A Conscious person is someone that cares. Cares about the environment, quality and the origin of their fashion garments. They care about the way they were created and produced, and what effect they have on our environment. They don’t mind paying for quality and want to make a subtle visual statement with their outfit. The value-based statement is however more important.
The changing room is where choices and decisions around a purchase are made and therefore one of the most important areas of a shop. In a shop that focuses on genuine quality of their products a high quality lighting is crucial for the customer to be able to grasp the quality of the fabrics. The natural feeling is achieved with soft and even lighting and an interior in fair and natural colours.
There are a few general ideas when it comes to lighting in changing rooms. The aim is to cover the whole body with vertical light from, for example, the mirror. If the light is directed only from above it is impossible to cover the whole body. By adding accent lighting you increase the experience and the texture of the clothes.
The lighting design to apply depends on the feeling you want to achieve and also the kind of garments the customers will try on. If there is one particular kind of item, for example swim wear, the lighting should be designed for that purpose. If there is as shop with a large range of products the lighting needs to be less specific, more versatile.
Illuminating a changing room:
Design after the items on display:
Accent light illuminates the customer from the front. This enhance shapes and the outline of the garment.
Accentuated lighting with a warm colour temperature like 2800 K has a cosy feeling and complimentary colour of the face and body.
The cove light gives an indirect, vertical light.
Here is the same solution as the 2800 K with accent light but with 3000 K on the accent lighting and 4000 K on the cove light.
This solution has a pendant with 3000 K and no accent lighting. The cove light is 3000 K behind the mirror. This solution has a soft feeling and there are very few accents.
In this solution there is 4000 K from the pendant, cove light behind the mirror and a diffused vertical light from the luminaire in the corner to get light on the back as well.
Warm accent light:
Mixed accent light:
3000 K and no accent light:
There is possibility to control the lighting with the purpose of saving energy but more importantly to have a choice in achieving the light level of your personal taste. Having a low light level when entering makes it comfortable to try on clothes.
The lighting has the ability to increase the light level as you try on clothes. This will also save energy. A dimmed LED-module also has a longer life.Get to know more about lighting controls
