Buying Furniture For A Store Vs Purchasing Exhibition Display System
One of the things about modern furniture, including shopfitting features and cabinets, is that there needs to be a better balance between design and practicality. When it is practical furnishing, people often think of it as ‘boring’ or ‘does not stand out’. When the furniture or exhibition display is modern and loud, some contend that they are not practical, both in terms of cost AND design.
Well, that’s the tricky bit about picking the right furniture and display system for your store. If it is a new store that you are just opening, you are luckier than those who have been in business because while you do not have to contend with old furniture or need to take down existing fixtures, existing businesses and retail stores do. Deciding on new display systems for the store sometimes affects which old furniture you want to keep and which to discard or donate.
Do you need to hire an interior designer to revamp the store and help you decide which shopfitting display system to throw out and which to keep? I have to be honest – with the help and input from a professional comes in handy. But you do NOT have to have one. You can very well do your own research about display units available on the internet or ask around amongst your friends. I am sure they have pretty good taste too about what sticks and what does not.
Color scheming might also be another problem with replacing old display systems with new ones. Pick a supplier or company that provides for many options in terms of design. If need be, there isn’t a matching color that goes with your store’s color scheme, go for the classic colors like black, white and grey. You can match the other furniture and display stands instead.
After searching through the internet, you will find countless number of futuristic-looking store furniture that piques your interest – once again, we are here to remind you that unless you intend for the furniture to really stand out in your store, forget it. On the other hand, we strongly encourage store owners who regularly participate in exhibitions and conventions to invest in a futuristic display units so that it DOES stand out in the crowd.
Buying furniture for your store is a completely different ballgame from purchasing exhibition display systems. For the store, you need for it to be in sync with the rest of the furniture and interior of the outlet. For an exhibition, you need it to stick out, stand out and be loud!
Good luck and don’t forget to have some fun exploring the ideas that you will find on the internet!
