Your workplace (store) should not be a boring stall with shelves, hangers and mannequins. You can turn it into a vibrant, modern boutique affordably. Here are a few affordable boutique decor ideas to liven your store.
How to Furnish Your Boutique Stylishly
Wallpaper is trendy, and it enhances the appearance of plain walls. Wallpaper does what paint cannot, and wallpaper design options for your store include soft floral nature-inspired designs and stripes. Brick, tiles and natural stone styles go well with any other décor you may add to the store.
Display your products in sections
We have always thought that a great store displays dozens of clothes behind a counter. In such a design, a buyer cannot move around the store to explore the variety available. Have you seen the Dash stores owned by the Kardashians? Their products are on countertops, shelves, racks, etc.
Locally, visit Jade Collection, and their display will amaze you. Do the same in your store – fold shirts, place hats on shelves, display shoes along the walls – to use every inch of space.
Use half mannequins in a boutique with limited space
Do not stuff a small store. Instead, use half mannequins.
Add furniture like an ottoman
An ottoman serves a functional and aesthetic purpose because shoppers can relax on it. This piece of furniture will be the highlight of the room.
Your store lighting matters
Do away with the single fluorescent lighting and install small lamps on the wall or the ceiling. First, ask your electrician what installations are practical in your store so that you do not have electric cables crisscrossing the space
Jade Collection and Lingerie World in Nairobi have some of the best-themed window displays. Choose a theme, and have a store display to match. For example, go for a Valentine’s Day theme in February and a beach holiday theme in December.
Invest in movable racks
Replace the conventional wall-mounted clothes rail with movable racks. They give you greater flexibility to modify your store decor weekly or monthly.
In conclusion, aim to please and retain every customer who visits your boutique. Your customer service, product quality, and charming ambience will do the trick.
