When decorating a hardware store to place tool display racks, you need to consider the following aspects to arrange them reasonably: 

1. Tool category partitioning:

Group tools according to categories, such as pliers, wrenches, hammers, power tools, etc. The tools are arranged according to their categories to facilitate customers to quickly find the tools they need and enhance the shopping experience. 

2. Labels and logos: 

Set clear labels on each tool display rack to mark the tool name and specifications to facilitate customer identification. Colored labels, icons, or text labels can be used to make the layout clearer.

3. Highlight hot-selling or new products:

Place hot-selling or new products in a conspicuous position to attract customers’ attention. Special display windows or free-standing displays can be used to highlight these specially recommended tools. 

4. Arrangement of functions and usage scenarios:

Arrange the tools according to their functions or usage scenarios. For example, putting plumbing tools and water pipes and other related products together makes it easier for customers to buy the tools they need in one place. 

5. Safety and easy access:

Ensure that the structure of the tool display rack is stable, and the tools are firmly placed and not easy to slide. Set the appropriate height and tilt angle of the display rack so that customers can easily access tools while ensuring safety.
