Open Doors - a letting agent and property management company based in Buckingham - has successfully moved into a former tattoo parlour with the refurbishment expertise of MPL Interiors.
MPL's work for Open Doors illustrates that business owners don't have to spend a fortune on bespoke elements or designer items to create a unique feel. Almost all of the facets at Open Doors are off the peg - the skill is actually pulling together the items and colours creatively. Additionally the professional installation gives the air of a much more expensive fit out.
Gilded wallpapers, mirror-finish accessories and touches of gold have been used to add opulence, while a customised curved desk with bespoke modesty panel creates a focal-point for visiting clients. There's new flooring, which has been divided into two: wood-effect vinyl and carpet meet in a curve that mimics the desk and subtly defines the waiting area and the staff quarters. For a lettings and management company, there is scarce mention of property, with a discreet collection of wall-mounted display units and a subtle cable-hung LED light pocket window display.
The refreshed exterior features a bespoke fascia with stud-mounted acrylic letters and a complete whitewash of the detailed façade.
