With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, our thoughts turn to romance. Flowers, cards, chocolate! Those images occupy our thoughts and most of the stores we enter. The appeal of this manufactured holiday is that buying flowers, chocolate, and cards will create more romance in our lives. Romance, however, can go beyond flowers, cards, and chocolate. The space and environment we spend our time in and where we conduct our business can also become a source of romance. I would like to use this post to explore several ideas on how you can make your space fresher, more appealing, maybe even more romantic!
A fresh look can be the allure of a new accessory, the process of trying different things, or the tempting appeal of new spaces.
Each of these ideas can be used to make your optical space more appealing. Adding a new accessory can bring a new focus to a particular display. The SpecRest, a new countertop display by Ennco (ennco.com), comes in several sizes, and can be used either singly or in a group for adding a fresh look to a shelf, counter, or window. Other ideas are adding a special item to group a set of frames around, rearranging your existing frames to highlight particular ones, or removing some of the frames temporarily to bring more focus to the ones that remain.
Graphics are another way to add interest to the space. How long have those posters been on the wall? Have you talked with your frame reps about new graphics? Getting new graphics and installing them in a light box on the wall, or hanging in the window can spark a new interest in your space. The people at Ennco can help you create each of these options and offer other ideas to add, change, or adjust your graphics and signage.
Windows are your eyes to the world. Whether it is rearranging your window, adding a new box or graphic, or completely redesigning the window display; the impression created can bring romance back to your space. Don’t have a lot of window space. Let the designers at Ennco help you design a series of lit Face Frame Boxes to create a window look on one or more of your walls.
Trying something new or different often seems like a huge endeavor. Like most of us, it is easy to get into an established routine that we become comfortable with and the idea of change seems very daunting. The ideas presented here can be done in a series of small steps that can result in increased interest, appeal, and even romance for your space.
I encourage you to do something this month to change your space. Change your counter, window, or wall. Use one of the ideas from this post or contact the Ennco team to help you romanticize your optical space.
