Store Design

Design rendered in 3D.

Whether you are contemplating changes to the inside or outside of your hardware store or home center, Discovery Retail Group should be your first call. We approach design from a cost-effective, results-producing perspective. We want your store to be attractive, functional and profitable.


Experiential floor plans designed for maximum sales efficiency.

Because we concentrate on one industry, and bring our experience in that industry to bear on your project, we produce exceptional results. Your store’s design, inside and out, are ways you can differentiate from others. Create a pleasant shopping environment in your store and you’ll have more returning customers and attract new ones too. Your store’s design is part of its brand. Distinguish your store from the competition!


Here’s our process.

Our company meets with the management of your store to clearly understand your goals and vision. Whether you need a new exterior concept or a more profitable floor plan we’ll discuss your vision and work to clearly understand your operation. Then we’ll use our experience in the industry to make suggestions.

Measuring Up.

Measurements are obtained for the retail floor space and/or the exterior, including window and door locations. We’ll note troublesome support posts and other structural elements. We work to minimize their impact on your selling space.

Conceptual Designs.

Whether we’re working with you on the interior or the exterior of your store, we’ll start the process with different design concept sketches.

Let the changes begin.

Once you have chosen one of the designs, we begin refinements and start working on details.

A New Dimension.

The design team member assigned to your project communicates changes and asks relevant questions to keep you wholly involved in your store design project.

Color and texture.

Materials and colors are discussed and then integrated into the concept model.


When we design a new floor plan for your store, our team discusses the challenges and opportunities that the environment presents. We review departmental productivity and make suggestions. We do not sell merchandise. Our suggestions are based on your best interests, your store’s profitability.


Sample layouts are created and discussed. Attention is given to creating efficient floor spaces which produce better sales results and create differentiation for your store.

Final Selections.

Our design team reviews conceptual layouts with store management and a final design is selected. All required modifications are implemented in the 2D Design.

3D Renderings.

We offer a 3D option on interior floor plan designs. This process allows you to see your store before you complete it. The near photographic images can help you adjust colors and decor to produce the most attractive environment possible.

All in the details.

For exterior design concepts, final details are added and represented in photo-realistic 3D renderings.

Concept to Reality.

A freshened exterior or a new interior floor plan gives your business new life and energy. Your store’s design should separate you from your competitors. These kind of changes energize your entire staff.
