Are you looking to make a big impact with your retail renovations? Focus your efforts and dollars where it will count the most. An effective store design can make a good impression on your potential customers and encourage them to shop around. Sprucing up a few key areas of the store with retail renovations can make the greatest difference in the store appearance and future-sales success. If you’re ready for a commercial retail renovation, schedule your first meeting with the Encore Construction team today. The following are a few thoughts we wanted to share regarding a retail renovation.
Spruce Up the Storefront
The storefront makes the first and greatest impression on any shopper. Façade renovations can help promote your business and let others know there are exciting changes within the store too. Keeping up the storefront and entrance’s appearance is crucial. The impression your store makes on potential customers rests within their transition from the busy outside into your specific store ambiance.
Check the Lighting
Lighting is critical to creating the mood throughout the store. Adjust or change the lighting during your retail renovation so that it better fits your store’s services. Clothing or apparel retailers may want to install brighter lights while a cafe owner may want to create a cozier setting with dimmer, warmer lights. If your budget does not accommodate changing all the lights in a store, focus on areas you would like to highlight.
Repaint the Walls
A fresh or new paint job can also be beneficial for a retail renovation. Neutral colored paints are great options for letting products stand out against a more subdued background. However, your retail space can use some creative liberty and make your walls something more unique. Painting an accent wall, using wallpaper, or incorporating wall decals and panels adds interest to the store interior.
Install New Flooring
Consider replacing the flooring during the retail renovation. You can try deep cleaning the floors to see if they are salvageable. However, scuffed-up or worn-out carpet and vinyl flooring should be replaced to handle high foot traffic as well as complement your brand image. If there are multiple flooring options you are eyeing for your renovation project, see if you can get a mix of different flooring installed to mark separate sections or direct foot-traffic throughout the store.
