Bootroom and Utility

About the Project

This project saw two unusual rooms requiring two very different bespoke furniture solutions.

 

For the boot room, we took full advantage of the ceiling height, adding extra storage space above an already substantial piece in which every member of the family has their own cupboard and drawer.

 

Every cupboard includes a hanging rail and an adjustable shelf inside, whilst the drawers are extra deep to accommodate shoes. For more readily accessible storage though, the central seating area features its own coat hooks and underseat storage space too.

 

This is furniture built to last in a family home so we made sure it was fittingly finished. The Shaker-style doors are all hand painted in Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Grey to keep the boot room full of light whilst the solid oak seat and brushed steel handles and coat hooks are sure to stand the test of time and will age beautifully too.

 

Elsewhere in the house, the client tasked us with making the most of an awkwardly shaped utility room.

 

These bespoke storage units are considerably taller and much shallower than they would otherwise be in order to make the very narrow room usable without blocking access to the building’s underfloor heating controls.

 

We devised an integrated vertical combo unit for the washer and dryer which allowed for an uninterrupted oak worktop to run around the rest of the room, maximising the available space.

 

The same Shaker-style doors hand painted in Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey were used in this room to provide continuity throughout the house.
