Every business owner knows that it is vital to keep your premises looking fresh and up-to-date. Potential customers can be put off by a storefront that doesn’t look like it’s cared for, and that first impression should show exactly the opposite. A dated, run-down storefront tells a story of product that may not be in the best condition and a store interior that may be unpleasant and unkempt.
When you are considering a renovation for your storefront, here are some things to consider:
- Take a look at the newer developments around town and see what’s hot. It can be pretty simple to update your facade, so once you get a feel for what the trend may be, choose your favorite look (keeping zoning laws in mind, of course) and take the next step to update your storefront. You can even have a “Grand Re-Opening” event, and that would be a great time to bring in new product and update your merchandising plans.
- There’s no question that bringing more natural light into any building is a benefit. If you are going to renovate, consider more, or bigger, windows, to make that happen. This renovation piece alone will give your storefront a whole new look and feel.
- Those new windows and doors can be more energy-efficient and earth-friendly, too, and will probably save you a bundle in energy costs. There are lots of new products on the market today that focus on these kinds of considerations, and being sensitive to the climate these days is something that your customers will find appealing.
- While renovating your storefront, you can also take steps to make your location safer for your customers and your staff. Removing old design factors that could possibly have created issues, such as small, hard-to-see steps, or loose tile door jams is always a good idea. Adding handrails and other items that make for those who need extra assistance can also take your business to a whole new level of attraction for existing and projected patrons alike.
