Designing Your Commercial Space
Finding the inspiration to create the perfect commercial space whether you are designing a retail space, commercial office block or restaurant can be a challenge, but also an exciting one.

Current Commercial Spaces
One of the biggest ways to find inspiration if you are renovating, designing or taking over a commercial space is to visit as many as you can. You can great ideas about what works (and possibly more important what really doesn’t work) from walking through spaces to see how they have approached the design. Take notes, take photographs and remember to not only look at the specifics of the design but also ask yourself does the space work, can you find everything easily, is it interesting and also how does it make you feel when you are in there.
Inspirational Social Feeds
Pinterest and Instagram are two of the biggest social networks on the planet and as they are visuals based they have a never-ending stream of ideas. Simply look for commercial interiors on either of these platforms and a whole host of images will come to the fore for you to look through and be inspired by.
