Lighting for a hardware and gadget store
Lighting for a store of household appliances and gadgets solves two main tasks. The first is to allow the buyer to carefully consider the product and its details because most often it is not a cheap product, and the buyer will use it for more than one year. The second task that can be solved by lighting – to focus on promotional products and new products, which will increase sales of this product.
Features of lighting of an electronics store:
- when developing a project, it is necessary to prevent the effect of glare on screens, especially for TVs, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones;
- to create a uniform directional light that will allow the buyer to see the product well;
- to combine general and accent lighting. General lighting will allow the buyer to orientate themselves well in the store, and accent lighting will highlight promotional products, novelties, special offers and help draw the customer’s attention to these products.
In almost all stores, if the concept of the store does not require anything else, we use lamps with a cold spectrum from 4200-5000 K. It is also worth paying attention to such an indicator as color rendering, we advise you to choose it not lower than Ra ≥80 for general lighting and Ra ≥90 for accent lamps. As for the illumination level, here it is worth paying attention to the nuances – for light equipment it can be in the range of 400-500 lux, and for dark equipment, the illumination level should be increased to 600-700 lux.
