The Centurion [news.centurionjewelry.com]
The great news is there are more independent jewelry stores enlarging their space than closing them, meaning it is as important as ever to make a good impression with your exterior and interior designs. Often when I do design consultation with remodeling or enlarging jewelry stores there is one essential question I receive: What percentage should be the showroom versus the back office? My answer is the 80/20 rule. Jewelry owners want to maximize the showroom space because that is revenue generating. So, 80% is generally specified for the showroom, while 20% is for the back office.
