10 Surprisingly Genius Interior Accessories for Retailers

For retailers, creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere is key to helping bring in sales. Accessories are a simple yet effective way to add both style and functionality to your shop floor. In this blog post, we’ve compiled a list of 10 surprising yet genius accessories that will elevate your space and impress your customers


Hanging rails

Hanging rails may seem like an obvious addition to a shop floor, but they can have a significant impact on the atmosphere. Hanging rails have the ability to create sleek lines while also providing a tidy and organised space to display clothing or other merchandise, hanging rails can create a more inviting and professional environment. Additionally, the ability to easily change out products on the rails can keep the merchandise fresh and exciting for repeat customers. Hanging rails may be understated, but they can make a real difference in the overall feel and functionality of a shop floor.

We’ve opted for this stunning hanging rail from Pamo, which is a great example of how a built in hanging rail can create drama while also appearing elegant.



Accent lighting

Accent lighting is a powerful tool that can transform the atmosphere of a shop floor. By strategically placing lights to highlight certain areas or products, it’s possible to create a focal point that draws customers in. The benefits of using accent lighting in a store include:

  • Increased sales
  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • More memorable and enjoyable shopping experience for customers

High-quality mannequins

Using luxury mannequins to display clothing in your store can have a significant impact on the overall shopping experience for your customers. High quality mannequins can create a more upscale and sophisticated feel, making your store appear more luxurious and exclusive. Additionally, high quality mannequins can better showcase the fit, drape, and overall look of the clothing, which can increase the likelihood of customers making a purchase.


Luxury Doormats

Paying attention to the entryway of your store can have a significant impact on your business. Installing a luxury doormat not only limits the amount of dirt that enters your store, but it also adds another element of design to your space. A clean and welcoming entryway can make a positive first impression on customers, which can lead to increased foot traffic and sales. Moreover, a luxury doormat can contribute to a more upscale and professional image for your business, helping to attract and retain customers.

Ideal for stores and showrooms with a lot of footfall, the handcrafted doormats from RiZZ combine simplistic design with functionality to keep your retail space clean and tidy while looking stylish. Explore the range of luxury doormats and find the perfect finishing touch for your store.

The importance of good mirrors that fit with the interior design of a store cannot be overstated. When shopping for clothing, shoes or accessories, customers want to see how they look in the garments before considering a purchase. High-quality mirrors that are thoughtfully placed and designed to complement the aesthetic of the store can make a huge difference in the shopping experience. When customers feel good about how they look in what they are trying on, they are more likely to make a purchase. Additionally, attractive mirrors can add to the overall ambiance of the store and enhance the customer’s perception of the brand.

Let your customers see how your product looks on them. We love this timeless, design-forward wall mirror designed by Fabio Meliota. Available from go modern.



Comfortable seating

Luxury seating in a store can greatly enhance the overall ambiance and add to the customer’s experience of your store. By providing customers with a comfortable and stylish place to rest, it can positively influence their perception of the brand and encourage them to stay longer in the shop. This can lead to increased sales and customer loyalty. By investing in luxurious seating, you can create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere that reflects positively on the brand and makes customers feel valued.

Give your customers a comfortable seat when they come to browse your store. The curved shape of this Fuji sofa by Laura Gonzalez creates a warm and inviting space to come and rest your feet. Available from the invisible collection.


Impactful shelving

Having good shelving in a store is crucial for showcasing your products effectively. With the right shelving, you can display your items in an organised and visually appealing way, making them more attractive to potential customers. Not only does this improve sales, but it also adds to the overall design and aesthetic of the shop, creating a more welcoming and attractive environment. Well-designed shelving can help create a sense of order and professionalism, enhancing the store’s brand and reputation.

Showcase your products in style with a sophisticated shelving unit. We’ve opted for something in black and satin brass made by Gallotti & Radice. Available from go modern.


Room divider

Having a room divider in a store can greatly impact how your customers navigate your store. By creating different zones, customers are able to move around more easily and focus on specific products. It also allows for more efficient use of space and can help highlight the particular products or areas you want. Overall, a well-designed room divider can lead to a better shopping experience and increased customer satisfaction.

Inspired by Japanese culture and heritage, the Paravent Ambassade is a beautiful example of how a room divider can add to a space and create zones, giving your retail space a cosy vibe.




Surprising yet effective! Introducing plants and greenery into a retail space can have real benefits to both customers and employees. Plants not only add a natural aesthetic element,  they also help to purify the air by removing pollutants and increasing oxygen levels. This can create a more inviting and comfortable environment for customers. Additionally, the presence of plants can also reduce stress and anxiety levels among employees, which can improve overall productivity and job satisfaction.

We found a beautiful example of how retailers Areland, Greece have incorporated plants into their store. In the centre of this nut boutique is a stunning olive tree which captures the green and natural elements of the brand.




Last but certainly not least, scent can be a powerful tool in attracting customers to a store. By using pleasant fragrances, such as lavender or vanilla, you can create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere that entices customers to spend more time shopping. Additionally, certain scents can be associated with relaxation or energy, which can help customers feel more motivated to make purchases.

Scent is such a powerful tool and can transport customers back in time or to far away shores. So why not incorporate an electric diffuser into your retail space?
