Track lighting is often used for display tables and larger items, configured for wall washing to give you even illumination across a larger area. Track heads and lighting products of 20W, 30W and even 40W can be used in these situations, most commonly to cover items on display from all angles.
Both cool and warm colours are used in museums, depending on the exhibit; this right tone can help bring the room to life and give it a more realistic feeling. Let’s say, for example, that there is an area of a natural history museum where sea creatures are being shown. In this case, a cooler colour might be a good option, to simulate the light you would experience in a sea environment. The Color Rendering Index (CRI) also has a big effect on the colours that are displayed and how they appear. LED lights are the closest to standard daylight, which makes them the best option for museum item display.
