FOCUS ON FEATURES – Episode 7

FOCUS ON FEATURES - Episode 7 Ceiling Feature - Our show home features a clear varnished ply ceiling with black negative detail and we LOVE it! This treatment is very on trend and being done in a lot of commercial fitouts. It is a little trickier to install but really upgrades a standard ply ceiling. Our ply supplier loved it so much he took photos and was telling all his clients about it! Who says going Tiny means you have… Read More

FOCUS ON FEATURES – Episode 6

FOCUS ON FEATURES - Episode 6 Sofa bed/storage – The requirement for our show home's lounge space was: 1) Comfort 2) Ascetics 3) Storage 4) Additional sleeping 5) Specific size 6) Quality 7) Durability So many boxes to tick in such a small space...

For our Show Home we selected the commercial grade Karndean Loose Lay vinyl planks to create a stunning natural… Read More
