Traditional Wardrobe & Special Order Flooring – Bathwick, Bath

Posted by Tom Jones-Marquez on 27 January 2016

Our clients recently relocated to the South West and bought a large Edwardian home in need of some improvements, their plan was to stamp a personal mark on the property’s interior with a few bespoke additions

First up was a wardrobe which we were given free license to design. We specified a favourite of ours – fully-framed traditional cabinets with solid hardwood panelled doors, all hung on antiqued, solid brass hinges and featuring our custom crown moulding and skirting to match. Behind the beautiful painted frontage are crown-cut walnut carcasses and mirrors. We finished the internals in a clear matt lacquer for real appreciation of the stunning European Walnut.

The sections were divided into his and hers, with a fitted dressing table and handmade drawers, each designed for the specific purpose of housing clothes, shoes and accessories.

Downstairs in the living room we offered our interior design advice for layout and colour scheme and laid an exquisite Ted Todd, hand-finished, special order hard-wood floor. The brushed, stained and hard-wax oiled finish does justice to the ultra wide Oak boards – we chose to use engineered boards due to their stability at this width.

We delighted our clients (and ourselves!) by noticing something hidden within the room, and after some careful digging and cutting we unveiled the most incredible window shutters we think we’ve ever seen. Having remained hidden away for decades they required careful restoration, which we did in-situ. We were very pleased to be able to reintroduce this stunning original feature to our client’s home. The shutters really were the cherry on the top of this hugely enjoyable job.

This job was carried out by a wonderful team, Cabinet Maker Laura Welsh and Project Manager Tom Suter.
