Design Standards for Retail Shops

Design Standards for Retail Shops

The retail industry has transformed a lot with the new age of technology and innovations. However, the primary goal of a sound retail strategy is still unchanged, which is delivering value in the supply chain and creating a unique customer experience. If retailers can successfully contend for their customer`s attention, nothing can stop their retail shop business to flourish. One of the best ways to do this is to focus on the design standards for the retail shop in a way that the environment and the aesthetics capture the overtaxed attention of the customers.

Humans are highly visual, and therefore it is vital to create a visually appealing and stimulating store design. It is very important to spend your time building a great design to provide a better customer experience and to boost sales. Overall, the objective of the retail store design is to create a positive impact and value.

Essential Principles for Retail Shop Design

Your Space Defines Your Brand

The first thing to do is define your space. You need to maintain consistency in your style and your work in the store because it reflects your brand and image. Ask yourself what you wish to sell and what the targeted audience is! Think whether you just want to focus on products or also concentrate on providing customers with a suitable and comfortable experience. Putting extra effort into thinking about retail shop space requirements always helps to make sure that customers linger for a long period and make multiple purchases.

Enhanced Visual Communication

Signage, branding and other graphical information help you in communicating essential information to the customers. Each element of the store should be following the store’s visual branding design. It enhances the customer's experience and encourages them to frequently visit your retail shop.

A Well-organized Space

The space in your shop must be well organized and easy to use. There should be clear and logical product grouping. Besides this, clear signposts about the path to follow is another key feature of a well-organized retail shop. It makes customers feel comfortable as well as protected and also saves their time. Also, offering sequential experience and using digital as well as physical advertisements is a great idea to work upon.

Influence Customer Buying Behaviour

Understanding customer flow and the common patterns that emerge when customers interact with merchandise based on the store design layout is critical to retail management strategy ( ). Store design should attract customers and keep them in the store for a long period. It should encourage them to make more unplanned visits with multiple purchases and overall provide them with a satisfying customer experience.

Different Types of Design Criteria for Retail Shops

A retail store layout (be it physical or digital) is the strategic use of space to influence the customer experience. The way a customer interacts with your merchandise affects their purchase behaviour. A retailer can consider quite a few layouts for retail shops such as Grid, Herringbone, Loop, Free-flow, Straight or Spine, Diagonal or Angular or Geometric.

Before coming up with the final design, one has to consider many factors associated with department store design guidelines such as the shopfront zone and closure, the materials to be used, graphics and signage, ceilings, floors and walls, fixtures, visual merchandising, audiovisual technology and store security. Let's take a look at some of the design criteria for your retail shops taking into account the retail space requirements:

Kiosk Design Criteria

A kiosk refers to a small and temporary standalone booth used in high traffic places such as a supermarket or retail shop for marketing purposes. They can be manual or electronic, offering a low-cost alternative for the marketing of products. It helps to raise brand awareness and provide an interactive way for customers to engage with the company. The kiosk can help validate products as customers nowadays demand more interactive features. In today's ultra-competitive business environment, one cannot afford not to consider using a kiosk if you want your retail store to flourish.

Tenancy Design Criteria

Tenant is a combination of factors, including the number of units occupied by different retail services ( ). It is the combination of business establishments occupying space in a shopping center to form an assemblage that provides optimum sales, revenue and financial stability for your venture. Tenant fulfils all the underlying store design guidelines for maximizing retail shops profitability and is investor-oriented.

Sustainable Design Criteria

The key to achieving sustainable design is in making considerations while planning the design process. When it comes to sustainable design, it should focus on long term use. Besides this, the design should have impactful materials and must be environmentally friendly. It should also use renewable energy consumption. Optimizing operational and maintenance practice always leads to sustainable retail shops.
