Designs to Inspire

Love custom joinery. Helps utilise space and can add value to a home.

Some clever ideas are to use previously wasted space, such as with kick boards, to store items such as trays in a kitchen.

Definitely worth taking the time to plan properly and to find a great crafts person that can help conceal any imperfections, such as with uneven walls.

A great read. We are towards the end of our new build and used custom joinery throughout. Very happy with it all. QKM kitchens are amazing and their quality and craftmanship is superb.
We still have alot to do but so far very pleased.
