Many of our clients need to maximize storage space in their London family homes.
We build bespoke furniture, which enables us to design various ways of incorporating this into kitchens and rooms alike.
We have put together a few suggestions of how storage can be included into a space without loosing out on the desired design and style.
The hidden draw
Under a hob the cabinet door panel hides the top and bottom draw. The base draw is large enough to fit pans so they are within easy reach and the top draw is slim enough to store spatulas and ladles.
These kitchen drawers are built in solid beech, dovetailed and fitted with a hand sprayed door finished in Farrow and Ball Elephants breath.
Every kitchen must is a larder unit, tall and an excellent room feature. This double cabinet is veered in American White Oak. The spice rack is ideal for stowing small items and the deep shelving and drawers provide ample storage space for larger items.
Occasionally clients request electrical sockets at the back of a larder so you can use the shelving space as a breakfast bar to stow away kettles and toasters.
The drawers are built in timber and dovetailed to deal with large internal weights.
This large built-in cabinet has two large sliding doors, allowing you to access all three cabinet areas as storage whilst also displaying cherished items on the deep shelf. The internal cabinet lights emphasize the veneer and wine racking as a structural feature. These sliding doors are flush with the cabinet frame; cut out handle detail with a hand sprayed finish.
Making use of optimum space is shown in this archway shelving; the ornate columns, wood panelling and dado moulding compliment the period property and traditional design of the kitchen.
The open shelving is ideal for storing items needed for two different rooms i.e. a kitchen and dinning room. Exceptionally functional and chic!
These wall-mounted cabinets are an example of how to display glassware and crockery in an attractive way. Rather than have the wall units boxed in by solid wood and spray finished. The garden seen through the large window is reflected in the glass doors and mirrors on the side of the cabinet, making the cabinet recede into the wall space thus making the room feel bigger.
