Reflecting on Our Top Bespoke Carpentry Projects of 2023

As we step into a new year, we at BA Carpentry take a moment to reflect on some of our most notable projects of 2023. From creating functional yet elegant home offices to designing wardrobes that complement the opulence of luxury apartments, each project presented its own unique set of challenges and rewards. Let's delve into the details of two standout projects from the past year:

Tailored Home Office in Knaresborough, Harrogate

Our journey with this particular customer began a few years ago when we crafted bespoke fitted wardrobes and vanity tables to their utmost satisfaction. Fast forward to 2023, and they reached out to us again, this time with a new challenge: transforming a space into a comfortable and efficient home office.

With the customer transitioning to remote work, comfort and functionality were paramount. We meticulously measured every aspect of the space, including where the customer's legs would swing under the table, ensuring a truly bespoke fit. The design embraced a traditional shaker style, incorporating a top counter cabinet to discreetly store everyday essentials.

To maximise storage and organisation, we integrated open cube shelving for files and a printer, alongside drawers tailored for a filing cabinet. Understanding the importance of ergonomics, we introduced a curved desk to optimise space and comfort, making those long workdays a little more bearable.

The project was brought to life with a timeless finish of Farrow and Ball Light Blue 22, juxtaposed with white oak internal boards. This blend of functionality and aesthetics resulted in a home office that seamlessly integrated into the customer's lifestyle.

Luxurious Wardrobes in York

Nestled in a luxury apartment within an old listed building, overlooking the historic Terry's Chocolate Orange factory and York racecourse, our next project demanded a design that exuded sophistication and charm.

Drawing inspiration from the apartment's upmarket ambience, we crafted fitted wardrobes that echoed traditional elegance. The incorporation of fretted mirrored doors and traditional mouldings, along with meticulous attention to detail in plinth and cornice panelling, elevated the wardrobe's grandeur, adding depth and character to the space.

Our approach focused on marrying functionality with luxury, ensuring the wardrobes not only met the practical storage needs but also seamlessly integrated with the apartment's lavish aesthetic.

Family-Friendly Bespoke Fitted Boot Room in Harrogate

In the bustling town of Harrogate, amidst the whirlwind of family life, BA Carpentry was commissioned to bring about some organisation to a customer's home with a custom boot and coat room that perfectly encapsulated the essence of functionality and style for a busy household with two children.

Understanding the unique demands of family living, we set out to create a bespoke fitted boot room that not only provided ample storage but, also seamlessly integrated with the existing features of the home.

The Boot room unit integrated panel shaker doors in a serene hue of green smoke which added a subtle yet stylish accent to the space. In contrast, we opted for tough-wearing oak for the open cubes which were measured specifically for the size of shoes the family wanted in each section. The oak was strategically incorporated to introduce a touch of warmth and variation in colour, while also breaking up the design aesthetically. Under the bench tailored to accommodate the family's wellies, keeping clutter at bay and ensuring a tidy entrance. Additionally, a closed unit on the right discreetly concealed items like a clothes horse and vacuum cleaner, maintaining a clean and organised appearance.

True to our ethos of customisation, every aspect of the unit was meticulously made to measure, ensuring a perfect fit for the family's needs.

As we brought this project to life, we were reminded of the importance of crafting spaces that not only meet the practical needs of our clients but also enrich their daily lives with thoughtful design and attention to detail.

Customised Kitchen Design For Optimised Accessibility

Our fourth project took us into the heart of our customer's home in Leeds, where we embarked on a mission to create a bespoke kitchen that not only exuded elegance but also prioritized functionality and accessibility.

Central to the design brief was the goal to minimise movement within the kitchen, allowing our customers to reach everything they needed effortlessly while cooking. To achieve this, every aspect of the kitchen was meticulously made to measure, and tailored precisely to the customer's requirements.

Soft-close drawers adorned with scooped pull handles replaced traditional ironmongery, ensuring ease of use without hindering mobility. The design seamlessly integrated a larder unit to house the boiler, optimising space and functionality.

Quartz worktops provided durability and sophistication, while a large breakfast bar island became the focal point of the kitchen, complete with an integrated hob and extractor, pull-out bin, and spice rack. Customised features such as a pantry cupboard and deeper cabinets to accommodate appliances like the soda stream and coffee machine showcased the bespoke nature of our service.

In keeping with our commitment to supporting local businesses, all materials were sourced from Yorkshire-based companies, contributing to the regional economy and reducing our carbon footprint.

Before commencing work, we provided detailed SketchUp drawings, allowing the customer to visualise the end product and ensure alignment with their vision.

This project not only exemplifies our dedication to craftsmanship and attention to detail but also underscores our commitment to creating spaces that enhance the daily lives of our customers, making everyday tasks a seamless and enjoyable experience.
