Three Common Shop-fitting Design Challenges and How to Overcome Them

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

The layout design of your shop or store decides the fate of your sales. It should be both aesthetically pleasing and accessible at the same time. Shopfitters ensure that your shop meets these two primary requirements by installing all the necessary equipment, fixtures, and fittings according to their design plans.

During the process of shopfitting, shopfitters come across three main challenges:

1. Abrupt changes

2. Different materials of installations

3. Complex floor plans

Abrupt Changes

Changes that you do not see coming can halt the shopfitting process. The key here is to be flexible.

For example, when the covid-19 virus spread across countries worldwide, all businesses either had to scale down their operations or come completely shut down. The Australian construction and shopfitting industry, however, stayed up and running by strictly following regulations that adhere to Covid-19 SOPs and simultaneously promote construction activity. Shopfitters created Covid-secure work environments and eliminated any sources that could contribute to the spread of the virus.

Different Materials of Installations

Fixtures and equipment come in a variety of materials. Combining products made of different materials such as plastic, wood, glass, and metal can be a daunting task as it is time-consuming to plan the shopfitting design from the ground up.

Shopfitters can escape this challenge by leveraging product customization, where they can decide the material of all store products, so the appearance of the store remains consistent and coherent, welcoming customers inside.

Complex Floor Plans

Not all stores stand on a solid, even ground, such as in malls or commercial markets. In fact, many of them are in old factories, lofts, or near gas stations in hilly areas. It makes the process of shopfitting vulnerable to delays as this challenge, again, requires thorough planning of the floor design to keep the architecture of these locations intact.

To overcome this challenge, shopfitters can use the latest technology to assess floor specifications of these complex structures and revise the floor plan with minimal delays.
