New store counter

New store counter in Safemode Neutral Bay

New Store Counter

Safemode computer services got a new store, so they needed a new store counter. James came to us to discuss his options.

He liked the Longton reception desk. It gives you loads of space already, but for James, we worked together to make the return on the desk to suit him. We ended up with a custom 3m return on the desk for Safemode.

The Longton is made out of HMR board. It is finished in hard wearing, white gloss laminate. With these materials, under normal use, the counter will look new for years to come.

Custom Amanda reception desk

Car wash Custom Amanda reception desk

Custom Amanda reception desk

Sam from Blue Star car wash contacted us about creating a custom Amanda reception desk that suited the needs he had.

Through open communication both ways, his needs and design was realised. He liked the Amanda desk due to its streamline look, and wanted to continue that smoothness into a taller privacy panel. On all edges of the bench top facing customers we put the taller panels. This created a private area so the computer and documents weren’t on display for customers to see all of.

HMR board was used to make all areas of the desk, making it a sturdy desk to stand against time. Hard wearing white gloss laminate was used to finish the desk, which under normal use, won’t scratch or peel. Hence if taken care of, it will look new for a long time.

Wembley reception desk for tutor’s office

Top of the Class Professional Tuition in Bella Vista is setting up a new office. The tutoring business is expanding and needed a larger premises. They liked the Wembley reception desk. They were after a quick, fast and easy, also well priced reception counter that didn’t compromise on style. Their office is located on the second flood, but the Wembley is designed to fit into lifts and office spaces so that wasn’t a problem when it came to moving in.

The décor in their offices are plain white walls, blue commercial carpet on the floor with white waiting room chairs. The white gloss Wembley fit in nicely with these neutral colours.

After delivering the counter, the tutoring business was having people coming in to measure and create a sign for the front of the desk.

Hair salon consultation counter

Nowra Hair salon consultation counter

Hair salon consultation counter

The southern highlands has a new Hair salon consultation counter in town.

The consultation counters are selling like hot cakes at the moment, people like practicality and style.

Daniel from European Hair Design liked the large size of the consultation counter, with enough space to sit two people. This counter provides a large work area for a busy receptionist. But it doesn’t skimp on style in doing this, with a nice large, framed and lit up panel at the front. The panel looks good plain, but even better with your sign displayed on it.

Consultation counters are made out of HMR board. They are finished with hard wearing, scratch resistant laminate. This counter will look like new for a long time under normal use.

Large counters like this one create a useful wall like barrier for the receptionist to have their personal work space. Thanks to only being a counter though, and not a wall, the receptionist remains very approachable.

Orange NSW reception desk

Orange NSW reception desk for Signarama

New Orange NSW reception desk

The Signarama franchise has opened a new store and needed a new signature Signarama Orange NSW reception desk

Audrey and Chris, a mother and son team, have taken over the Signarama franchise in Orange, near Bathurst. They escaped the rat race of Sydney to the nice country town of Orange for this new business venture. Being a Signarama business, it has a high profile and huge potential. Audrey and Chris bring in fresh energy and revitalisation, to uphold the corporate image that Signarama is implementing through their franchises.

They are going to put sales products on the wall behind the counter to leave the counter free, in contrast to other non-sign shops which often put signs on the counters!

The Signarama Desk

Signarama as a franchise has been buying a specific desk off Maif, which is a modified Kenardy reception desk.

Your branding sits simply on the front of the desk. It creates a smooth, seamless look with its intended lack of profiles.

Our desk is made with hard wearing white gloss laminate, that will stand the test of time under normal uses.

Front of consultation desk

Dee Why Physio decided to move premises into a bigger and better facility. A Custom consultation reception desk was perfect for their new surrounds.


The business outgrew the old venue, so when it came time to renew the least, they looked around the local area and found an office very suited to their needs.

Gabriella worked closely with us in coming up with a functional design that suited her needs perfectly. She liked the consultation counter because of the size, and that she could have a couple people working there. Once that design was decided for the front, it got modified by extending the return and putting it on the outside of the counter rather than behind. A privacy panel was also added to the side so employees have privacy to work. She now has lots of space for printers, scanners and other office equipment.

Colours and materials

The physio like the look of the clean white frontage with the light, and is going to get a sign on the front at a later date. Her décor is blue walls, grey patterned carpet tiles with contrasting white and orange office chairs to go with the desk. It is a nice open office, with windows all around and wheelchair access. Overall the look is very effective, not clashing, but complementing each other.

The consultation desk is made of HMR board, covered with a hard wearing white gloss laminate. 32mm HMR was used to provide the necessary strength to the table like return on the side of the desk, which provided a uniformed look finish with the 32mm bench on top.

In addition to their regular services, with the new extra space, they are offering professional aerobic exercise classes.

Gabriella has an experienced team of physio therapists and can look after all your regular and sports injuries.

Custom Office Joinery Ryde

Custom Office Joinery Ryde for Property Management

Custom Office Joinery Ryde

MaiF supplied some Custom Office Joinery Ryde area. A small property management company was in the market for furniture for a small office in Ryde/Top Ryde. They needed a kitchenette, office desks, front reception counter, printer station and other small joinery items.

The vibrant white gloss of the counters and desks looked good with the colours Joe had set up in the office space. The glass petitioning and grey carpets contrasted nicely with the white of the joinery.

The office desks we made suited the design of their office. They give plenty of space to sit on both sides, the customer side and employee side, allowing plenty of room to communicate with customers. Due to using glass petitioning in the office, extra care was taken to make the joinery look good from both sides.

All the office furniture was assembled in the factory, then disassembled, delivered and installed on site. Most of the joinery was finished in hard wearing white gloss laminate. This material is more durable than plain melamine and gives it a smooth finish.

MaiF services the Sydney area for office fit outs such as this. Please ring to discuss your office needs.

Joe serves his customers from Ryde and surrounding suburbs such as Epping, Eastwood, Gladesville and Macquarie Park in his stunning new office.

Black Trade Desk

Outdoor Elegance’s Black Trade Desk

Black Trade Desk

Tamara said of the trade desk: “Great service from initial enquiry with Maif to job completion on the date agreed. More importantly at the time agreed to minimise disruption for the shop. Many thanks, Tamara.” Tamara from Outdoor Elegance behind her Black Trade Desk.

Outdoor Elegance needed a shop counter for their showroom Tamara manages in Terry Hills. They needed something that was appealing to the eye and large enough for their store. It also had to be practical enough and to provide a certain amount of storage.

The Black Trade Desk is a fantastic way to go if you are after a streamline and professional side to present to the customers. Along with that, you get a large work desk and some shelving for storage on your side of the desk. This desk is made of black melamine front and white melamine cupboards. Bench tops are made from laminate, which is a hard wearing material better than melamine. Its a durable finish that shows very few scratches with a normal amount of care. The counter disassembles for easy installation. We install locally, but interstate deliveries require some assembling by a person with basic assembling skills and with a battery screw driver. Comes with cable entries for computers, printers, etc. We have shipped this counter to Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. It comes in a variety of configurations, ring to discuss your needs.

Through communication, a custom design of the Black Trade Desk was created specifically for Tamara. Tamara got her custom black trade desk installed on the 6th of December. We were able to customise the trade desk to suit Tamara’s needs as regards measurements and the return on the desk.
