Ideas Of Small Boutique Business
1Paint an accent wall
Painting one wall in bold colour is quite an affordable and effective way. It can not only spice up the space but also can make an illusion of quite a large look. It can create, as I said, the illusion of receding space. You can try putting colourfully printed fabric or wallpaper on the walls, it can help in achieving the same effect.

2Create window effects
Windows can make an illusion of making a small room look larger. You can try to cut window spaces into the walls to create a more airy feel. Or you can put white linen panels across the entire wall, creating an illusion of windows. Or try hanging drapes around tall and skinny mirrors which can give your shop an effect of windows and can create more light and space movement.
Try maximizing space by displaying items on various levels. It becomes more visually appealing to the customers. Having shelves at different levels is one of the easiest ways to achieve this effect. You can also try to mount draping and other items from the ceiling to floor to draw some eye up and create a sense of larger space.

4Avoid a cluttered look
Try to add more merchandise, but also try avoiding a more cluttered look using neutral colours, like ivory and gray for furniture and other large items. You can also try accenting space with small brightly coloured items like pillows and vase. But also be sure not to crowd or to avoid crowding merchandises too closely. It will give an elegant look and also can give some space.
5Move beyond shelving
Shelving can be one of the effective ways to make the most of your wall space, but you can be more creative and space saving in displaying products. Instead of the big floor case with jewellery and other small items you can try on buying old paintings in ornate frame and stretching the canvas in linen and creating giant corkboard to pin products. Or try headboard because it takes little space and also adds character to store.
6Use open bookcases as dividers
Sectioning areas in small shops are quite challenging. But if you try tall and open bookcases can be effective way that can divide the space in displaying products and creating airy feel. Open bookcases are also flexible, which can allow the change in both the layout and merchandising easily.

7Illuminate your space in different ways
Proper lighting is important in every shop. But it becomes critical in tight quarters. If a corner part of your store is not well lit, then that square foot is considered lost. You can try using a combination of track lights, sconces, lamps and picture lights. This type of mixture will not only ensure your entire space being well lit, but also can add variety and flair. Even picture lights are amazing and can give a wonderful glow.
