How Shopfitting Can Improve Your Retail Space

Posted on: 21 May 2021

When thinking about the design of your business, you are likely more concerned with how it looks rather than the purpose it serves. After all, if your shop looks good, then more people are likely to come in, stick around and end up buying something. However, it does not have to be one or the other. Shopfitting, when done well, accentuates the products while still being a very quality piece of material that will last you a long time. Here are a few ways in which shopfitting can improve your retail space for the foreseeable future. 

Maximise Floorspace

The most valuable feature in your retail store is the floor space you have to work with. It is finite, so you have to be clever with how you manage your displays, stands and other devices like fridges. Shopfitting that is custom made to your store can increase the useable space by quite a significant amount. Even just by getting thin, well-made displays can decrease the space needed for each lane by several centimetres. Add that up over a whole store, and you can get another whole lane out of the space, or perhaps something more unique like a display showcase.

Using Deadspaces

Being clever about how you utilise every aspect of your store is a must. Not everything has to be displayed on a stand, Smaller items can be sat on a shelf attached to the wall, others can be suspended down from the ceiling and so on. These places that you might ordinarily discard as useless can become central to your business if you know how to use them. Talking with a shopfitting contractor can help open your eyes to the numerous different paths you can take that can give your business a unique but still very efficient presence that customers love.


Quality shopfitting fixtures should last you well over a decade. There is no reason why anything you use in your store should last less than that, and if it does, then it is a sign to spend a little bit more on a quality replacement. This task of turning your retail store into a very effective space for marketing and selling products is something you only need to do once, but you need to do it well because it will affect your business for years to come. That is why you should spend as much time as you can designing and planning a renovation before you pull the trigger. The longer it lasts, the more money you save.
