offers. You can use track lighting to create a subtle path through the store to drive traffic further into the store, where people are likely to stay longer. The options are endless!
