So you’re considering a new bespoke joinery project for your home. What should I do next? This seems like a question that runs through most people’s minds. Bespoke joinery isn’t like walking into a furniture shop and choosing a ready-made piece. It requires a lot of planning and thought from start to finish.

As a bespoke joinery ourselves, we have seen the whole process over and over again with all of our clients. We thought it would be helpful to discuss how to plan your next bespoke joinery project in the words of an expert.

Choose Your Product

You may already know exactly what product you want to order. On the other hand, you might like the look of bespoke joinery but you’re not sure on which product to choose. One of the best things about bespoke joinery is that no two products are the same. At Brinard Joinery, we have crafted many products such as external doors, windows, staircases, kitchens, conservatories, orangeries, tables & chairs, TV units, and bookcases. The list doesn’t end there, no matter how unusual your desired project may be!

Take Accurate Measurements

Once you have selected your desired joinery product, it’s essential that you take the necessary accurate measurements. For example, a bespoke kitchen needs precise measurements of where the doors and windows are to design a perfectly fitted kitchen for that space. All our products are tailored to your specification including the space you have available and the measurements. It’s quite an easy mistake to use the wrong measurements. Even the slightest difference in dimensions can result in the final product simply not hanging or fitting properly. 

Consider The Materials

As with any product, it’s important to consider what it is made from and the quality. Poor quality joinery can come down to the materials used. When looking for bespoke joinery, it’s worth questioning what materials they will use to make your product. At Brinard Joinery, we use the world’s leading high-technology wood known as Accoya, as well as high-quality glazing and ironmongery when crafting our products.

Design, Location And Functionality

If you’re planning a bespoke joinery project, you need to think about the finished product. Give some thought to the design and colour. Will it match the rest of the room’s decor or your overall home style? Next, you need to think about where your new product will be located within your property, whether it be internal or external. Will it blend in nicely with its surroundings? Finally, you need to also think about what the product will be used for and how to use it to its best potential.
