Showroom/Gallery makeover

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — Waihi Road, Hawera

The showroom has now been transformed with giftware, cookware and artworks.

One Off Kitchens & Furniture (formerly, Rogers Fine Furniture) has been operating for 21 years. The whole factory had its first makeover in 2003 with the main weatherboards painted in Resene Surrender and the trims in Resene Pohutukawa.

The showroom was used for client's furniture once completed from the factory. It has now been transformed into the Showroom/Gallery with giftware, cookware and artworks. The whole interior is painted in Resene Metallic Blast Grey and all the on-site hand painted artwork is created using Resene testpots.

With the transformation of the interior we needed to make the Showroom/Gallery stand out as we are situated on a main road surrounded by blending motels. We wanted to create an inviting but funky look with impact making it the emphasis of the building having left the factory side the existing corporate colours.

Resene Ipanema was the perfect stand out colour for us that met and exceeded all our visions and requirements. It creates the diversity of colour with the added texture of the raw totara wooden doors and the deck. The trim and base in Resene Abbey is a clean sharp contrast that balances and blends well with the factory colours, it also frames the white aluminium display window perfectly and makes the new white PVC Kitchens sign stand out. The building is small but the colours have made it huge with character and energy!

We now have passerbys stopping to view the Showroom/Gallery and have had excellent positive feedback on the colour scheme.
