Like many homeowners, walking into a kitchen showroom might be one of the first steps taken towards your new dream kitchen. Kitchen showrooms provide a physical showcase of designs, layouts, finishes and appliances, sparking a plethora of ideas and inspiration. This is also a great opportunity to meet the team that you might be trusting to design and deliver your new kitchen. A kitchen showroom should offer a unique experience tailored around you. Here, we take a look inside some of the kitchen showrooms that were shortlisted for this year’s Studio Partner Awards to see just how our Studio Partners create amazing experiences for prospective customers.
Parlour Farm – Cirencester
In May, we were thrilled to present Cirencester-based Studio Partner, Parlour Farm, with the Best Showroom Award. This prestigious award celebrates functional product displays, clever use of space and exemplary customer service; all elements that Parlour Farm truly embody in the kitchen showroom experience.
On stepping into Parlour Farm’s kitchen showroom, you’ll either be greeted by the fresh aroma of espresso, the wagging tail of Bertie the dog, or ex-head-chef, now Managing Director Dino Mussell, cooking up a storm for the team. The sheer space dedicated to displaying Parlour Farm’s meticulous craftmanship around the showroom is both striking and inspiring. The Parlour Farm team want their customers to go on a journey, exploring the kitchen showroom without intrusion and visualising their living space.
