It does not matter the area of your business (restaurants, fashion, pharmacy, services, etc.): if you have a place where you serve your customers, you should make their visit always pleasant. Your commercial space is the clothing of your business: it must speak well of your brand and generate an awsome experience for the people who purchase your product.

Think about Starbucks: the quality of the coffee is not gourmet, and the product is expensive; but all its customers like the comfort of their coffee shops. Think of the smell of Zara Home venues or the warmth of Natura stores.

And if your product has been running well for some time… why should you invest in renovating your commercial space?

Why should I redesign my space?

1) I want to attract attention. Nothing better to gain visitors than the novelty, the ground-breaking, the striking. Be different from your competence. Or even be different from yourself: The Camper shoes brand stores have a unique interior design, different in each location.

2) My audience has changed. At what point did we stop visiting drugstores just to buy medicine? Now most of us can find beauty products, nutraceuticals, food supplements, baby products, etc. Not only ill people visit a pharmacy, so many of these spaces have acquired a more ‘cosmetic’ aspect.

3) My brand has changed. We may not like it, but online banking is an increasingly strong reality. New generations stop less and less at bank branches to carry out simple procedures. La Caixa has redesigned its branches to avoid counters and make them look like comfortable living rooms.

4) My space looks outdated. Trends change over time: the public changes habits, consumer trends are different, fashion evolves. Pans & Company has been able to reform the appearance of its stores incorporating contemporary finishes and graphic design.

5) My store needs renovations or repairs. We will not include photographs of commercial spaces with leaks, dampness, or yellowish paint on the walls. But we have all been into a bar, a fashion store or a showroom that could be rejuvenated if they invested in fixing their damages. Do not let laziness hurt your business: invest in renovations!
