Neat storage solutions – Daniel Street, Bath

Posted by Bath Bespoke on 10 June 2015

This Georgian terraced house is on Daniel Street; a really lovely spot in central Bath just behind Great Pulteney Street and the Holburne Museum. This period house is arranged over four floors and is home to a family with teenage children. We were briefed on two fitted furniture projects, both designed to maximise the space and storage in the family’s study and their master bedroom.

Bath Bespoke’s workshop manager Tom Suter led the team on this project. Our client’s wanted to give their home-office a makeover: new desks, bespoke bookshelves and fitted cupboards to provide a neat storage area for all the family files and paperwork – they also wanted to open up the space so that there was enough room to work side by side at the desk. The bookcase we designed and made for them has period style mouldings and utilises the lost space over the door. The wide, integral desk was finished with a beautiful handmade solid oak top, a designated slot to house the printer, and a neat solution to hide unsightly cabling and leads.

In the master bedroom we were tasked with creating fitted wardrobes to replace the freestanding wardrobes they had been using. It’s a well known fact that really beautiful fitted wardrobes and storage can add intrinsic value to a house, so we took great care to design doors that are in keeping with the elegant proportions of their Georgian home, with minimal detailing and fuss. The room has lovely high ceilings and windows and our cornicing was inspired by the existing cornicing in this room. We also manufactured a bespoke skirting profile to match the original skirting boards. The bespoke fitted wardrobes incorporated hanging rails, shoe storage and soft-closing doors. All of our work was finished with a white eggshell paint – applied here in our workshops before fitting on site.

If you have a cramped and cluttered office at home, or an old wardrobe that’s stuffed to the seams, and would like some help creating storage solutions for your family – give us a call because we’d love to help.
