Basic Terms/Issues for Lighting
Ceiling Height: The height of a store’s ceiling is one of the most important factors that goes into a plan for lighting a jewelry store in such a way that the merchandise looks spectacular. As the source of light moves farther away from the merchandise, the power and intensity of the light diminishes. Stores with higher ceilings (over 9’) face some challenges with lighting. Stores with ceilings that are higher either have to use more lights that are spaced closer together to illuminate a showcase, or bring the light source closer by dropping down a track or using a pendant.
