The makeover, designed by Barker and Stonehouse merchandising director Claire Hornby, focuses on beautifully-designed room-sets created to show off an ever-changing mix of furniture, flooring and accessories.
It is hoped that the revamp will attract more customers and provide a new shopping experience.
Outside, the store has been given a facelift too, with reclaimed timber fascias and a brand new entrance.
The Darlington store is one of nine across the country. They include the retailer’s Teesside Park headquarters and one in Battersea, London.
The Darlington construction was carried out by North Yorkshire-based experts McLuckie Projects, which also worked on the Teesside, Knaresborough and Battersea stores.
Barker and Stonehouse Managing Director James Barker said: “Our Darlington store has always been far more than a furniture shop – and with this makeover it’s revealed its full potential as a place to gain inspiration and find something different.
“It’s important to us to continue to invest in our stores and our customers, and we’re delighted to unveil the truly unique shopping experience our Darlington store now offers.
“The first customers through the doors have told us they’re extremely impressed – and we’re looking forward to inspiring and impressing many more.”
