Create your dream retail space for less
Some entrepreneurs shy away from the idea of building brick-and-mortar because they consider it to be an
expensive endeavour. The truth, however, is that there are multiple ways to cut down on business operation
costs. Below are some low-cost interior design ideas for your shop.
Use complementary colours
Natural tones and whites are known to reflect natural light. Therefore, it would be a good idea to add such
colours, as well as wall mirrors, to introduce dimension and expand your shop's visual space.
Use wall and ceiling fixtures to make your retail space appear bigger than it is.
If you have a low ceiling, for example, designers from Quantock Interiors can help create an illusion that
makes the ceiling appear higher and less conspicuous. They use a combination of techniques to achieve these
types of effects.
Inexpensive storage shelving
Glass cabinets and shelving are good for displaying all types of products. They offer high visibility to shoppers
and provide security without being obvious.
This is one of the best approaches for those who wish to create a sense of sophistication in their shop without
spending too much effort and time. The minimalist approach allows for redecorating changes. Also, it helps to
attract customers who like stylish simplicity.
Free up the traffic path
In your store, you want to ensure that there’s enough space to allow customers to move freely as they view
your merchandise. A good traffic flow design can help you improve the customer's experience. Quantock
Interiors creates great purchase paths that are easy to follow.
Cater to all the senses
Interior design is not just about making a store look nice. It’s about making the dweller or visitor feel
welcomed and comfortable. Design a store that has a quality sound system —if you plan on playing music in
your retail space.
Use different textures on the walls, ceiling, and display units to cater to the customer’s sense of touch. Install
oil diffusers in your shop to make it smell good and inviting.
