Blog The minimalist modern makeover Remember the shops of your childhood? Sweet shops with jars stacked on shelves up to the ceiling. Clothes shops with aisles and aisles of clothes, in all sizes. Decorations on every wall, and a soft patterned carpet under your feet. You may have noticed that all that is changing. Maybe we’re all sick to the back teeth of chintz, and the time-consuming cleaning of knick-knacks and dado rails, but it seems like it’s not just homeowners who want to chuck out all the flourishes and live more simply. The same sees to go when it comes to retail – minimalism is where the future lies for many of our favourite brands. Take a look at the prime example set by Apple. Their Apple Stores have clean and simple lines. All their iPads and iPods are set out on smooth desks, with secure storage tucked away underneath. There’s no evidence of clutter, and transactions are carried out not at a central cash desk but with wireless handheld card machines. Even McDonalds is embracing the modern makeover. They’re slowly rolling out interior designs which are much more in touch with their customer. Scandi-chic is their favoured style, with everything looking like it might have come from the world’s favourite Swedish flat-pack store. Customer areas are kept uncluttered, simple and clear of distraction, with furniture like bar stools which wouldn’t look out of place in a trendy London café, and a streamlined touchscreen ordering process. Young fashion brand All Saints is putting an all-natural slant on their interiors, with a hint of industrial chic. Natural and untreated timber features heavily throughout, while clothes sit on solid metal hangers, and changing room doors are similarly metallic. No fussy decorations, no chemical treatments – just the raw material doing what it does best. These days, less is definitely more, conveying a sense of authenticity and transparency to customers in a way that evokes feelings of trust and helps create a stress-free environment. If it’s time to refit your retail space to bring it in line with the latest shift towards pared-back design, get in touch with AK Shopfitting & Carpentry, and let’s bring your own style of contemporary minimalism to your store.
