Tailoring your retail space

In order to plan and create the perfect shop fitting for your retail space, there are a number of angles and questions that need to be posed.

Firstly, what is it that you’re looking to achieve in the end? Of course this will be closely linked to the business objectives of the business, but there needs to be a detailed ideas around what the priorities are with the project. Is having the trendiest, most visually appealing space for your products the most important objective? Or is having a well functioning and sales/traffic driven approach suitable for your business?

Following this, it is important to think about the most important people who will be setting foot in your shop – the customers. To be able to design and create the perfect shopping space for your business, it is vital to understand the customer’s journey, where do they enter? Where do they walk? Do they need a lot of space? All of this is important information.

One final, and equally important, consideration is context and competition. This is where you need to think about the surroundings of your shop, and how it can distinguish itself from local competitors that could be in the immediate vicinity. Whether this is through how it looks, the sounds you hear entering the shop through to outside signage, there are many customisable elements that can be worked on.
