Keeping your commercial retail space up to date is critical to your success in any industry. By implementing some of the latest and greatest technologies, features, and materials, you can help keep your business one step ahead of the competition. 

If you’re looking to step your game up when it comes to renovating your commercial retail space, here are some of the best new materials available to help you do it.

1. Install New Countertops in Your Retail Displays

If you want to create the best-looking displays possible, you need fresh new countertops. Go for trending materials like solid surface if you want the cleanest look you can find. White solid surface countertops are not only incredibly sleek, they’re easy to clean and super durable as well.

2. Replace your Store’s Display Glass

Another tip for improving your display cases is to replace your glass windows. Old glass tends to have a slightly cloudy look to it no matter how well you clean it. It won’t cost you much to swap out that old glass for some fresh new, crystal-clear glass that customers will barely even be able to tell is there. 

3. Install New Retail Flooring

Flooring is another key part of a successful commercial retail space. The flooring says a lot about the place and it can make or break the entire atmosphere of your building. You should choose a style and color of flooring that meshes well with the furniture, items, and wallpaper you plan to use in your space. 

Some great options here are polished concrete, terrazzo, or premium hardwood. Your floor should have a sheen to it and be free from blemishes or noticeable damage.

4. Redo the Storefront’s Exterior

While the indoor experience is more important than what your customers see on the exterior before entering, the exterior is still important for drawing people in and representing your business to the world. 

Improve your commercial retail space by touching up the exterior with a new awning or even some architectural grilles. The right architectural grilles for a retail space can add depth, sophistication, and a unique look that catches the eye.

5. Spice Up your Retail Space’s Ceiling

Many businesses have no idea what’s available in terms of ceiling tile upgrades right now. For example, you can find beautifully designed, acoustically optimized, decorative ceiling tiles that add style and functionality to your space. These can be an incredible complement to other stylistic features in the space and will do a lot to make customers remember your business over others.
