Shoppers enter a showroom because they want an experience. While online resources provide product details such as colors, sizes, and specifications, the listings can’t give shoppers the feeling of experiencing a product in person.
If you’re selling products in a brick-and-mortar location, you need a space that gives customers physical access to your products, including all kind of furniture you sell, which could be even antique furniture which is really popular now a days. You need to shine the best light on your products (sometimes literally). And, you need to create a shopping experience that can turn casual shoppers into paying customers.
As you design your showroom, think about the customer experience from the moment they arrive. When customers enter the showroom, take them on a journey. Categorize your products into departments, and place sections so that one naturally leads to another. Start your customer’s journey with your most popular products, then guide customers through other departments that relate to the items that came before it, and end the journey at the checkout counter placed near the back of the showroom.
Customers are in your store because they want to experience your products in person. Make sure they can get what they came for. Set out samples that allow visitors to touch and feel products that are typically boxed. Create displays that welcome visitors to interact with products. And, share product demo videos that walk customers through the uses, applications, and benefits of your items.
