If you are trying to redecorate your store for new branding, then it’s likely that you’re looking for the fastest solution.
Start with a blank slate
Remove all old branding elements from your store, including signage, fixtures, and displays. This will give you a clean canvas to work with. While time may be of the essence, it’s still important to sit in the empty space and let your senses guide you to choices that feel on-brand for your new look.
Choose a new color scheme.
This is one of the most important aspects of your new look, so take some time to browse through different options and find something that reflects your brand’s personality. If keeping your color scheme is critical to the identity of your business, try working with a professional designer to find a complementary color to add something fresh and eye-catching to the mix.
Tackle cosmetic and structural issues.
If your building has had a leak or is an older build, there may be some necessary repairs needed before you can start decorating. Once everything is in good condition, you can start planning your cosmetic updates. You’ll want to make sure that your plumbing and electrical systems are up to par and will meet the requirements of adding ADA bathrooms, or those new window signs. Before you begin painting, you’ll also want to see if you’ll need commercial abatement services to safely handle lead-based paint issues. New branding begins with everyone’s well-being in mind.
Update your window displays.
This is a great way to make a big impact with minimal effort. Simply changing the color of your window treatments or adding new signage can give your store a whole new look. Curiosity alone will draw in old and new customers alike, so keep those window displays rotating with fresh items regularly.
Rearrange your furniture.
A new layout can make a big difference in the way your store feels. Moving items around don’t have to be a major undertaking – sometimes even just switching out a few pieces can create a whole new look. Be sure to keep traffic flow in mind as you’re rearranging. If you have special merchandise that draws a continuous crowd, try to designate a space to feature it! There’s something about grinding nut butter or dispensing honey into jars that keeps people coming back for more.
While these aren’t the only fast ways to redecorate your business, they are some of the most impactful. With a little bit of time and effort, you can give your store a whole new look that reflects your new branding. Much success to you!
