Wood and timber were once the most utilised materials in and around the home. With many homes boasting wooden furniture from top to bottom, with the more ornate and grand designs, and others having stunning wooden doors and windows. However, over the last few decades, the wood has been replaced with the use of more “modern” materials, such as plastics and uPVC. Here at Brinard Joinery, we are glad to see wood making a grand comeback into the world of exterior and interior design and hope that this trend will continue for many years to come.
So how can you introduce this fine material into your home and life?
From the front door
The best place to start with on the introduction of where we can introduce a little wood into your home is with the front door. In years gone by, wooden doors have been taken out and replaced with the likes of uPVC and composite doors, thanks to older wooden doors swelling in bad weather meaning they could sometimes have a bit of an issue opening and closing with ease. However, the introduction of new treatments for wood, and the use of Accoya wood by Brinard Joinery means that this is no longer a concern.
Not only does the use of modern treatments mean that wood is back to being the great option for your front door, you can also have the door made bespoke, meaning that even if your doorway is not square, or your style is a little unique, it can be made perfectly to suit you and your home. We also offer a range of paint colours from Teknos, meaning that you can even have your door in the colour of your choice.
Alongside the change in front doors over the years, we have also seen a number of people opt for the plastic appearance of uPVC window frames. To many lovers of wood, the use of uPVC just simply looks unappealing, and we are right up there with that view. Change out your current window frames, and look at investing in the timeless classic appearance of the wooden window frames. Again with the advances in technology wooden windows have never been so energy efficient! Bespoke frames are made to fit perfectly within your window space, even if they aren’t the most square of designs, meaning that there will be no gaps to allow a draught, and then we fit A-Rated windows, even up to triple glazing.
When we are making changes to the interior of our home, one of the biggest features in the home, is the one that is most commonly overlooked. The staircase. Whether you look at investing in a big grand bespoke staircase to entirely chance the entrance to your home. Or you just want to change up the bannisters and look at having a bespoke design created for you. You can change the whole feel of the space, with something you may have previously overlooked changing.
Country Style Kitchens
With the introduction of made to measure kitchens available from a variety of hardware stores, kitchen fitters and even the likes of a Swedish company we all know of, wooden kitchens are being replaced left right and centre. However, we still strongly believe that investing in a bespoke wooden kitchen offers you a timeless space, with a lifespan that is sure to exceed those that are on offer from other sources. Another fine benefit of a bespoke wooden kitchen is that any changes to the bespoke design or fit, can be made on-site when being installed, ensuring that you have access to your brand new bespoke kitchen with parts needing to be taken away if any adjustments are required. We can also offer you matching kitchen/diner furniture to continue the style throughout.
The options for the use of bespoke joinery in and around your home truly are limitless. This means that it even includes the furniture in your home. From bespoke benches and tables in your kitchen, to a bookcase in the living room, a cupboard under the stairs or built-in wardrobes. If you have an idea of a piece of furniture that you would like to see in your home, opting for bespoke joinery means that you can get this idea, from inside your mind, onto paper or a computer design and then into reality made from the finest sustainable materials.
Here at Brinard Joinery, we love a challenge, whether its something new that we haven’t tried before, or something that we are renowned for, but with a twist.
