Is it possible to make space from ignored space? Absolutely. A room can look and function so much smarter, with bespoke fitted furniture.
Tim Bywater-Owens is the talented carpenter behind West London Carpentry. They make bespoke wardrobes, alcove and wall units, shelving and storage. Whether you have a family that’s growing, a clothes pile that’s not shrinking or a desk that’s burgeoning - their skills help you to maximise storage in a limited space.
Here Tim gives a few suggestions:
Exploit height and width
“Ceiling height cupboards not only make a room appear taller, they will give valuable extra inches of storage space too.”
Use every inch inside – and out
“Furniture built around a chimney breast alcove can be maximised by fitting hooks, racks, or shelves for convenient storage.”
Hide the clutter
“Streamlined doors can hide a mass of clutter! Adjustable shelves are more flexible. A modular design with shelving, cupboards and drawers can be multi functional.”
“The finished piece of furniture should sit comfortably in your room and blend easily into the décor. Nothing should catch your eye - obtrusively.”
When you meet Tim, it’s evident to see his passion for good design and quality workmanship. To find out how Tim can help your home book a free consultation and tap into his talent.
