Period shutters

Many properties in Brighton have old shutters that either don't work very well or they've been taken off completely or someone has folded them permanently back and painted over them so they're stuck for good! I've refurbished existing shutters before or, like this job, made brand new shutters that fold back into their original pockets. It's a nice feeling reinstating period windows back to their former glory.

Curved Cherry wardrobe

This is the same property in Hanover Brighton that I fitted the curved alcove unit. As you walked into the bedroom and looked right there wasn't enough depth for a wardrobe between the door frame and the wall. What I designed was for the wardrobe to curve into the room so that the majority of it could be used for hanging clothes. The less deep section near the door was still used for shelving. The doors of this unit are book-matched veneered in cherry and operate on "touch to open" catches. This was a tricky old job but the result was very satisfying indeed!

Curved alcove unit in cherry

This property in hanover, Brighton had an awkward alcove as many Brighton properties do! The client wasn't sure whether to have a very shallow alcove unit or a deeper one which stuck out into the room. I worked with them on the design and came up with the idea of curving the whole front of the unit so that it flowed with the shape of the room. It worked beautifully and the rich colour of the cherry complimented other pieces of furniture in the room. The same customer now wants a large curved wardrobe for their bedroom!... I'll keep you posted!
