DESIGN SOLUTION – David explains …
What was the inspiration for the design?
Craig and Laura came to me with an idea of what they wanted to achieve and provided a few photos of the type of style they were looking for. This was a simple shaker design but with a modern twist. They had a couple of must have’s which were to maximise the available storage space and for it to not over power the room.
How did you put a modern twist on the project?
We realised early on in the design process that to really make the project pop that we needed to keep all the lines simple and uncluttered. We did this using a simple traditional shaker door, which was painted. Then adding the book matched oak drawer boxes internally really blends in nicely when the doors are pulled open.
Talk us through the how the internal space was decided?
Craig and Laura knew exactly what they needed to fit in, so at the brief stage they said to have his and hers to the left and right with drawers and a middle which could be split.
From the site survey, it was clear they needed more half hanging than full. So the layout of full hanging in the central cabinet with two less drawers just made the most practical sense for them.
How was the colour decided?
We colour matched to existing free standing pieces of furniture they had in the room.
What do you like most?
I really like the freshness that is revealed when you open the doors to reveal the book matched drawers. It’s so simple but yet so unexpected on this project.
