Christmas time is upon us once more. With it comes the push by stores on the high street to gain the attention of Christmas shoppers. A great Christmas window display is a fantastic tool in your arsenal here. You just need to make sure that you are taking the right steps to unlock the greatest benefits.

Create A Story

When you’re creating your window display, it can be tempting to simply select any item or object that is even slightly festive and add it to the display. You can do this, and you could end up with a rather stunning eclectic design. However, a better choice would be to aim to tell a story with your display. By creating a story, you give your audience something that they can connect with and that will have a long-lasting appeal. You can start with a theme and then work to build from there. You can even think about including different characters and build a storytelling journey.

Use Lighting

If you want to ensure that your window display stands out on the street, it’s important to think about lighting. Lighting is a great way to draw attention to your beautiful display. You can ensure that key points look incredible and draw attention to elements that you definitely want your audience to notice. Don’t forget, the right lighting will also help you gain attention for your window at a time of year when night falls while most shops are still open, and people are out shopping. It also helps your shop become part of a larger festive environment.

Be Unique

‘High concept’ may not be a term that you would readily associate with a festive window display. However, it should be because you’re not going to be the only business on the street looking to gain attention from shoppers. That means that you need to take the right steps to ensure that your business display does stand out from the rest. Beautiful, incredible displays with bespoke models that shoppers won’t see anywhere else are a key step to do this. You can also find options like this on the market that will match your business budget. You don’t need the spending power of Harrods to accomplish wonders here.

Match Your Brand

Do make sure that the festive Christmas window display that you are creating still matches your brand. It’s important that customers can look at your shop window and clearly see the ideas and concepts that are connected to your company. For instance, if your business is based on budget-friendly items, you shouldn’t use expensive products to create your shop window display. Instead, the overall design should match the type of product that can be found in your store. This is also going to help you advertise your products with your window display while gaining interest from the festive shoppers.

We hope this helps you understand some of the best ways to create an amazing Christmas window display even on a limited budget. Any business that can join in the fun here and gain great benefits with increased foot traffic and additional Christmas sales.
