Gridwall displays are an easy way to revamp your store, and they come with several benefits. They are:

  • Affordable
  • Slimline and subtle
  • Lightweight but durable
  • Highly customisable

Continue reading to learn how you can turn a simple gridwall panel into an eye-catching, functional retail display with our top 20 unique gridwall display examples. 


Gridwall Display Ideas

  1. Gridwall shelving bays

Gridwall backing can be integrated with wall bays to provide different display options. This allows you to maximise your use of a single display unit by showing more merchandise.

In this gridwall display example by KSF Global for Tool Station, the gridwall panels can be easily modified with various accessories, from arms and hooks to shelves and hanging signage. All of these can also be quickly rearranged to create new displays.

2. Mid-floor gridwall units

20 Unique Gridwall Display Examples

Gridwall panels and accessories are also well-suited for free-standing mid-floor display units. Placed in the middle of traffic flow, these displays are a great way to get new products or special offers in front of customers and drive more sales. 

Using gridwall accessories, as shown in this example by KSF Global for Houdini, allows you to easily swap out products and create new displays for different promotions or campaigns.


3. Free-standing gridwall display

If you want to add a free-standing display unit to your shop floor, a gridwall display is a great option because of the amount of flexibility it offers. Simply purchase gridwall panels with L legs to turn them into free-standing displays that you can move around the store.

KSF Global designed this unit for Craghoppers. As you can see, the branded signage creates visual cohesion with the store, and these can be easily replaced for new campaigns. Meanwhile, the large gridwall surface can accommodate a range of different merchandise.

4. Gridwall with shelves

Adding shelves to your gridwall display allows you to maximise the space and showcase a variety of products in different ways. 

For example, this gridwall display that KSF built for Dickies uses both hooks and shelves to show complementary items that are usually bought together. Not only does this create an organised, uncluttered display, it also encourages upsells and cross-sells.

5. Wire mesh gridwall

Wire mesh gridwall panels can be attached to your wall to quickly create striking displays. This is a great option if you have a slimline budget or a smaller space. It’s one of the easiest display option to install, and while it’s lightweight, it can still support a range of products.

Wire mesh gridwall displays are also highly customisable with a variety of accessories, including shelves, hooks, arms, bins, baskets, and more. This gives you the flexibility to showcase a range of merchandise and boost cross-sells.

You can use gridwall panels to transform empty corners in your retail shop into an opportunity to display more merchandise. This maximises the use of your space and keeps customers interested as they walk through. 

Corner displays can be customised with many accessories, like the curved clothing rail in this example. They can also be used to showcase last-chance-to-buy items or products on special offer.


7. Mini countertop gridwall stands

Mini gridwall stands can be added to your countertop to upsell small or special offer items. 

By getting these in front of your customers at checkout, you’re more likely to tempt them into making additional purchases that don’t add a lot of money to their order.

Gridwall displays can also be purchased as free-standing towers. With four sides, this gridwall display example allows you to showcase more merchandise and encourages customers to walk around the display and interact with different items.

Gridwall towers can also be placed strategically to guide customers through your store, creating a more enjoyable shopping experience.


9. Gridwall pop-up

A gridwall is an ideal option for any pop-up shops or installations you might be holding. This is because they’re affordable, easy to set up and take down, and allow you to show all your merchandise. 

Consider adding branded images behind your gridwall display to drive visual interest and highlight your brand.

10. Centrepiece display

Gridwall panels can also be used to create visually stunning centrepiece displays in your retail store. Again, these are highly customisable for different campaigns or seasons.

The gridwall backing not only adds a modern, industrial element to your space, it also allows the display to be seen from anywhere in the store, including from behind, making a focal point that will attract customer attention.


11. Interactive touchscreen displays

Gridwall panels can even be used to support interactive touchscreens. The slimline design of gridwall backings allows these to be placed anywhere in your store without compromising on space or creating visual clutter. This easy placement also allows you to test where the screens are most effective.

Touchscreens allow the customer to interact with your brand or product by giving them a hands-on experience. You can use them to promote upcoming campaigns, provide a demo of a product, or even to allow customers to look-up additional product information.

Gridwall mobile towers feature lockable wheels so you can move the display easily through your retail store.

Allowing you to display your merchandise on multiple sides, these displays are perfect for showing complementary items and boosting cross-sells.


13. Gridwall clothing display

Four-sided gridwall floor stands make great clothing displays. These can be used to spruce up any areas of dead space in your retail store and keep traffic flowing.

Gridwall accessories, like curved arms and hooks, make it easy to display everything from shirts to trousers, and the lockable wheels also give you flexibility on where to place it.

Gridwall panels don’t have to be simple black or white pieces. Choose a colour and style that reflects your brand so that customers get a real sense of your shop’s personality.


15. Illuminated gridwall displays

If you want your gridwall display to really stand out, you can’t go wrong with some ambient spotlights. Not only does this make your display jump out from the wall, it also highlights all the details of your merchandise, giving customers a clearer view.

We’ve talked about how shelves and hooks can give you a lot of display options with gridwall panels, but if you want to get really creative, you can also use mannequins.

Adding mannequins – or any kind of bodyform – to your gridwall display allows you to show off how your merchandise is meant to look. This helps customers visualise themselves in your products and is also a fun way to make a simple gridwall display stand out. 


17. Decorative gridwall displays 

Gridwall displays can also be used to add decoration to your wall space with a few curated pieces that reflect your brand and draw attention to your merchandise. 

You can place these next to artwork, furniture, or clothing rails, for example, to guide the customer’s eye towards your products and give them a taste of how your items complement each other.

Their high level of functionality makes gridwall panels well suited for fitting rooms, where it’s easier for customers to hang all their various items.

Trying things on is an essential part of the shopping experience, so making this as easy and interesting as possible is sure to impress.


19. Gridwall ceiling displays

If you want to get creative and give customers a truly unique shopping experience, you may want to consider a gridwall ceiling display. This adds an industrial touch to your space and is an interesting way to hang light fixtures, making your store more memorable for customers.

You can go one step further and use these to hang some of your hero products, creating a fun, eye-catching display. These can be placed strategically to encourage customers to find the hanging items in the racks or shelves.
