Your retail store lighting should do more than just help people view the merchandise. If you get creative with your lighting design, you can bring out the unique character of your business and leave a memorable impression on your customers. This is especially important for small, high-end boutiques.
One easy way to make this impression is by using unusual or unique store light fixtures. There are many creative designs on the market today that can both help bring in more business and make your store the type of place that customers will never forget.
Lit graphic cubes creative an effective, eye-catching advertisement
Do you have any advertisements in your store like a poster for a specific brand or product? One easy lighting trick is to replace the paper poster with a lit graphic cube. With these light fixtures, you can put whatever design you want on the front of the cube like your store logo, a slogan, or an advertisement.
Your lighting manufacturer will then put this special fixture together. A lit cube is a lot clearer and easier to see. While a regular advertisement is easy to ignore or overlook, a lit cube grabs the eye. It also brings spillover light, which is accent lighting for nearby products. Lit graphic cubes provide an easy way to improve your marketing while also contributing to your store lighting.
Make your background come to life with a glow wall
Another way to bring your store to life is with a glow wall light fixture. With these fixtures, you take a large photo and use it as a background on one of your store walls. A glow wall makes your store background much more vivid and creates a nice, subtle atmosphere. You can create many different types of backgrounds with this store lighting fixture.For example, you can use a photo of flowers or trees to give the impression of outdoors or a picture or of clouds to relax people. If you keep the other lights around your glow wall dim, it will make whatever you’re showing look more real and alive.
Artistic designs for almost any imaginable store light fixture
When it comes to unusual store lighting fixtures, the only limit is your imagination. Specialized lighting design is a growing field and many companies are willing to build exactly what you’re looking for. All you have to do is describe what you want and chances are someone will be able to build it for you.
Some of the more unusual store light fixtures on the market today include a lamp with a plant built around it, store security cameras that are combined with a light for extra accent lighting, lamps designed to look like snowflakes, trees, or like they’re made out of wood, and a set of fixtures that is designed to look like sparkling stars. If you have the budget and the imagination, you can do almost anything with your store lighting.
Don’t let your lighting design stay predictable and boring. Use these special store lighting fixtures to create an atmosphere as unique as your business.
