Important Design Elements for Commercial Renovation Space

commercial renovationAchieving a luxurious finish that radiates high-end allure is a great goal for any commercial renovation. In particular, businesses that aim for a modern, stylish, and sophisticated appeal may want to make use of three distinct design elements to achieve the desired effect.

1. Wood as the major element – Nothing sets a deluxe tone better than gorgeous wood finishing. Just stroll through a high-end men’s clothing store and notice the evocative richness of top quality wall panels, display shelving and beautifully appointed fitting rooms to imagine what a skilled contractor could achieve with your commercial renovation.

Wood brings a flourish of elegance to a commercial setting without overtaking it visually. Its rich but natural tones showcase products without competing with their colours and textures, and provide more warmth and depth than most painted surfaces. If solid wood isn’t used in all areas, no one will be the wiser; these days, high quality wood veneers are remarkably well designed and stunning in their overall effect.

 2. A touch of glass – In addition to open shelves and display cabinetry featuring plenty of wood, including elements of glass, such as beautifully lit cases enclosing designer items, is also a great technique to achieve a high-end look and feel in an exclusive commercial space.

Not only does glass showcase and protect displayed items in a practical sense, it also provides an appealing esthetic quality when used in combination with wood and excellent reflective “play” with well-placed lighting.

As with glass, metallic surfaces provide excellent eye-catching qualities for architectural accents such as cabinetry hardware and mirror frames. Metal highlights add the final touches that still ground the predominantly wood finish in a more urban and contemporary landscape. Remember that metal doesn’t always mean the flash of chrome or stainless steel; there are many beautiful matte and brushed metallic surfaces and tones to choose from that will complement any setting.

Time to boost your business up a notch? Consult with an experienced, design-savvy building contractor who has impressive commercial renovation projects in his portfolio, and let the brainstorming begin and the ideas flow.
