Retail shop design consultant?

Hey everyone ! I run a startup in London and we are opening our first retail shop. We don't have a big budget and I am looking for a consultant to help me design the space. Does anyone know where I could find someone (affordable) to help me? I have not seen any on Houzz so far.

    It sound like you might need a shop fitting company- basically specialist joiners. Their website will give you ideas of past projects.

    Alternatively an interior designer could help.

    Or if the budget is really tight consider a mixture of auction finds, a local carpenter and paint to produce a cohesive scheme.

    What are you selling?

    Thanks Jonathan! I will have a google for that. I really would like someone to help me design the layout of the space. We have four different areas that we need in the shop (mechanic, electric bike sales, customer area and a bit of desk space at the back. We are an electric bike company (similar to Van Moof). The shop would be a mix of high quality retail, customer induction area, a place to fix the bikes and a place where I can work in the back.

    hi Lisa,

    congratulations on taking the plunge to open a retail premises. I have a significant amount of retail design, Project Management and cost control experience. I had luxury retail design business business for 10 years that I recently closed due to the downturn in business. I have over 450 international stores worth of experience .

    if you have any questions I can help and if you need further design help again I can do this, although I am not currently listed on this site as a Pro.

    best
