Chicago area commercial remodeling company is featuring some of its best renovation design ideas for what makes the ideal shopping experience for consumers. Retail shoppers love to walk into fresh, newly decorated stores. But keeping a shop looking new, trendy, and fresh can be costly and difficult. So how does a shop owners decide when it’s time to renovate their store? It could be that they’ve grown tired of looking at the same peeling walls day after day, or they have some solid evidence based on customer feedback that a new, nicer storefront will greatly help their bottom line. Retail renovation is undertaken by most shop owners at some point or another, and it can be an excellent way to revitalize and expand a business. The following are some ideas provided by an expert contracting team about where to place one’s energy:
Shop Windows: One of the first things a passerby notices are the windows, because that’s what they’ll be looking through to view merchandise. Usually the bigger and cleaner, the better. This one doesn’t have to be too complicated—shoppers don’t want small windows creating a dimly lit space!
The Lighting: In addition to windows, what’s seen inside must be illuminated sharply. The lighting may also match an aesthetic or branding design. For instance, a shop that sells furniture and decorations for the Fall and Holiday months may benefit from a warm glow reminiscent of home. An electronics store, on the other hand, requires crisp white lights to fully display every detail.
Façade / Exterior Cladding: A common reason for retail renovation is a shop needs an entire new facade, including the logo, walls and aesthetic décor, which can all be managed during a renovation project and tailored to fit a company’s brand (based upon what’s most appealing to shoppers.) New exterior walls can also improve a shop’s insulation value, thus saving energy monthly.
Showcases: Another very important factor for a retail shop are the showcases that greet shoppers as they enter. During a retail renovation project, this is the opportunity to create a crowd-stopping interior display. Many retail shops change a major showcase on about a quarterly basis (often matching the seasons) but if the shop features a few main products sold all year long, a showcase may be permanent.
Interior Layout: A retail renovation project may include a redesign of the layout, sometimes matching an existing or new brand. This may include a revamped color scheme or even upgraded flooring or walls, the layout of the shelves, the front counter, etc.
Facilities Upgrades: A business expands, it becomes necessary sometimes to enhance the facilities. This may include spacing renovations, like the addition of a new bathroom or new maintenance or storage closets. A business may also need to upgrade its plumbing, add new toilets, faucets, etc.
A retail construction project may require a skilled architect to push things along. An interior design specialist may also be a good idea if a shop owner wants a particularly flashy and professionally designed interior space. And, regardless of how complex the project is, they will need a trustworthy, reliable commercial construction firm to handle the heavy lifting.
