A Local Setting
The Expressions Home Gallery opened recently in Southlake, Texas, with the goal of catering to the local population with an uncluttered and logically laid out space. Designed by Jayme Adams, manager of showroom development for the gallery, the space was designed with elements that are easy to change out and update according to new trends.
Upon entering the gallery, the first displays customers encounter are bath and plumbing products. “The first thing that goes into a house is plumbing, so walking in and seeing that first is important in the chronological order of how you build your house,” said Adams.
Other displays lay out a kitchen or bath in a certain style to showcase how the products can be used in context.
As shown by the research done by the design team, this transitional look – with stainless steel finishes and mosaic backsplashes – is most popular with local clientele.
“There is always a challenge when designing a showroom to make sure you are using elements that are simple to switch out and blending in the local market style,” said Adams. “The way we overcome this challenge is to look at Pinterest boards of local designers as well as consulting local vendors about trends they see in the market.”
