Cupboards, wardrobes and shelving

Cupboards, wardrobes and shelving

Domestic storage
Paint finished wardrobes, cupboards, shelving, false chimneys and bookcases can all be designed to suit the customer. Some customers have furnished me with their own sketches for me to quote on or, I can sketch ideas during a conversation so that we (the customer and I) can both be sure we are talking of the same idea.

Under stairs storage

A customer asked me to box in an open area under stair and to manufacture to make a secure area.

Made to measure tall (or short) wardrobe doors.

A bedroom had a natural recess that went from floor to ceiling. I was asked to make full height pair of doors with a simple panel design and provide a central division with a shelf either side and provide removable hanging rails. These doors were made with a simple, traditional shaker type panel but the face design could have a variety of styles and also take a moulding within the panel edge.

Reorganising existing cupboards.

I was asked if I could provide better storage within existing cupboards. An adjustable shoe rack was required under the stairs and the existing bedroom wardorbes were adjusted to take a side storage box made of birch plywood and finished in an oil with hanging rails added.

A blind was fitted while I was there.

Chimney recess cupboard and floating shelves

A discerning customer who I had previously worked for required a unit to match an existing, freestanding tv cabinet which had a white paint finish and an oak top. They also required floating shelves to both sides of the chimnet breast. 

Understair sliding storage

The customer asked if I could build a drawer like storage system under their stairs. A ‘rod’ was drawn to make calculations easier. Birch plywood was used for the boxing and 700mm, 90kg load, fully extending drawer runners used as the sliding mechanism. MR mdf fascias were applied after all units were levelled. A door was also made.

Bespoke sliding door cabinets.

The customer asked me if I could make two units with adjustable shelving, using four cabinet doors he already had. The units had to be a set width within a garage. The customers’ worktop offcuts were to be fixed on the top finishing at a specific height. He was impressed with the result.
