Designing a retail space, is always challenging and involves a lot of thinking and planning. One of the most important challenges that the client poses to us as interior decorators Bangalore, is to design the space within the given budget. Retail designs are targeted towards the customers. Enticing, appealing colours, décor and interesting accessories presented in a well-lit space will always have customers walking in.
Here are some low cost interior design ideas that can help you entice customers into your shop
Vivid colours work well to arrest people’s attention. Bold neon colours, not only grabs one’s attention but also gives an illusion of a larger space. Vivid paint colours or even nice textured wallpapers can be used to create a lovely décor for the store.
Strict ‘no’ to clutter
Cluttered space or shops are a strict ‘no’ where decor is concerned. While people might hesitate to get into a shop that is totally cluttered with stuff, it becomes highly difficult for the sales executives to show anything of value to the customers. Plan the layout of the shop carefully and use the window space to showcase large items. Wall accessories like shelves and dividers can be used to showcase small items that is on sale.
Lighting is one of the most crucial elements of interior decoration. It is a very vital aspect, where retail store interior design is concerned, as proper lighting can either make or break the shop. Lighting can be used effectively to create an illusion of space, to awe and stun the customers and to make them see the most treasured and precious merchandise that is on sale. Using a combination of track, accent and ambient lighting, the space around the store can be planned.
Think out of the box
The classic shelf approach where merchandise is displayed is fast disappearing. It is being replaced by innovative and out-of-the-box ideas that not only ensure a stunning display but also saves a lot of space for the store.
Stores that stock a variety of items can sort them all together to form a square space based on the theme. To that end, we would recommend the use of interesting dividers to demarcate space and theme. Multi-purpose dividers not only work as great boundaries but also help to store things.
Painting one side of the wall with a bright vivid colour, will not only look stunning but will also make the space look larger, than it is. The accent wall can be used for special displays and to showcase merchandise that the store considers to be their speciality.
Optimum use of windows
Windows are the most important spaces for retail stores. Designing the window not only requires proper planning, it is also important to keep this space as creative as possible. Window displays are the most important advertisements that would generate walk-ins for the store.
