Saving Space For Those With Shops Too Small For Comfort
Oct 24th, 2008

Not many business owners can afford a huge retail outlet. This is particularly true if you’re a small business owner with a limited budget. Without adequate space, there’s bound to be clutter – and it’s not good with the customers! This is where a slatwall display system will come in handy. If you’re not familiar with what this form of display arrangement is, let us spend some time to explain it to you.

First of all, let’s deal with the fundamental issue at hand….which is space. The only way to keep your display area clutter-free and attractive is to use a shop wall display that can keep all the products that you have in the shop off the floor by using the free space on the wall. With a little bit of arrangement, you can move the less essential items like moveable shelves, furniture and art pieces to a particular corner or other walls before you install a slatwall display system into your shop.

A slatwall display system is a kind of display technique that attaches a very sleek shelving system to your walls. Most of these shop wall display products are affordable and worthwhile in the long run. Imagine, once you’ve got it installed, you can literally free up floor space.

The tricky thing about this retail outlet display technique is to choose the right product. For one, the pricing. You’ve just got to scout around a little to find a manufacturer who is able to give you a good pricing. In this case, the product is a bulky item, I would strongly encourage you to consider the cost of shipping. Unless you’re buying these shop wall display systems in bulk, it would make more sense for you to ask around to see if there are other retail shop owners who are willing to consider using a slatwall display system in their shops – THEN, you purchase in bulk.

The other thing to consider is the color and quality of the product. For something like this, it’s VERY, VERY important to get one from a source with good reputation and quality products. Since most of these slatwall display systems are made of wood (wood is the best, by the way), ask the sales representatives the lifespan of the wall display and what form of regular maintenance is required. If you compromise the quality of the wall display for pricing, you might find yourself having to remove the wall display within a couple of years – wasting time and money along the way!

Last but not least, the shop wall display product should give you an immense sense of satisfaction in creating your own display area! Trust me, it goes a long way! For example, some of these systems come with replaceable, removable and adjustable hooks and other trinkets that gives you complete freedom in adjusting the displayed items according to size and importance.

I know pricing is an important factor to take into account, considering the current state of our economy, but it would be an unwise move on your part to compromise the quality and flexibility of the wall display system, so, take your time and choose wisely.
