Maria’s Seafood Market Remodel
At Bontrager Builders Group, attention to detail is one of our most important goals because unique building features make the best impressions. In each one of our projects, we spend countless hours ensuring that our clients’ projects fit their visions about how their properties should look. For example, we recently completed a remodeling project at Maria’s Seafood Market. The facility is small, but we wanted to make sure that every inch of its interior was functional, yet appealing to customers.
In the image below, notice a few things. First, look at the soffit; it features many beautiful black and white images that depict Maria’s history in Pensacola, Florida. The photos are subtle, and they tell a visual story that customers can find themselves engrossed in while sitting on the market’s benches or while waiting in line. The photos are not overwhelming, and they add an aspect of warmth to the building. They show customers just how long Maria’s has been in business, increasing the business’s legitimacy in the eyes of its customers.
In addition, the market’s flooring is simple, beautiful, and practical. The color is light, opening the space visually, and the color also ensures that any scratches that show up will not be visible as they would be on a dark floor. Maria’s color scheme is neutral to allow its colorful, fresh products to pop against the subtle background. Red is used sparingly throughout the establishment, but it alludes the market’s branding scheme which features the color prominently. These décor decisions are deliberate and careful, something that Bontrager Builders and our partners maintain a top-notch expertise in.
The details in this commercial space are subtle, but they make a huge impact on the flow of the space. The benches in the market maintain the facility’s theme of neutral colors accompanied by pops of color. The blue text on the bench is tasteful because it only outlines the white of the letters spelling out “Maria’s.” The effect of subtle color is an elegant space that attracts new customers and keeps the old ones coming back for more. Next to the bench, the shelves and shelves of vibrant products for sale stand out and draw the eye. The building interior’s neutral elements make the perfect backdrop for Maria’s Seafood Market’s striking items for sale.
When a customer enters the market, they see the visual that the image below depicts. The galley-style market creates a long line that makes the space seem larger than it is, and the light colors provide an open, inviting space for customers. They can see the pictures right below the ceiling, the elegant seating, and the mouth-watering products as soon as they walk through the door. Maria’s set up is optimal for customer engagement.
The colorful seafood is showcased in stainless steel ice buckets and look appealing when placed against the white background made up of ice. The ice buckets mirror the entire aesthetic of the restaurant: neutral colors that help display Maria’s products in the best way possible.
There are many working pieces that must come together to produce a commercial space of Maria’s Seafood Market’s caliber. However, Bontrager Builders Group excels at bringing architects, designers, and subcontractors together to create engaging, charismatic spaces that help businesses grow and excel.
