When a display cabinet has no lighting, it’s hard to put items on – well, display. Archives, photographs, awards, artwork, and memorabilia that are meant to be highlighted tend to simply blend in with the background and get lost in the shadows.

Take this display case, for example. This is the “Before” picture, from the Good Samaritan Church in Ambridge, PA:

The picture is a bit blurry, but it’s easy to see the effect of placing items in a display cabinet without lighting. The shadows from the cabinet’s shelves make it hard to tell exactly what is supposed to be on display.

Now, the “After” picture:

Great lighting shows off every single item in the cabinet, putting them on display as was intended.

The products used in this project were our Microfluorescent T4 Light Fixtures. Thank you, Good Samaritan Church, for sharing these photos with us!

    What a dramatic difference on the display case with the new lighting. It is much more visually appealing than the “before picture.” Nice work!

      Thanks!!! We can’t take all the credit – our customer did the installation. It does look great, though!
