In a world where products are bought increasingly online, car dealerships still play a central role in the buying process, particularly in the luxury car world. Luxury car showrooms reinforce the sense of exclusivity and the allure and identity of the brands they are showcasing. Showrooms are designed to create a powerful impression on the customer and ultimately drive sales for the brand. It’s therefore no surprise that the best car showrooms are the result of careful planning and collaboration between the brand representatives, architects, interior designers, structural engineers and other consultants.
Ensuring a showroom is practical to operate is just as important as ensuring it looks impressive. Points to consider include:
You’d be forgiven for thinking that luxury car showrooms have more in common with art galleries than your everyday car garage. Luxury cars are often displayed as if they were works of art. Attention therefore needs to be given to ensure the vehicles are displayed to their best advantage, with lighting being particularly key. The right lighting in the best position helps bring out the beauty of the cars – their form, shape and character.
It’s also vital to ensure all showroom features are on brand, from the choice of colours to the materials used. The aim is to create an environment that is helping to sell a particular lifestyle in which the cars play a key role. The showroom helps to elicit an emotional connection between the client and the cars on display and ultimately drive sales.
Aside from offering a stunning sales environment, a showroom also needs to be adaptable and able to cope with periodic changes.
