Why are lumens integral to effective store environments?

Over the last few years, we’ve all got to know the technicalities of LED lighting a little better, with measures such as colour temperature now a common element we look to control in almost any environment, whether that be a retail environment or the home.

But as you’ll expect, there is much more to producing effective lighting for commercial environments than simply choosing the correct colour temperature.

Here, we’ll guide you through one of the more challenging topics, light output.

Interior designers, whether they’re focused on retail or architectural applications, are well versed with the importance of adding graphics to an environment.

An experience that makes customers forget about their phone.

An experience that they’ll remember, increasing brand awareness.
