Cabinet Showroom Tips

In a cabinet showroom with kitchen vignettes, the use of kitchen appliances such as wall ovens, ranges, cook tops and dishwashers creates a much more realistic and inviting look than a showroom without any appliances, but the cost of real appliances can be prohibitive.  To get the look we wanted without breaking the bank, we took photos of high-end kitchen appliances and had color prints made, at actual size, and had our sign company mount the prints onto black acrylic or PVC backers.  The end result was beautiful, realistic looking kitchen vignettes at a fraction of the cost due to our inexpensive kitchen props.  View photos of our finished showroom below.
