There is powerful evidence that incorporating elements of nature and living things in the built environment can have a direct impact on profits and your bottom line. From a marketing perspective, interior retail design is essential for attracting new guests and strengthening customer loyalty.
To thrive, retail spaces need to foster emotionally curative experiences to prompt further exploration of the brand. At its very core, biophilic design nurtures these objectives. And it does so by connecting people to the calming and restorative effects of the natural world.
Benefits of Biophilic Design in Retail Spaces
Consider the research:
- Visually appealing biophilic spaces changes a shopper’s perception of quality and value
- Shoppers are more likely to dwell in retail stores bathed in natural sunlight
- The therapeutic effect of nature produces positive emotions toward making a purchase
- Shoppers feel at ease and happier in spaces that connect them to the outdoors
- Stores lit by daylight reap significant sales boosts of 20 to 40 percent
In other polls where people were shown images of retail settings with and without greenery and natural light, respondents indicated they would pay 20 percent more for products sold in biophilic spaces.
Increase Perceived Product Value and Sales
Biophilic retail spaces enhance the consumer experience, making them more inclined to linger, browse in comfort, and have a higher perception of the product’s value. Moreover, customers are more likely to share their experiences with friends and return in the future, which ultimately translates into more sales.
By embracing biophilic elements that help engage sensory stimuli, retail owners have the opportunity to boost profits in a savvy and ecologically sound manner. There are many ways to integrate nature-inspired design concepts into an indoor retail environment, from soaring windows and potted trees to cascading waterfalls.
