Shopfronts in North London: In a modern building, the shopfront is built using the latest and advanced technology and method. The first thing anyone will notice when they visit your store or building is the front of the shop. But you have to follow certain principles while installing the shopfront.

  • Fascia

Store or business owner who is installing shopfront in London must consider this important element. The fascia is the most prominent and uppermost element as provide space for the hoarding on which the name of the shop is displayed. In traditional shop front, it was made using timber which was hand-painted. Always keep in mind that, there should be space between the first floor and the top of the fascia. Additionally, the depth of fascia is very crucial part and it should not be too deep (generally less than c.400mm).

  • Cornice

Whether you want to display simple or more decorative moulding, cornice frame is very beneficial and it also protects the shopfront. Traditionally, it was used in house to conceal the retractable blinds or awing.

  • Pilaster

Pilasters are generally used to divide or distinguish the shop from its adjacent neighbors. It also helps in providing longer shopfronts. The pilasters contain three components which are plinth, trunk and a capital. They are of a different material which is plaster, granite or terracotta and they also define the overall width of the shop. The typical width of pilaster is between 150–250mm.

  • Entrance door

The doorway is also used to provide shelter to those who are entering or leaving your shop or store. No doubt, it is an integral part of the entire composition and it is important that it should match and fit perfectly into the door frame. Usually, the door is made either using brass or iron.

  • Glazing

The glass of the shopfront should be properly glazed as it will make it more strong and it can withstand different conditions. It is important that horizontal and vertical bar should be glazed which are in proportion to the upper floor.
