Life size - The Tile Warehouse

The Tile WarehouseComfortable two seater settees and stunning new bathroom and kitchen displays now greet customers visiting The Tile Warehouse's new modern brighter and more spacious showroom in Somerset Street, Frankton, just two doors down from the original premises that the business had outgrown.

Owners Helen and Kevin "wanted to provide a brighter bigger concept with full-sized displays to make choosing tiles much more exciting for our customers".

In addition to the exterior and interior repaint using Resene paints, Resene Metallics were used as features on the full-sized displays to entice customers into each area for a closer look at the finish. From a bathroom featuring a Resene Celery (citrus green) feature wall complemented by Resene Quartz (metallic purple) to a second display featuring Resene Blast Grey (metallic silver), a third display featuring Resene Grain Brown from the Karen Walker range (light tan) complemented by Resene Hauraki (metallic green) and a fourth display featuring Resene Copper Fire (metallic copper) in both kitchen and bathroom areas, The Tile Warehouse customers are literally spoilt for choice.

With the customer friendly new store layout, design choices can be viewed life size then pondered and debated in comfort.
