What makes a shopfront good?

Read on to find out.


No one wants to go into a store that looks cluttered and messy. Because of this, you should avoid putting too much signage and merchandise in your shopfront. Keep it relatively clear and make sure you clean it regularly.


Making sure you have the right amount of lighting in your shopfront is also important in attracting potential customers. You want to have just enough lighting to illuminate your store and make it stand out, but not so much that it will appear overly-bright.


Aside from drawing in customers, the main role of your shopfront is to keep your store secure. In order to achieve this, ensure the material your storefront is made from is strong and sturdy. If you want to install a glass shopfront, choose safety glass such as toughened or laminated glass. These glass types are significantly more resistant to force and less easy to break than standard annealed glass.

Easy to Maintain

Last but not least, for your sake, you want to ensure your shopfront is easy to clean and maintain. Select materials that stay cleaner for longer and don’t require excessive maintenance (such as glass and aluminium) over materials that get dirty quickly and require frequent touch-ups (such as timber).
