At FC Dadson, we understand the importance of selecting the right materials to reflect a brand's identity. Our design process involves collaborating with clients to choose materials that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical and sustainable.

  • Stone and Ceramic: Natural stone or ceramic tiles offer durability and a premium feel. They work well in high-traffic areas, blending functionality with aesthetics.
  • Concrete: For an industrial-chic look, polished concrete is a popular choice. It's durable and lends a modern, minimalistic feel to the space.
  • Wallpapers and Wall Finishes: Wallpapers and unique wall finishes can instantly change the ambiance of a retail space. They offer endless creative possibilities, from bold patterns to subtle textures.
  • Smart Materials: Incorporating materials with built-in technology, like interactive surfaces or LED panels, can elevate the customer experience, making the retail space more engaging.
  • Lighting Solutions: The right lighting can dramatically enhance the appearance of materials. Strategic use of lighting fixtures can highlight key areas and products, creating a dynamic retail environment.


We at FC Dadson believe in a tailored approach to material selection. Our team expertly combines these materials with custom millwork solutions, ensuring every aspect of your retail space is coherent and aligned with your brand's identity.
