Touring a Melbourne renovation showroom is a great way to learn about different design options, materials and brands, as well as get expert insight into the latest trends and inclusion all in one place.
Plus you can get any questions you have answered by experts who know renovations inside out. So, if you’re about to start your renovation journey, we highly recommend you visit a showroom first! Read on to find out the many ways visiting a showroom can help you kickstart your renovation journey.
We have two gorgeous smarterBATHROOMS+ renovation showrooms in Melbourne, both of them filled with inspiring bathroom and kitchen displays as well as an extensive collection of tiles, tapware, flooring, sinks and basins to bring your dream renovation to life.
Our Port Melbourne showroom is home to some of our most loved bathroom and kitchen designs, as well as a beautiful walk-in robe. With a stunning selection of tiles, tapware, flooring, sinks, basins, and much more, our Port Melbourne showroom is an inner-city renovation destination in itself. You can find our expert Interior Designers available to talk all things renovating from Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Our Burwood East showroom is located in the heart of Burwood East. As our newest showroom, this space is home to our latest bathroom, kitchen, and robe displays. Just like in our Port Melbourne showroom, you can find a stunning range of bathroom and kitchen products and finishes you can see, touch, and experience. Our friendly Interior Designers are in our showroom Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm for all your design needs.
When looking for inspiration for your next renovation project, don’t be limited to just online platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram. It’s important to gain a spatial understanding of a space and how elements can be applied to suit your needs.
Visiting a showroom gives you the chance to see a wide variety of styles, layouts, materials, finishes, and colours in one place. It’s a great idea to bring along family members who will be using the new space, too. Having your loved ones involved in the showroom experience can help you understand what they like and don’t like, as it is sometimes difficult for them to put it into words.
The smarterBATHROOMS+ showrooms have been designed with the client experience front of mind, showcasing a variety of designs, fixtures and finishes so that you can discover new ideas and designs that you may never have otherwise considered.
The best thing about visiting a showroom is having a wealth of knowledge and experience from a designer who has done it all before to answer your renovation questions.
Discussing your project with an expert interior designer is a great way to start your project, allowing you to voice any concerns or talk through pain points you may be experiencing in the planning process, as well as gain sound information on budgeting and timeframes for your renovation project.
Things have changed since the 1950s, when the ‘work triangle’ was the prevailing solution to kitchen layouts. Now, kitchens are designed with multiple zones. A storage zone, consumable zone, preparation zone, cooking zone and a cleaning zone.
An authentic workflow of the cooking process is taken into account in this kitchen design process and it’s an easy concept to grasp if you can see it for yourself. Even more so if you have an interior designer walking you through the showroom to guide you through design concepts.
In the bathroom, separate wet and dry zones are crucial to ensure your bathroom is a safe and comfortable space. Important considerations such as the position of the towel rail will keep the bathroom safe from excess water dripped throughout the space. Our showroom displays are set up in this way, so you can get a feel for how these zones could look and work within different layouts.
Do you know the difference between benchtop options? Or the wide range of cabinetry finishes available? And what about the endless smart storage solutions and different drawer runners and hinges available? There’s a lot of information to cover when it comes to renovating your bathroom and/or kitchen, information that can be found in a showroom, with an abundance of product brochures and knowledgeable staff available in the one location to point you in the right direction.
The best way to get an appreciation for the best materials and finishes to suit your renovation is to physically touch and feel the products, we understand this isn’t always possible. But that doesn’t mean you can’t familiarise yourself with products and finishes through a virtual experience.
While websites can give you the information you need, nothing beats visiting a brick-and-mortar showroom.
We are very proud of the finishes in our custom-designed and built bathrooms and kitchens in our Port Melbourne and Burwood East showrooms. If you’re looking to compare the quality of our work with others in the market, drop by to see it for yourself or explore it virtually!
