Cupboards

Sometimes a mass-produced unit isn’t suitable, then a bespoke fitted cupboard is the answer. They are often built beneath a stairs, in a utility area or within an alcove. Here at F A Ingram Carpentry, a new fitted cupboard will be the ideal solution.

I am often asked to make cupboards so they can be decorated by the customer themselves. This means they save on the labour because they feel able to do it themselves.

Alcove cupboards are often made with floating shelves fitting within the space up to the ceiling. These can be quite thick, which will give a modern look when painted.

The additional storage will help you hide those unsightly wires, plugs and sockets. Alcove storage is best suited to a Victorian style home, whilst a modern home will benefit from increasing storage in the smaller rooms.

Cupboards can be decorated any colour or retain their natural wood finish. They can also utilise flat-pack furniture, or be made using other off-the-shelf items such as light weight doors. This can make a fitted cupboard a very economic proposition.

Flat-pack carcasses can be accessorised. Using timber columns, or raised on plinths with a cornice or worktop, fitted cupboards can become attractive from a very simple base.
