Experience Australia’s largest & best selection centre at Spectra
With lots of space, an easy-to-browse layout and all the best brands under one roof, designing your new home has never been easier or more fun.
Experience our Spectra Showroom
We get it – with so many big decisions to make, choosing the colours, finishes and appliances for your new home can feel daunting. Which is why we created a state-of-the-art showroom that has been specially designed to make the process easy and enjoyable.
The incredible new 2,500-square-metre Spectra Selection Centre, located at our head office in Mulgrave allows you to view and select from over 3,500 materials, fixtures, fittings, and appliances from leading Australian and global brands. To help you choose with confidence, you’ll also find Carlisle’s latest interior and exterior design trends on display, alongside informative displays on complex topics such as heating and cooling, plus easy-to-use digital tools so you can see and save your selections at a glance.
From there, you make your way through nine distinct areas, each designed to showcase a different element of the home – designer kitchens, appliances, interior selections, bathrooms, flooring, lighting and electrical, exterior selections, windows and doors, and green living.
This unique ‘inside-out’ layout, starting with the kitchen and ending with exterior finishes, structures the selection journey to reflect how you actually live, making it easy to craft a holistic visual identity for your new home.
Along the way, you can delve into every aspect of home design, with everything from four full-size kitchens and eleven bathroom displays featuring the latest appliances and finishes, with more than 120 light fittings to over 70 door designs, as well as demonstrations that outline the energy savings afforded by insulation, heating and cooling, and double-glazing solutions.
Our design experts make it an easy and fun process
At each stage of the journey, expert Spectra Colour consultants are available to help you make the right decision, utilising special layout tables to create evocative mood boards that bring the materials to life and make it easy to visualise your finished home. An even more personalised service is offered in private appointment meeting rooms in the showroom’s ‘quiet zone’ or at appointment consultation desks, designed specifically for architectural and electrical planning. Skilled designers then create detailed plans and specifications for you from the creative office space at the centre of the showroom.
Need a little breathing space? We’ve included spaces where you can step away and grab a coffee, sit and think through your options or attend to your children’s needs, including a café, relaxing lounge areas, a fully-equipped parent's room and a kid's entertainment zone.
Cutting-edge digital technologies enhance the experience further. Throughout the showroom, Spectra Digital Kiosks, complete with integrated information panels and videos, offer inspiration on more than 85 topics. You can interact with these digital screens and use the supplied iPads to create individual online profiles where you can save your favourite images and products, enabling a smoother and more integrated selection process.
It's a whole new way to design your home - so why not make an appointment today and come and see what all the fuss is about.
