7 Showroom Applications with Architectural Wrap

We’re back again, back with another blog about car showrooms, and more specifically about how architectural wrapping is a great refurbishment solution for this setting.

Last time out we give you 7 reasons why you should be considering wrap for your next showroom refurb. This time, we’re taking it a step further, more specifically giving you 7 application examples you may see in the interior or exterior of this environment with architectural film.

Without any further ado, let’s get into it.


Exterior Cladding

The exterior of a showroom represents such an integral part of the showroom itself. The right exterior gives your business the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and it’s safe to say that with our specialist range of exterior films, you can do just that.

Our wrapping solution that involves applying directly onto exteriors has provided countless showrooms with a great option of changing their tired exterior cladding and facades into exteriors that look as good as new. With the ability to colour match also available, we can meet the demands of brand guidelines on any of the wrapping we do to the exterior of the building. Let’s not forget that with this method there will no need to close your business, with this quick and easy approach minimising downtime greatly.

One of the most common applications we are seeing the utilisation of architectural film is in the washroom environment, and definitely washrooms within car showrooms.

Many of our clients have been amazed by not only the aesthetical benefits but the business benefits architectural wrap has brought. Having washrooms out of action for refurbishing can be a nightmare for commercial properties with the legal implications this has. As demonstrated already in this piece, the speed and ease of install with film coupled with the lack of disruption ultimately means that you don’t have to have your washrooms out of action at all.

Let’s not forget about the conformability either. The flexibility the products we use here at HG Surface have allow us to refurbish a number of substrates in this environment, from doors to cubicles, tiles, counters and much more. A truly one stop solution.

Before Before
After After

Internal Doors

Internal doors and architectural wrap really are a dream combination, and for many reasons. Doors are very much a high traffic substrate in the car showroom environment, as often doors just require a facelift rather than actually being structurally replaced. Film provides the perfect solution to refurbish these surfaces.

Doors are generally speaking very flat which means one thing… a much easier application! You can have a brand-new door in just minutes. Don’t forget about the lack of disruption either (We make no apology for mentioning this key USP again). You can just imagine the impact replacing doors would have on a showrooms business, as ripping out and lugging the doors around would unquestionably be a right pain. There really is no need, and film can avoid all of this hassle.

Window Frames

Earlier in this blog we talked about the conformability in the applications and the benefits this solution has. Well, it’s not only the interior films that are conformable, the exterior films we use are conformable too.

The knock-on effect of this is that it opens up the opportunity of changing the look and feel of your window frames. Gone are the days when you have to stay with what you have got, or face replacing them at a very large cost. With our films you can simply change the look of your exterior AND interior frames with architectural film. Such a simple yet effective way of transforming the look of these substrates. Why replace it when you can wrap it? It’s a simple message.

Reception Areas

First impressions really can be make or break, can’t they? In the commercial, and more specifically here, the car showroom environment, first impressions can be the difference between a potential client buying a car or not. They say perceptions around a business can be determined in the first few seconds, so what they see in your reception area can be ever so crucial.

With architectural wrap, you can make your reception environment whatever you want it to be. With 1000+ finishes at your disposal, the design potential with architectural finishes really is unlimited, allowing you to create a scintillating entrance to your establishment.

Glass Design

Allow glass to be so much more than a structural necessity or a gateway to light.

Glass design can be such a forgotten application within any environment, let alone the showroom one. Nevertheless, it’s fair to say that there is a lot of interior glass within car showrooms, and we have decorative window films to turn your glass into a design statement. Take a look for yourself here.

Perhaps its not just a decorative look you’re looking for in your showroom environment? You may be looking to take your customers or staff into a breakout room and want privacy. Again, we can tick this box. The decorative window films in our repertoire can provide you with privacy whilst still bringing amazing aesthetics to proceedings, a truly combinational solution to interior glass.

Office Space

Within car showroom buildings is office space, and this is another place where we are seeing architectural films used time and time again. The beauty of using film here (like the washroom setting) is that product can be used on so many different surfaces. Whether you’re looking to change the look of your walls, tables, ceilings, cupboards or anything else for that matter, we can certainly help.

Can the product stand up to the wear and tear of day-to-day life in the office? Is a question you may have, and good one because undoubtedly the office space is a place that endures a lot of traffic. The answer to the question to the question though is ultimately yes. As touched upon in our last blog, the products we use are best in class, and are strong and durable, offering a life expectancy of 12 years too!

Architectural film is ultimately the perfect all-round solution for this setting.

This blog really does just scratch the surface when it comes to the application possibilities in the showroom setting with architectural wrap. Nevertheless, we hope that the piece has given you a greater understanding of the application potential with this solution.
