Are you sure you got the room to spare inside?…
At this time of year, we’re making plans to see family and friends and to spend time together at home. But to echo the immortal words of Slade, it can raise questions about space and storage!
We specialise in looking at space imaginatively. Our cabinet makers are true craftsmen who have applied their skills to busy homes across the South East, creating innovative storage and beautiful cabinetry, that comes into its own at this time of year.
Around the kitchen table
The informality (and convenience) of kitchen dining is increasingly popular. As well as cabinetry, we can also design and hand build bespoke furniture for your home.
Sometimes it can be difficult to find an off-the-shelf table that will fit the space that you have. We can create a beautiful piece that will make the most of your space, to be used and treasured by the family for years to come.
Never enough cupboard space…
It can feel like that, especially when stocking up on extra food and drink for entertaining. We are experts at making the most of every square inch of space.
By looking with fresh eyes, we see the potential to use space that could otherwise be wasted. We consider height, breadth and depth to find ways to combine functionality with practicality – to ensure that cabinetry, cooking and dining surfaces are multi-purpose wherever possible.
Bespoke wine storage
A dedicated space to store wine and drinks is something that we are increasingly being asked to design for our customers.
Whether you have a large space to dedicate to wine storage, or want to find creative and stylish ways to subtly incorporate it – we are always inspired to come up with a bespoke solution for your home.
However, if space is more limited, cabinetry can be cleverly designed to incorporate wine racks and space for glasses and drinks.
Whatever the size of the project, we can design and build bespoke storage that can be purpose built for you, or retrofitted into your existing space.
Incorporating a wine cooler gives another option for drinks storage that not only frees up space in your fridge, it keeps your wine at the perfect temperature.
Wine coolers can be adjusted to create different temperature zones, according to the wine and how it should be served.
Empty larder days…
A larder, or pantry, cupboard is a great addition to a busy kitchen. They can be free standing or hidden seamlessly within a run of cupboards.
Above all, it is so convenient to store groceries all in one place. Especially at this time of year when there seems to be constant stocking up for guests and entertaining!
Larder cupboards can be configured in several ways to combine shelving and drawers for maximum usability.
A cool shelf (often marble) is a popular addition not only to keep the larder at an ambient temperature, but also to provide extra worktop space for smaller appliances and kitchen essentials.
A great way to make the most of available storage space is to make use of height. It’s possible to achieve striking and stylish results by varying the height of cabinetry in one wall space to break up the eyeline and create interest.
Adapting cabinetry beneath work surfaces or casual dining areas such as breakfast bars and islands is another excellent way to increase storage space. These can be great places to stow away those items that aren’t used every day, but come into their own at certain times of year.
Raise a toast
A hidden bar is not only very good fun and wonderful for parties, it’s possible to store glasses and upright bottles for display in the upper section, and incorporate horizontal wine storage lower down.
Bespoke media units
Home entertainment is a big part of family life for many households. At Christmas, getting cosy in front of a festive film is an absolute joy.
A bespoke media unit can become a fantastic storage solution. We can tailor the design to your specifications, and tie in the style with your existing cabinetry and décor to create a seamless look.
If you’re lucky enough to have space for a utility room, you know what a useful and functional space they can be – particularly if they are well planned and the available space is made the most of.
Utility rooms can take the pressure of valuable kitchen space when used for white goods and additional storage – especially at busy times of year! They can also be well designed spaces in their own right with stylish additions such as tambour doors.
A warm welcome
A hallway can easily become cluttered, particularly when welcoming guests who are wrapped up for the cold weather.
We have designed and built beautiful cabinetry in many hallways to provide a calm and well-organised welcome.
