Study & Home Office Cabinets
As technology has improved the nature of the study or home office has changed. The trend in working from home is appealing as it allows more family time - we need no longer commute through peak hour, and perhaps we could even sleep a bit longer! However working from home also provides challenges - seemingly constant family time and easily blurred boundaries between personal and business life. The importance of a designated home office space is so important.
The designers at Oakwood take into account your need for privacy to conduct meetings, your working style and your storage requirements as well as considering practical desk and computer spaces and the materials and look of the home office furniture your home.
Feature wall panelling can produce stunning effects for very reasonable outlay. Oakwood can manufacture panels from a variety of decorative boards including laminated melamine panels in plain or patterned colours. Wood panelling in natural timber veneer of any species or engineered designer veneers can be finished in a variety of stains or simply clear polish to your selected gloss level. High-gloss painted panels are a popular option, these can be flat surface or have decorative routed patterns. For the artistic, intricate designs consisting of any number of individually shaped and coloured pieces can make up one complete panel. Border edges can be a striking or subtle feature. Any kind of panel can be adhered directly to any wall surface, or a less permanent option is to mount these panels with the use of split battens.
Successful design in custom built wall units produces practicality for the user as well as striking appearance. Oakwood’s designers are fully conversant with current European trends which emphasise the horizontal grain, a mixture of finishing materials, the use of glass doors in slim line metal frames and glass shelving. Special effect lighting can add a pleasing attractiveness when applied correctly. Finishing materials can be as varied as the design itself and any appropriate hardware fittings designed for kitchens can be built into furniture of this nature.
Wardrobes & Dressing Room Interiors
Little emphasis seems to be placed on storage solutions for wardrobes and dressing rooms, but logical designs can produce extremely satisfying results. Oakwood can design and produce cabinets that incorporate a place for any item of clothing. Individual sections for shirts, trousers, skirts, coats, etc, pigeon holes or slide out fittings for shoes, storage areas for handbags and a practical place to exhibit ties and belts with easy access. Internal drawers are an important part of these areas. They can be constructed with glass fronts or open faced and mounted on any type of telescopic runners, while internal drawer divisions separate items of clothing. The full range of materials and finishes can also apply to this kind of custom-made cabinetry and can be as varied as the design itself.
Oakwood can design and build your home library in any style from stately traditional to light and elegant to modern or anything in between, depending on your taste.
Our designers can advise you on finishes and shelving. For example, recessed or semi-recessed shelving combined with a timber or painted finish can give an elegant, lighter feel, while the use of timber veneers and architectural moulding will impart a traditional look to your bookcases and hanging shelves offer sleek, contemporary styling.
