A new DIY warehouse opened up locally a few weeks ago and I decided to take a look and see what was on offer and how their products and displays would measure up to Beau-Port’s products and showroom. It was difficult to get a real sense of how the kitchens I saw would look in a real setting, most were just very small kitchen displays or just portions of kitchen displays, all looking rather clinical in the harsh light of the warehouse setting.
The Beau-Port design team of Mark and Jacob Johnson have the benefit of a large showroom that has full-scale kitchen displays so that client’s can come along and get a real feel of how a particular kitchen - whether it is a contemporary kitchen, traditional kitchen or Shaker style kitchen - would work in their home.
Beau-Port has just launched two new contemporary kitchen displays and now have three full-scale contemporary kitchen displays and three full-scale traditional displays including Shaker style.
“We encourage clients to come along and ‘test drive’ the kitchens as they are all fully working kitchens - for example the Total Control AGA we have in our AGA kitchen display is fully functioning. We also welcome clients who want to come back a few times to really experience the various kitchens we have on display - to linger and relax in the showroom. We understand that creating a new kitchen is an investment and it can take time to decide just what style you feel will work in a particular style of property”, commented head designer Mark Johnson.
The Beau-Port designers then visit client’s homes and help to guide them towards making the best choices for the space and their budget. Once clients have decided on a particular style it is then all in the detail, which takes time and consideration and guidance from the design team who are renowned for their creativity, patience and attention to detail.
Every client I have interviewed on behalf of Beau-Port has been very complimentary about the 2000 sq ft showrooms located at Bentworth, just off the main Alton to Basingstoke Road. Many clients have said that seeing the full-scale working kitchen displays really helped them to choose the right kitchen and to decide to use Beau-Port.
The Beau-Port showroom is constantly being updated and refreshed to ensure that new and returning customers can see the very latest kitchen and interiors designs. As well as bespoke traditional and Shaker style kitchen displays, visitors to the showroom can also see a home study display, media centre display and new free-standing pantries.
“Because we are located off High Street we have been able to create a huge showroom at our HQ at Bentworth, near Alton. We welcome those who are looking for a full-scale kitchen experience and our design team’s expertise. So come and linger a while with us, enjoy the easy parking and our fabulous views,” concluded Mark Johnson.
