Are you in the market for made-to-measure wardrobes? Are you planning to invest in one of our handmade kitchens? While the benefits of bespoke joinery are clear to see, you understandably want complete peace of mind before committing to a project. As a genuinely local, Cobham-based business, we do whatever it takes to reassure and instil confidence. Whether you’re keen on walk-in wardrobes, a custom staircase or any other bespoke furniture, we ensure you have no doubts before we move into the design phase.
Like any reputable company, we don’t expect you to simply take our word for it. As such, we have answered some of the most frequent questions we receive about bespoke joinery below.
If we haven’t covered your query, please call us on 07719 065 020. Our joiners are always happy to help.
What makes bespoke furniture better than ready-made options?
If you’re like most homeowners, you’re likely conscious about how much space you have in your Cobham home. If this is true, you want to maximise every available inch. We craft made-to-measure wardrobes, staircases, bookshelves and furniture to fit a specific space. This means you not only get a beautifully crafted piece, but also one tailor-made for its environment.
But space-optimisation isn’t the only motivation. If you want to restore an older property with period charm, flat-pack, off-the-shelf solutions simply won’t work. Our joiners excel at traditional and contemporary designs alike, so we produce results sympathetic to the period.
Is bespoke joinery cost-effective?
Yes, it is. While options like walk-in wardrobes and handmade kitchens may involve a larger upfront cost when compared with mass-produced products, they have a much longer lifespan.
We craft bespoke furniture to exceptional standards and in line with your exact requirements. It’s highly likely, then, that these products are one-time investments. We can’t say the same for lesser quality items.
Not only do you need to replace them numerous times, but you also have to spend time sourcing and assembling them. You usually need to pay for delivery too. Of course, all of this presumes that you can actually find a like-for-like replacement. If the manufacturer discontinues your item, you will probably need to compromise for the replacement. This is usually at the detriment of the design scheme you have taken the time to create for your Cobham home.
How long will it take to manufacture my goods?
Unfortunately, we cannot give a specific answer to this question. The timescale depends entirely on the items you require. For example, made-to-measure wardrobes and handmade kitchens take longer to design and build than a coffee table.
We can only give you a more accurate timeframe if you contact us with the specific nature of your job.
Are your staff qualified?
Yes, they are. James Fuller, the founder of our company, holds an advanced GNVQ in carpentry and joinery from Guildford College. Our other employees have City & Guilds level 3 qualifications in carpentry and bench joinery.
To supplement our qualifications, our team shares over 80 years of practical trade experience. From walk-in wardrobes to handmade kitchens, when it comes to bespoke joinery in Cobham and the neighbouring areas, there’s nothing we can’t handle.
Can you provide style- and colour-matching with bespoke furniture?
Absolutely! We understand that made-to-measure wardrobes, cabinetry and other bespoke furniture often replaces a much-loved item. If you have a long-established design scheme, you naturally want your new piece to slot seamlessly into place.
You can rely on our time-served team to find the perfect fit, both in style and colour.
