How Studio SK can help your retail business
INTRIGUE AND ATTRACT CUSTOMERS
An important aspect for any independent retail business with a physical location. Create a high street presence starting externally with the shopfront, all the way through to a welcoming staff & sales counter.
PERSONIFY YOUR SMALL BUSINESS
I love to work closely with retail business owners to allow your business branding, personality and values to be an integral part of the interior design scheme, ensuring a unique and sympathetic outcome.
BESPOKE RETAIL DISPLAYS
Having custom designed displays and joinery ensures you get the most out of your space for your small business. I’ll design bespoke retail displays that are both functional and visually engaging as part of the customer shopping experience.
RETAIL INTERIOR DESIGN
What you can expect with a retail interior design project
As an interior designer I'll produce mood boards, layout plans, elevations and even 3D visuals for your project, with plenty of detailed notes and dimensions so trades people can provide accurate quotes and execute their work effectively.
I can also prepare FF&E schedules that serve as a practical reference for you to source from, or they can be used to obtain pricing from relevant suppliers.
I'll develop and produce technical designs for specific elements of retail interiors such as point of sale counters, fixed display shelving and storage, point of purchase displays, and other feature joinery unique to your small business - making for a memorable customer shopping experience.
I'll assess and give you suggestions of where to invest or save money during the project on things such as finishes, fixtures, or even whole parts of the site.
This approach ensures that the final interior design scheme is completely tailored to the unique needs and wants your small business, as well as budget.

About the interior design process
My process outlined below is an example of what a full interior design project can include from start to finish.
Here at Studio SK the design process typically follows the stages of the RIBA Plan of Work 2020 as indicated below within each phase.
For smaller projects the stages in each phase can often be adapted or streamlined to suit as necessary - you might only need my interior design service for just one or part of a phase.
Because of this, all projects (and quotes) are fully bespoke and tailored to your requirements. Head to my contact page to get a bespoke quote.
