Key Lighting Areas for Auto Dealerships

Key lighting areas for auto dealerships are essential for creating an inviting and functional space; one that showcases vehicles effectively and provides a pleasant and inviting experience for customers. Proper lighting can also enhance overall aesthetics of the showroom and improve safety. Following are some of the major lighting areas to consider in an auto dealership:

Showroom Lighting

General Lighting: Ambient lighting should provide even illumination throughout the showroom. LED or fluorescent fixtures can be energy-efficient options.

Accent Lighting: Use accent lighting to highlight specific vehicles or key features, such as spotlights or track lighting.

Color Temperature: Choose a warm (around 3000K) to neutral (around 4000K) color temperature for a welcoming and natural look.

Dimmable Lights: Dimmable fixtures allow you to adjust the lighting to create different atmospheres and emphasize certain areas or vehicles.

Exterior Lighting

Parking Lot Lighting: Adequate lighting in the parking lot ensures safety for customers and staff during evening hours.

Building Facade Lighting: Illuminating the dealership’s exterior, signage, and architectural features can make it more visible and appealing to passersby. CLS outdoor lighting products …
