LayoutHaving a distinctive yet simple layout is crucial so that your customers can find exactly what they are looking for. A shop fitter can assist with the planning stages by suggesting where partitioning systems may be best placed. Partitions can be fitted easily to create walls. Stock can be hung from wall partitions or they may also be used as a guide around the shop for the customer.2. FlooringThe type of flooring you decide on is an important aspect of your shop interior. A shop fitter will be able to assist with your flooring choice in terms of both practicality and design.3. LightingThe aspect of lighting can often be overlooked when contemplating how to re-design a retail space, yet is an effective technique to create the atmosphere.

There are also other unique lighting options such as coloured bulbs or spotlights.4. ElectricalsDuring the planning stages of your new retail space, you will need to consider any electrical requirements. For example, the best places for plug sockets.
