White & Sons came to MPL Interiors specifically to counteract the growing threat from online and hybrid estate agents, commissioning a cosmetic office refurbishment at all four of its Surrey branches.
With many High Street agents pressing home their ‘local experts on your High Street’ message, enhancing the physical brand and company visibility should be a top priority. Our work for White & Sons focused very much on the ‘top layer’ of each branch, allowing a tight budget to have an immediate impact across multiple offices.
There was no structural reconfiguration within the four offices, just some minor electric and lighting revisions. This allowed the majority of the budget to be spent on interior finishes, office furniture and accessories – high-impact fittings that draw attention and lodge the brand in the sub conscious.
MPL Interiors created an interior design plan for White & Sons that made allowances for existing display units and office wall art that the client requested to retain.
Other items were replaced with similar but more functional models – such as the office desks, which were replaced with newer versions with integrated cable management systems.
Visually striking additions across the four White & Son branches included new floor coverings, with a distinctive patterned carpet detail and wood panel-effect wallpaper. Also, new occasional chairs in colours to match the corporate brand identity and in the case of the Reigate office, an integrated refreshment station that made use of an existing fridge.
