Tips to Getting More Customers with a Commercial Remodel


Commercial remodels refresh and restore businesses by attracting new customers and deepening existing customer loyalty. Some types of remodels attract more customers and generate more business than others.

As a business owner, understanding how a commercial remodel can broaden your customer base can help you decide whether or not a remodel is right for your business at this time.

Make More Room With a Commercial Remodel

One of the most obvious ways that a commercial remodel can bring in more customers is by making room for more people and making better use of your commercial space.

In store settings, space-inefficient layouts can slow business and limit the number of customers that your business can serve at one time. In office buildings, space-inefficient layouts can slow your overall business productivity by limiting the number of employees that your company can have at one time.

By making more space where your customers can sit, stand, or browse, or by making more space to accommodate staff members, you can increase your company’s business and serve more customers at one time.

Improve Parking

The parking lot isn’t the most exciting thing you could remodel, but improving your company’s parking can draw in customers who might otherwise go elsewhere. Many people turn away from businesses without adequate parking. By making your company’s parking lot more accessible, more space efficient and more user-friendly, you can draw in more customers.

Spruce Things Up

Dated interior designs are a turn off to customers. Old paint, worn seating, and lack of modern facilities can send subtle messages to your customers that your business is struggling. This can shake your customers’ faith in your ability to produce a quality product. For businesses that rely on atmosphere to impress clients (like restaurants), dated interior designs can be depressing.

Improving the aesthetics of your business will show customers that your business is successful and will draw more customers to your doors.

Go Green

People feel good when they can support businesses that try to be environmentally friendly. By installing low-flow fixtures in the bathrooms, an ENERGY STAR HVAC system in your building, energy efficient light bulbs in all the lights, and energy efficient windows in the walls, your business can reduce its utility bills and draw in customers who feel a sense of social responsibility. After making these changes, tell your customers so they'll know that your business is environmentally responsible.
