Renova – Work in progress 3

The last couple of weeks in the showroom have been taken up by joinery and tiling details. The tiling in both bathrooms is now complete as well as most of the walk in wardrobe, the reception desk and the product display areas. We are delighted with the tiling, our design did not make it too easy for the tiler, but he did a fantastic job! The kitchen and finishes station are due in the next couple of weeks thanks to Newcastle Kitchens who are the supplier for the job. We look forward to that!

Renova – Work in Progress 2

The Renova Showroom is coming along nicely. Overall the linear quality and formality of the design is starting to show through, as more materials are being fitted. The strong lines of the circulation path are more visible with the balterio flooring laid throughout.

A lot of the joinery items which we designed are in the process of being fitted. So far the reception joinery and meeting room joinery has been fitted. The design for this included sleek, high gloss, seamless doors with matching high gloss counter top reception. The meeting room joinery shares the same high gloss counter but contrasts strongly against it with walnut, push to open doors. As these are functional, professional spaces, we deliberately wanted to create joinery with clean lines which subtly blends into the spaces. Our joinery designs for the walk in wardrobe and living room storage are more suited to a home environment and include more detail.

Tiling is also underway in both the main bathroom and shower room. Both compliment the overall design, with the shower room showing a more playful and adventurous tile selection!

Renova showroom – Work in progress

Kingston Lafferty Design have been working on quite a few other projects over the last few months as well as the house at Mount Pleasant Square. One of these is a showroom for newly branded company Renova. The company sets to provide a one stop shop for the deep retrofitting of existing residential properties. The idea is that they will improve your energy rating by installing all of the necessary technologies and appliances including new windows, ventilation systems, underfloor heating, internal and external insulation, to name but a few. 

They have teamed up with us at Kingston Lafferty Design so that we can work along side them to provide the customer with an updated design for their home, be it a simple kitchen refit right through to an overall new spatial layout and updated interior design, joinery design and material and furniture specifications. We are currently working hard on the showroom design and detailing. 

The showroom, which is located in Kilmacanogue (beside Avoca!) is undergoing construction at the moment. We have designed the layout of the space and are currently designing all of the joinery and choosing all of the finished, furniture and other items. It is very satisfying to see a project unfold so quickly. You can see some of the construction photos below, and finished photos will follow in the next couple of months.
