A happy customer is one who will come back again and again, and, hopefully tell all their friends. Creating spaces customers actually love is a science indeed. First impressions are a must and you only have one chance to make a good one. When someone visits a store they are highly likely to size things up pretty quickly and a lot of times make their decisions based on the feelings they get from their first impressions. 

There are a lot of factors that go into what the customers first impression will be from how organized and clean the store is to what type of design and even the materials used in the design. While there are many different ways to organize and design a space, utilizing unique features is sure to attract attention and impress visitors.

Adding features that are warm and organic is a way to break up the space, making the customer experience calming and enjoyable. Reclaimed woods add a lot of depth to the space as well as providing a visual story of their past uses. There are lots of times when a small feature placed in the right location will be extremely dramatic and add just the right look. In other cases, when used well a floor, full walls or a ceiling treatment can set the tone for the entire space providing an anchor within the overall design that will set the tone for everything else.
