Bespoke Cabinetry

Transform Your Home with Bespoke Cobinetry


Bespoke cabinetry has become one of my most popular requests of late. Whether it be to house books or media equipment, built in cabinetry has seen a surge in popularity and depending on my client's requirements, I try to incorporate a custom piece into many of my design schemes, from Living Rooms to Bedrooms. The most popular being the library or TV and media unit and as well as being practical you can also have lots of fun making these into the key focal point of a room with the use of colour, lighting and styling choices. Below are some examples of recent bespoke cabinetry projects;

Reading Room

My client wanted to use the alcoves at either side of this beautiful marble fireplace to create some library storage for an abundance of books. We made use of the high ceilings by taking the shelving to the height of the picture rail to give this cabinetry a stately presence to the room. The bottom shelves were given more height so we were able to add additional lighting and a place to display larger decorative pieces, and holes were cut into the shelving so that cables for lamps could be hidden and kept tidy. The joinery was finished with a decorative cornice trim along the top which is in keeping with the Georgian property, together with a beading trim around the cupboard doors. To elavate this design we painted it in Farrow and Ball Wevet, a clean neutral which sits beautifully against the rich warm walls and bronzed cabinet handles. This space has been transformed into a relaxing and inviting reading nook for my client's to unwind in at the end of the day.

This room was going to be used as a working study and so lots of lighting and storage for books and files were required. The cabinetry was built along the back wall and as there was some alcove space to the left, it was continued around the corner to provide extra storage. We painted it in the same colour as the walls and the unit comprises of adjustable shelving with shaker style base cupboards and decorative lighting incorporated into the shelving design.

Living Room

This client had two alcoves on either side of her fireplace, but both in different sizes. There was no way of making the units on either side symmetrical so we added one small shelf to one side with space for a lamp and log storage below, and the other side we designed cabinetry for the TV, and adjustable shelving for books and display items with cupboard storage below. We gave the walls and cabinetry the same wash of colour.

No built in lighting was required in these cabinets but holes for cables were addressed to keep cables tidied away.

The main brief for this project was to create a cosy Snug for my clients to relax, entertain and read in. The room was lacking in storage and had no ceiling lights, and so we decided to design some stylish cabinetry to house books, games and drinks and create layers of extra light by incorporating some wall lighting into the unit by using extendable wall lights and a dimmable picture light. We also installed some side lamps and a standing lamp in order to create additional ambience lighting and keep the room cosy. We opted for dark blue cabinetry and incorporated adjustable shelving into the unit to allow the client the flexibilty to display different items. We also added base cupboards for additional storage for games and drinks.
