Go green with your shop fittings
To create an eco-friendly space for your business, you may want to make conscious adjustments to your shop
equipment. In this blog, Quantock Interiors shares some ways you can give back to Mother Nature while
maintaining the aesthetics and functionality of your shop’s interior space.
Create calm with renewable raw materials
Turn your retail space into a calm haven for your customers. With the help of professional shopfitters, you can
use renewable materials throughout your store to create a relaxed shopping environment.
Natural recycled timber, for example, can match your shop’s design and bring the outside into your interior
You may also use concrete floors to help protect the environment. Concrete comes with a range of finishes that
can complement your fit-out design.
Install energy-efficient lighting
Brighten your shop with LED bulbs. These bulbs last longer than traditional bulbs, thereby reducing e-waste
disposal rates. What’s more, LED lighting will enable you to minimise your maintenance costs.
Repurpose and reuse shop equipment
When remodelling your shop or designing a new one, it’s advisable to utilise used materials that are still in a
Repurposing materials will not only save you money but it will also reduce the amount of equipment you need
to dispose of.
No matter how clean your retail shop is, you’ll still have wastepaper in your dustbin. Reduce the paper you use
by switching to digital methods of creating and saving documents. Also, use eco-friendly stickers and labels on
your in-store displays.
Use eco-friendly paint
To avoid polluting the environment with odour, paint your walls with low VOC (volatile organic compound)
paint. You can get this type of paint in different shades. Water-based, low VOC paints are suitable for doors,
floors, window frames, and ceilings.
