Wren Kitchens has opened the doors to its 105th store in Durham this week.
A former B&M unit within Durham City Retail Park was completely transformed over a three-month period and created 21 new jobs for the community, including kitchen designers, managers and home surveyors.
At 15,000sq ft, it’s Wren Kitchens’ biggest kitchen showroom in the north east, complete with 55 displays and 16 open plan design suites.
It store features two virtual reality studios where customers can explore a full-sized model of their kitchen in 3D, allowing them to walk around, interact with appliances and open and close drawers and storage solutions.
There is also an interactive appliance centre which lets customers get hands on with different appliance features and technology such as self-cleaning ovens, voice-controlled lighting and hobs with built in extraction.
“We’re thrilled to be officially part of the Durham community, and we’ve been preparing for this special opening for several months,” Wren Kitchens Durham showroom manager Anthony Henderson said.
“It’s been a real team effort and we’ve pulled together to get this showroom looking amazing ready for customers to walk through the doors and enjoy a relaxed, inspirational kitchen design experience.”
