The nation’s desire for beautiful bespoke joinery has seen a resurgence in recent years. Homeowners are increasingly opting for bespoke joinery and custom made carpentry in their homes over cheaper off-the-shelf solutions.
In this blog we take a look at why people are embracing the benefits of the bespoke approach and the advantages that it offers.
Clutter free homes
Today’s style of interior decor means that we often favour clutter-free, streamlined homes. The UK is seeing an increasing trend for open plan living which makes it imperative for our clutter to be neatly hidden away. We also use an increasing amount of technology and gadgets around the home, which we want to have on-hand whilst at the same time ensuring that wires and other pieces of hardware are hidden from view.
Engaging a bespoke joinery craftsman is often the best answer to deal with these storage issues. Speakers can be built into bespoke shelving or coving in the ceiling. TVs – which often become an unattractive dominant feature in a sitting room – can be completely hidden away. With ingenious bespoke cupboard solutions, mess and clutter melts into the very walls, as if it isn’t there at all.
Expertly designed joinery will help you to maximise your storage and use the space you have available as effectively as possible. This makes much more sense than trying to shoe-horn an off-the-shelf storage option into your home.
We have completed a selection of beautiful bespoke joinery solutions for our clients. Take a look at our Projects Page for some inspiration.
A wise investment
Many home owners initially balk at the prospect of the expense associated with bespoke joinery and wonder if they can’t make do with a cheaper option? The truth is that bespoke joinery may seem like the expensive option at first, but in reality it is an excellent investment.
If you want to make a change to your home without embarking on a major renovation, introducing some bespoke joinery can add a wonderful, personal touch. In the UK we spend a huge amount of time and money on our homes, so investing in a feature that is created to your own specific requirements guarantees that it will reflect your own style and personality. The objective of bespoke joinery is to be both practical and also aesthetically pleasing so it really can enhance your living space.
It is also true that storage is often high on the list of requirements for house purchasers. Investing in quality bespoke joinery can increase your chances of a quick sale in the future and even maximise returns from the sale of your property.
As those of us who own old houses know, they are very rarely built along straight lines, so it can be difficult to find ready made cupboards and other features which fit. An expert joiner will be able to measure, plan, craft and install the right bespoke solution which will slot seamlessly into the space available, and fully reflect the style of your home.
If you want to make the most of your space and you need to work at home, why not consider your own home office? The genius of using bespoke joinery is that you can create your perfect work space from even the very smallest nook in your home.
