If you’ve ever thought about owning a business, you already know that there are an enormous amount of possibilities to consider. From managing cash flow to keeping payroll in line, being a business owner is a challenging—yet rewarding—vocation. But one of the most important questions isn’t about how many employees you’ll need or what kind of suppliers you’ll buy from—it’s about what your business will look like and how well your space will serve the needs of your customers.
A functional and unique space for your business is one of the easiest ways to ensure that customers will return for multiple visits. Studies show that consumers rank a clean, well-organized, and unique store or workspace as a large factor in whether or not they will return. From shoe shops to bookstores, accounting firms to dentist offices, business patrons take notice of what the space looks like and how well it functions: How easy was it to find merchandise? What kind of displays were in use? Customized touches like high-end furniture and built-in cabinetry and wall units are an easy, affordable way to address these important concerns.
With the enormous amount of store fixtures and custom furniture designs available, the possibilities for creating a one-of-a-kind business atmosphere are endless—and this is where custom-made designs and furniture come in. The term “custom” usually evokes a sense of superior craftsmanship, durability, reliability, and the use of the highest quality materials available. In some circles, it can also be associated with exclusivity and exorbitant prices, but the works made by Gil Avivi are designed with a wide spectrum of clients in mind — regardless of budget.
Read on to discover just some of the options that Gil Avivi Custom Furniture Toronto has to offer and how they can help your business excel.
Custom Cabinetry and Store Fixtures in Toronto
One of the questions asked most often about custom-made cabinetry is “What is the difference between custom cabinets and the ones available at my local home improvement warehouse?”
The main difference between custom cabinets and models sold at retail stores is the manufacturing process itself. Most cabinets and accessories sold at home improvement centers are constructed in a factory through the use of automated systems, and often use common design templates—they are just “off the shelf” models, and while you can choose a different color or finish, there is nothing sets them apart from the cabinets purchased by the customer before you. Perhaps a competing business down the block has purchased these same cabinets for their store, and the similarity is noted by consumers much more often than one might think.
In order to set your business apart, choose truly unique custom cabinets made from the finest quality solid hard and softwoods available, like ash, beech, cherry, hard maple, red oak, and many others. Custom Furniture Toronto does not use particle board or Medium Density Fiberboard, mostly because such wood composite materials are not as durable or long-lasting as true hardwood or softwood species.
Another defining characteristic of custom cabinetry is uniqueness of design. There are no “cookie cutter” templates used—all projects start with a blank page and a whisper of an idea that you, as the business owner, are a crucial part of. By getting to know each customer, we can create a design that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and will meet any budgetary or other constraints the client is limited by.
Wall Units and More Custom Furniture Pieces
If space is small or limited, custom-made wall units are an excellent solution. These are not typical bookcases or bookshelves, which some think of as “wall unit” furniture. The options available from Custom Furniture Toronto are unique and provide storage options for everything from office supplies to extra merchandise, without taking up valuable floor space. Wall units are custom designed and built to your specific business needs, using the same quality of construction and uniqueness of design. At Custom Furniture Toronto, custom wall units are never made with particleboard or laminate surfaces and begin with a consultation that will prioritize your needs and wants in terms of design. Not every furniture designer can offer the same level of quality and customizable options—but we understand that your business is your livelihood.
Wall units are an easy, elegant fixture that can be used efficiently in any business or store setting. Without spending a fortune, your business can have high-end furniture fixtures that draw customers in and keep them coming back.
Once a feature included only in small apartments or hotels, built-in furniture has earned a cachet of respectability thanks to its utilitarian form and widespread functionality in private homes, hotels, and other businesses, where there is a need for storage but little space to spare.
What is built in furniture? It can run the gamut from book shelves to cabinetry, from storage units to chests-of-drawers to anything in between. There is no limit to its design, style, or functionality and how it can be integrated into your business. Does your business need storage space for extra merchandise? Built-in shelving and cabinetry situated directly underneath display boards can hide it in plain sight, without taking up valuable space in a back room or office, and will look modern and unique.
Like custom cabinetry and wall units, the built-in furniture made by Custom Furniture Toronto uses only high-end hardwoods and softwoods and designs that are completely unique to your business needs. By choosing this as an option for your business or store, you can create your own special design and get all the functionality you need.
