How to Give Your Storefront & Retail Property Ideal Curb Appeal

Curb appeal. It’s what storefronts and retail businesses around the country stride for when constructing or renovating. Curb appeal is about drawing attraction to any passerby walking the sidewalks or driving by on the streets. It’s what brings customers in and makes them simply say, “that place looks cool”. 

So, how do you achieve this appeal? Well, there are plenty of options to giving your storefront or properties more appeal including landscaping and some new building facades. But those normally come with a steep price attached. That is why we here at Ideal Shield want to show you how to get Ideal Curb Appeal with our long-lasting, cost-effective, maintenance-free product line. 

Bollards 

Before you can worry about curb appeal, you’ll need to make sure your property is protected. That doesn’t mean a big, gaudy fence that makes it look like a fortress. But some well placed Safety Bollards that can protect against vehicle accidents to the storefront or drive-thru equipment but can also deter criminals from attempting smash & grabs.

Bollard Covers 

Whether you have bollards already in place or new bollards coming from Ideal Shield, there’s nothing that makes bollards look better than the reliable Bollard Covers. Ideal Shield was the first to offer it and continues to have the best catalog of Bollard Covers available, including any size, style, and color you could imagine. 

We offer the industry standard 1/8″ Bollard Covers at a cost-effective price for the lower impact needs but unlike the competitors, we also offer the 1/4″ thick Bollard Cover which was the Original Bumper Post Sleeve design.

Curb Guard

Signage is more important than some may think, especially at retail or fast-food settings. As curbside pickup has become a popular trend, making it easier for customer to pickup their food. So, make sure to make it even easier by having proper Sign Systems around the property to direct the vehicles to the designated parking areas. But that’s not the only place signage is needed.
