First Blog – Project showroom

So after trading for 2 years, out of a very small office (effectively a shed),  we decided that it was the right time to build a proper showroom, where we can showcase all our work and a place where customers can come and relax whilst making big decisions.

We received the keys to the premises in May 2016, when the showroom looked like this…25446175_10208468208981422_9119105599427736768_n25395923_10208468209341431_9046927461020211572_n25348333_10208468208781417_5243158362073855512_n25398742_10208468209221428_6521839544197790418_n

As you can see, it just looked grotty, old and very tired. So that’s when all the hard work began, we had to transform this place! There is only two of us here at Dawlish Kitchens so it was a massive project to take on (along with looking after a toddler amongst it all) so we decided to share the space with another local company called Plectrumb Ltd who have the bathroom and boiler displays in the showroom.  Having never done a project like this, it was a major learning curve as we had to think about absolutely everything.

Over the course of 6 months, we spent many a late night and weekends in here but it was most certainly worth it.  I can never express to you how over the moon we were with the finished product!

To finish and dress our displays, we teamed up with a local interior shop, Nkuku Home & Lifestyle, who have the most gorgeous furniture and home accessories. All of the products are available to purchase from our show room.

The weekend before Christmas we had a grand opening, where customers, family & friends joined us in celebrating with mulled wine, prosecco, mince pies, taking in all of the stunning displays.

We hope you enjoyed our first blog & look forward to seeing some of you in 2018!
