Show Flat in Colchester

We have just completed another show flat in Colchester, working closely with the developer our designers have done a magnificent job completing a kitchen, en suite and main bathroom as well as all the furniture, soft furnishings and decorative items.  We have recently completed a few show flats for local property developers.  These are local developers that have used both us and our parent company as part of their building process for plumbing and electrical supplies, kitchens and bathrooms and have then seen the development of our Maldon retail store and the interior solutions we have on offer and so have chosen to use us to complete their show flats/homes.

This particular project had a brief of luxury with a neutral palette throughout and so we’ll start in the open plan living area.

We have a 3 seater corner sofa, matching chair, coffee table, side table and sideboard.  These pieces of furniture are dressed with cushions and a throw from the ranges available in store as well as vases, photo frames and room fragrances to complete the look.  The point of dressing a flat like this is to show the potential buyers what it could like to actually live in – of course not everyone has the same tastes and that’s why in show homes we tend to go for more of a neutral palette.  In this development we are definitely showing the flow of the rooms but having said that the developer in this case has chosen to use a very high level of finish in all the rooms, this is indeed an exclusive luxury development.

The dining area, as well as the table and chairs also features a console table, mirror, artwork and more decorative pieces.

As before the kitchen including the island is dressed with products available in store today, so let’s move on to the first of the bedrooms.  We have supplied the bed, including the mattress, bedside drawers and wardrobes.  The room is completed with bed linen, throws, lamps, a rug and curtains and leads into a generous en suite.  The en suite features products from Duravit, Deuco and Hansgrohe as well as the Tec Lifestyle Desert tile.

Finally in a project like this there is no room to forget details and that is what our designers have done this spectacularly with the wallpaper in the hallway.  It could have been forgotten and just painted white but the geometric design chosen to complete the hallway area gives potential buyers their first clue to the quality of finish and product they are about to see.
