LochAnna Kitchens has opened a new showroom, which it says will serve as a 'hub of inspiration' for its independent retailer partners and their clients. Located less than a mile from LochAnna’s HQ in Bolton and situated on the site of the company’s original HQ, the LochAnna Design Centre will serve as a showroom and training facility for new and existing partners. Furthermore, retail partners and customers will be able to bring their clients to the Design Centre if they don’t have a particular product on display at their own showroom. LochAnna has also invested in a virtual tour of the showroom so that anyone can ‘visit’ even if they cannot make it in person.
The Design Centre features 14 different displays, which showcase a total of 18 door styles and 26 colours. Downstairs five displays can be found, alongside a presentation and training room, design hub and a breakout area. Upstairs there are nine displays, alongside a fully working kitchen for cookery demonstrations and training.
Paul Jenkinson, founder and MD of LochAnna Kitchens said: “The LochAnna Design Centre is the start of a major new chapter in our growth and investment story. The project was born from the success of KBB 2020 – our first show – which brought in huge interest from a wider base of independent retailers with an appetite for more style, choice, and affordable quality in British-designed kitchens. The showroom will allow us to have a year-round showcase of the kitchens we so passionately design; a space for new and existing retail partners to touch and feel our products. While we haven’t set out for this to be a space open to the wider public, we absolutely welcome our retail partners to invite their clients to the showroom as part of the journey to choosing their dream kitchen.”
Sinead Trainor, kitchen category manager, added: “Our Design Centre is already providing a much-needed space for new and existing customers to learn more about LochAnna, complete our detailed product training course on site with the experts, and have the opportunity to experience the design details that really need to be seen in person to be appreciated.”
