Lighting for cosmetics stores

Lighting in a drogerie store combines two important elements – high-quality lighting of the shelves with the product and the creation of a minimum amount of shadows and glare, which will help the buyer to appreciate the true color of the product.

Light for a cosmetics and perfumery store should be soft enough, diffused, and have good color rendering so that the customer can clearly distinguish the shades of cosmetics and other products.

Unless required by the concept of the store, we do not recommend using warm light to illuminate drogerie stores. When choosing such lighting, the perception of the color of the tested product may be distorted, therefore, upon further use, the buyer will be disappointed in the purchase.

In small mono-brand cosmetics stores, non-standard design lighting solutions can be used that echo the brand’s concept, which will allow the buyer to get maximum aesthetic pleasure in contact with your brand.

    2. Installation of lamps is carried out from the side or from above. It is strictly forbidden to direct the beams into the eyes of customers.
    3. For products that are placed on the floor, it is better to use a bottom light. Here it is worth choosing a dim and diffused light.
    4. Shopping center lighting and display lighting shouldn’t be very different. It is imperative to follow a harmonious concept.

    Following these simple rules, your shop window will shine with new colors, which entails an increase in the target audience.
