Creative display ideas for retail stores include creating realistic scenes using mannequins and the store's products, arranging products according to color to create a unique image or recreating an iconic scene from a movie or television show. It is also possible to use uncommon items in the displays, as well as non traditional styles that contrast the store.
One method for creating a unique store display is to focus on mirroring real life by using mannequins and props to resemble actual scenes. For example, a clothing store could showcase a summer line by creating a beach scene that includes actual sand and water, along with a mannequin that appears to be swimming in the ocean.
Similarly, the display could take inspiration from other areas of pop culture and incorporate the store's products. This may include recreating a movie poster or album artwork, as well as making mannequins look like characters from a popular television show.
Some unique displays focus on the colors or shapes of the products to make larger images, such as using products of different colors to make a large rainbow display. This concept involves treating the store's merchandise as an art medium through which the display designer can create a new artistic piece.
Another option is to use uncommon items in the display to create contrast, such as placing camping gear and trees next to high-end ball gowns.
