Following their delight with their new kitchen in Hayes, Kent, David and Mary asked us back to design a new study with a very specific brief – it needed to work for both of them.
Hers and his … his and hers
The emphasis for the design of the new study was that the space needed to be equally attributed to David and Mary so they both had the working space they needed, but without compromising on aesthetics. The balance we have achieved speaks for itself:
Clean lines, robust construction
David and Mary chose the strength and durability of oak MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard) units for their cabinetry. We suggested painted, solid edging to conceal the joins between the units and the light tracking. This attention to detail really enhances the overall feeling of calm.
Solid-edged oak shelves and solid oak desks ensure a substantial construction that’s built to last and to look lovely year after year.
The open shelving units are illuminated with warm light to show off the books and treasures that are displayed – the finished result is a very pleasing space that is tidy, but doesn’t lack the personal touch.
Storage cupboards have been incorporated under each desk, the central unit neatly houses a TV and printer, with electrics subtly concealed beneath.
Setting the tone
The units are painted to match Little Greene Paint Company’s ‘Juniper Ash’, which works beautifully with the illuminated tones of the wood in the open units.
The warm parquet wooden floor installed by A J Rogers continues the theme.
