Three Tips for Creating the Perfect Shop Front Design

Your shop front is literally your window into the world. The design and way you manage your shop front speak volumes about the value within it. Therefore, it’s imperative to make the most of the opportunity your shop front design represents. Below are three tips for creating the perfect shop front design.

Choose the right glass

You want to make your shop front as eye-catching as possible which is why glass is the best material to use and getting the right style of glass is very important.

You might be thinking ‘yes, but as long as passers-by can see it that's all that matters?’ That much is true but remember glass comes in many different forms which is why you need to take the time to find the right glass for you.

With high quality and low-quality glass, you might feel there is no obvious difference but subconsciously it is extremely noticeable so take time to find the right fit for your shop front. Also, remember to take in the surrounding area and aesthetics so that your shop front doesn’t look out of place and is the most appropriate for your products or services.

It’s about the light

With the right style of glass chosen the next thing to think about is the light and how you can make the most of it. Large glass shop fronts benefit from the natural light which will help save on energy bills as well as make the interior look bigger in some cases.

With interior lighting choose downlights as they will highlight the products in the shop window. You need to take into consideration factors such as the density of the glass and the positioning of the tint, all of which can have an effect on those people entering your shop front.

You might want to consider using coloured lighting that suits your products and has an overall positive effect on the ambience.

Aluminium shop front

Your shop front is going to battle the elements, so it is important to pick a material that is long-lasting and durable. The use of aluminium in shop front design is very common and this would be the best choice.

Aluminium is also corrosion resistant so it can withstand all manner of weather conditions. At R&M Shop Fronts we can add a surface treatment, such as powder coating and anodising which can improve weather resistance even further.
