Lighting Up

An expert suggests five ways to light right

Paying attention to lighting fixtures is a subtle way to keep your store looking clean and modern. Display & Design Ideas magazine spoke with Diana Mesh, director of product management for Zumtoel Staff Lighting in Highland, NY, about the five most important trends in retail lighting:

  • Recessed multilamp fixtures offer downlighting and a flexible track in one fixture, creating a streamlined look.
  • Compact fluorescent fixtures replace large fluorescent lights and incandescent downlights.
  • Brighter ceilings replace "dark light" with increased use of white reflectors and louvers and fewer specular louvers.
  • Matte metal replaces shiny, chrome finishes on fixtures.
  • Luminous panels in ceilings and walls combined with miniature downlights for sparkle create a clean look.
