Built-in Furniture

Built in furniture is cabinetry tailored to fit an exact space in your home, making the most of all the interesting shapes and layouts. It can be used to make an area visually beautiful, to maximise the space or, usually both.
It has an impactful influence on the style of the room, whether it is to suit a period style property with moldings and fluting, or to a contemporary space with clean lines and minimal decoration.


Alcoves - often difficult to find furniture that fits the opening, built-in naturally works wonders here. The furniture becomes part of the room instantly, with a clean finish and no gaps. Ornaments can be displayed, books can be stacked, the television can be given a less intruding home, and storage can be added, for board games, films, or anything else you want to hide away from view.

Understair - The most commonly wasted space in the house, and typically an obstacle course to find something you regularly need.
With a limited amount of solutions on the market to make use of this (often large) area, built-in understair storage is unmatched in its functionality. Trouble finding shoes, bags, the ironing board and vacuum can be removed from your daily frustrations.

Wardrobes - A combination of hanging space, drawers and shelving. When built into a bedroom, this is the ultimate piece of furniture to declutter. Personalised to your own belongings to make efficient use of the space, this tidies everything away neatly and free from dust.
Other Built-in work - Almost anywhere in the house can have built in furniture where it's needed, whether its a seating area under a bay window, a bookcase in a hallway, a shoe cupboard in a porch, or any area storage is needed.
There are a variety of materials and finishes I offer, the most common I use are birch plywood or a special moisture resistant MDF  for cabinets, and solid wood or spray painted doors. I recommend using BLUM soft close hinges and under-mounted runners.
