About Us

The Decor Story

Rich sensory design has been a Decor speciality for over 40 years. The decorative and acoustic panel masterpieces of Decor have helped shape the horizon of modern architecture and design, and form the backdrop of everyday Australian adventures.

How We Do It

  1. We work with you closely at design stage.

    We discuss fire codes, acoustic requirements, environmental requirements and more. We discuss trends, your budget, your vision, and more.

  2. We use the best materials.

    We only purchase quality substrates that totally conform with all the relevant standards. Yes, they may cost a little more, but we firmly believe that quality comes before price.

  3. We hire the best people.

    They are well trained. Efficient. Reliable. Love to go the extra mile.
    And above all else, they must absorb the culture we have here at Decor Systems. We just love to make “WOW”!

  4. Basically, we do things the SMART way

    And that means you get superb panels, at a fair price, and have a great time doing it! It’s the Decor Systems way.

Since the 1970 Decor Systems have been applying our considerable experience and expertise to creating spaces that sound as good as they look!

We’ve developed a superb range of industry-leading acoustic panels providing standard and customised solutions to clients around the world. Today, we enjoy a fruitful working relationship with our client base and relish the opportunity to make their creative vision a reality! Get in touch today to discuss your project!
