If you are in the process of fitting out a shop, you will want to be certain that you are taking all the necessary steps to ensure that your store both looks great while also offering great functionality. Read on to discover 4 things you need to consider before calling in a shopfitting service.


If customers can't easier navigate your store and find the products they wish to purchase, they will probably become discouraged and move on to a competitor's shop. It can pay to install signs above each aisle displaying info about the products which are shelved there. You should also install signage which points customers in the direction of the toilets and the exit.


Shopfitters can offer you bespoke shelving which is custom-made for your store. The benefit of installing custom-made shelving is that it will be designed to fit perfectly into place. This can help you to maximise the amount of shelving which is available. It is also important to consider the height of the shelving. While stacking products high up to the ceiling may seem wise, if it prevents customers from easily reaching the products, it could be very foolish indeed. Ideally, all products which are for sale should be within easy reach of your customers. Any high selves should be used for storing stock which is yet to be displayed for sale.


When it comes to making products look appealing to the eye, lighting can work miracles. When fitting out a shop, it always pays to think about the lighting. A shopfitting contractor can install floodlights which are embedded into the floor. This type of light will make any product placed over it look spectacular. You may also wish to install directional spotlights in the ceiling which can be pointed towards different displays and goods.


Finally, you will need to decide on the number and position of the counters in your store. While more counters will allow you to install more pay points, it could also make your store look crowded and confusing. If you are in any doubt about the number of counters you need, it is always better to be cautious as it is typically easier to install more counters at a later date rather than to have them removed.
