The LED Lights to Choose for Retail Spaces

Lighting in your store serves many purposes beyond providing a way for customers to see. The right lighting setup can help your customers feel more at home in your store and encourage them to spend more time wandering the aisles or looking at displays.

Whether you’re opening a new store or are looking to upgrade your current lighting setup, you can’t go wrong with LED lights. They are more energy efficient, more reliable, and the cost savings in maintenance alone makes the investment well worth it. Here are a few of the common LED lights that retail owners should consider upgrading or adding to their location.

Track Lights

Accent lighting is an essential component as it will highlight specific areas such as item display shelves or your décor. For this purpose, you’ll find that track lights are incredibly useful as you can mount them from the ceiling and then angle them downward to shine on a specific shelf or piece of décor like a painting or photo. Look for ones that are dimmable so you can set the mood just right.

Spot Light Bulbs

Task lighting is crucial in areas such as above the checkout counter, in a dressing room, or in an office. LED spotlight bulbs are great options for task lighting because they produce a great deal of light in a small form. You can choose various color temperatures to match your environment and the purpose of the light. You should also consider the fixture you would like to use these lights in as they are versatile and can work in a variety of situations.

Dimmable A19 LED Bulbs

Decorative lighting is another crucial component of your lighting setup. Through decorative lighting, you have the opportunity to mix creative flair with utility, and dimmable A19 LED bulbs work well in this application. They pair well with a variety of lamps and other fixtures with dimmable functionality so you can make your decorative lamp a focal point of the area or just a small piece illuminating a dark corner or window display.

Fluorescent Replacement Tubes

With your accent, task, and decorative lighting fixtures in place, it’s time to address the gaps (if any) to fill for a bright and welcoming lighting setup. General or ambient lighting is the primary source of lighting for your store and needs to provide your customers with enough light to feel comfortable as they safely navigate the shop’s layout. There are a couple of choices for ambient lighting. If you have fluorescent tube fixtures in place and are happy leaving them as-is, you can look into swapping each energy-demanding fluorescent light with an energy-efficient LED tube that retrofits seamlessly. You’ll not only save on energy costs but also the quality of light will vastly improve for you and your customers.

If you want to go above and beyond, then LED panels are the way to go. They provide an even distribution of light without any dark spots and can brighten any space dramatically without the annoying flicker or warm-up period of fluorescent lights.
