Gone are the days when mobile phones were just a luxury. In today's fast-paced world, they are an absolute must, be they owned by students who are running from class to class, or uber-busy professionals rushing through the cutthroat world of modern business. It's also an essential style accessory for the fashionistas, who are always competing to stay 'fresh' by frequently changing to newer models. There can thus be no doubt about the popularity of mobile phone showrooms. This is where the décor comes into play.

Retail design might be called "the design of the times". Even the most traditional retail establishment must exemplify a contemporary zeitgeist, a design spirit that makes merchandise look new and desirable, appeals to the consumer's aesthetic need and ultimately persuades them to buy.

cell-phone showroom

This week, we feature an exclusive mobile showroom located in Eastern Tower, Kakrail. Measuring 25' x 15', it is not very small, but space nevertheless, remains an important consideration. We arranged two commercial board and gorjon wood counter tables and a display counter behind it for mobile sale service. A bold colour tone was used for the counter table. We used docu paint for long maintenance. A S.S. pipe and glass partition was installed for cash security. Blue and red colour makes the showroom very eye catching.

Retail shop designing is exciting work. A Sonargaon Coffee tone was used in the wall and an interesting patch was created with black. We also used black false ceiling like a striped line with a white Gypsum section. The bold black tone turns the outlet's ambience dramatic. Spots lights and energy savers makes the space brighter.

The floor is a key point for heavy traffic flow. We used homogenous tiles for the floor. We also arranged a small office room for operational purposes. A different level was created for office rooms. This is another attraction. Accounts are important, so a large closed cabinet with ornate shutters was made for them. A beautiful black executive table and side table were provided for the key person.

In front of counter table we provided spacious area for buyers. When new package items are launched, people rush to the showroom, so a lot of space is needed. We provided individual sofa sets for buyers, so clients can browse in comfort at leisure.

For the interior a good design should also reflect efficient space planning, good ergonomics and optimal functionality.

Proper product display arrangement turns a tiny shop into a spacious place, which is necessary for attracting clients. The shop's owner achieves this through the personal attention to client service.

Hence good environment influenced by properly planned surroundings makes the shop healthy and purposeful for client service.
