As well as supplying and fitting plantation shutters and a variety of blinds for our clients, The Shutter Studio is regularly commissioned for carpentry and joinery projects. One such project we recently completed was a bespoke pair of Shaker style alcove units for a customer based in Beckenham.
The Shutter Studio employs a team of qualified carpenters and joiners to tackle difficult shutter installations and construct made-to-measure radiator covers, bookcases, wardrobes and all manner of fixtures and furniture. When the customer first contacted us to arrange a free home consultation for shutters, they also expressed an interest in having some storage units made for their living room.
In order to provide an accurate quote for the bespoke works, we dispatched an experienced surveyor with a background in joinery to the customer’s home. While at the property, our surveyor measured the windows and discussed our shutter range with the customer before taking the dimensions of the alcoves either side of the chimneybreast and speaking with the customer about what they wanted and the best way to achieve it. Armed with the relevant measurements as well as detailed information and a range of images of similar Shaker style units from the customer, The Shutter Studio’s pricing team worked out a cost to complete the works.
The bulk of the works took place in our Croydon workshop by our joiner, Matt, with the final touches completed onsite during installation. The simplistic elegance of Shaker style furniture can be a great addition to a home of any age, providing a practical and visually appealing storage solution for any room.
Our customer was delighted with the finished units and allowed us to share these great images. If you have alcoves in need of sprucing up with some furniture, a pair of matching bespoke storage units can really bring a room together, be it a drawing room, dining room or lounge.
