Waterhall Joinery were approached by a couple who were updating the interior decor of a property they had bought. They had very fixed ideas on the living space they were trying to create.
One of the key aspects of their design was changing all of their downstairs doors, the new doors were to be made from solid oak and have long varied length glazed panels. This glazing pattern was to be mirrored in their lounge / kitchen area with a solid oak room divider.
It was a pleasure to work with people who had such definitive idea of what they were trying to create to fit in with the overall vision.
We worked to their design offering our advice and knowledge on the materials and how best to create their bespoke room divider and doors. After a house visit to take accurate measurements and to get a feel for the style of the house, we created drawings based on their designs and were able to suggest ideas for other details such as glazing moldings and ironmongery.
Although the room dividers and doors had a straight forward plain style, the complications were in achieving the accurate horizontal breaks in their elongated glazed panels, so as to achieve a random look which would be copied from door to door and divider, despite their differing sizes.
Having made and installed the bespoke room dividers and doors before Christmas, we returned last week to view them now that the downstairs was totally finished and carpets had been laid.
It was fantastic to see our work in it’s finished setting and how it really complimented the client’s vision and linked all areas of the ground floor.
The clients were delighted with the results as you never know whether an idea will work to its full potential, until the entire project is complete. They felt the doors worked perfectly and tied the entire design together. Overall, a very satisfying job.
